Spacecraft Melbourne

Backing Cloth Series - Wild


This incredible artwork is part of Spacecraft Melbourne's backing cloth series

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…after about three months the backing cloths have to be renewed.

amongst the layers and layers of accumulated print Stewart Russell finds chance compositions that we stretch and present in our store/showroom on Gertrude Street in Melbourne, Australia. they’re readable as a kind of conceptual diary, recording fleeting moments in time. Fragments of studio history, capturing memories and significant studio projects.
