Studio backing cloth series | Stewart Russell | June - Oct 19'
240 x 120 cm
Stretched and ready to hang
Our studio has three 7m print tables which are covered with a layer of felt which we then protect with a final layer of canvas which is the famous studio backing cloth.
These canvas backing cloths becomes saturated with print, tests, spills, experiments, doodles, arithmetic… and after about three months the backing cloths have to be renewed.
Amongst the layers and layers of accumulated print Stewart finds chance compositions that we stretch and present in our store/showroom on Gertrude Street in Melbourne, Australia. They’re truly wonderful paintings, but also readable as a kind of conceptual diary, recording fleeting moments in time. Fragments of studio history, capturing memories and significant studio projects
The backing cloth painting project fits perfectly with our attitude towards waste. A defining characteristic of the studio is to imagine ways to use all of our materials in our projects.
