Assemblage of found objects

Still a little over a week to go for my exhibition at Fairfield Library Gallery Walk (Station Street Fairfield).  Hope you get a chance to see it. Everything is listed on the QR code however if you go to my website I have all the works on paper and sculptural assemblages listed (also priced). Just contact me directly if you are interested in anything.  I can deliver if local or post to you if you are far.

Cetta Pilati who is also exhibiting has some gorgeous marble and steel works. They are some of the very smallest work she has made so it is a great opportunity to collect a piece if you have been thinking about it.

www.annewarrenart.com  Go to Works on Paper and Sculpture page for details and of course contact page if you need to send me a request or to ask for more information.

We would really love you to see what we have been making.

My assemblages are found objects, toys, blocks of wood, scrabble bits etc., from op shops and garage sales and bits and pieces that I have hung on to for years.  I found people were very interested in what I was doing and that they were very generously gifting me some objects to use.

The collage characters are from found images in old books that I have collected for years.  I made a series of these characters about 15 years ago and have just revisited making these again.  I have added some wood blocks on the back of them to give them some distance from the wall which makes for more interesting shapes and shadows.  The character collage works in Fairfield are displayed on blocks because I do not have a wall behind to hang them however blocks can be supplied and more permanently secured to the characters if you wish.  I personally love the lone figure sitting unexpectedly on a wall.

Very, very sadly, I have not been gifted any old books or ephemera with pictures of animals or people or birds or dancers that would be good for collage. 🙁

Mouse.   Character Collage with block attachment on the back as wallart.  $50

Please keep in mind that I am still available to do workshops in art with beginners or more experienced in various Media.  See my pages for works on paper, painting etc.

You can do a one on one class, a one off class, series of four classes or ongoing fortnightly classes to suit your needs.

Thanks for visiting, Wishing you all a fabulous December. 🙂

Congratulations and good luck to all the participants in the Alphington Open Studios.  Just letting you know that I will not be participating this year as I have several other things happening.

My work is available for you to view at the studio in Alphington just send me an email and you can come and have a look whenever it suits.

I will be having a small exhibition with artist Cetta Pilati at the Fairfield Library Gallery Walk (the little windows) from the 4th December until the 20th December 2023.  We have both selected lively small scale pieces that have a bit of fun and whimsy about them.   We have left our contact details including a QR code within the display cabinets.  This exhibition is not manned however Cetta and I are available to answer any questions you may have about the work.




The Library is at Address121 Station St, Fairfield VIC 3078

Other things happening with my art

I have entered an abstract artwork that I have called From Collingwood to Fitzroy and Back in the Brunswick Street Gallery Small Works exhibition.  I’ll post a picture when the exhibition opens.

I have two abstract paintings in the Linden Postcard exhibition.  This year they have made the works a much bigger size than the postcard description.  I’ll post images when it opens.

I have several works going into a beautiful boutique in Korumburra soon.  It is called Small Forest if you happen to be out and about the area you should pop in for sure.

I’ll keep posting more pictures of the work when the exhibitions commence.

PS the unique metal and marble flying fish/bird is Cetta Pilati’s work.  www.cetta-pilati.com.au




Melbourne Collage Meets are having a Fundraiser

Melbourne Collage Meets are having a Fundraiser

We are a group of artists that meet fortnightly to make collage art and just chat about all kinds of things.

We have been meeting for more than a year and we have had one fundraiser for an underprivileged school and now we are having an art card sale with money going to Araluen, a place where disabled residents will use the funds to help with making ceramics.

As we meet at a coffee shop, some members meet early for breakfast, others stay back for lunch and everyone supports the shop by buying a coffee and a cake.  We so love meeting and that’s why I am available to help if any one out there thinks they would like to do this in their area.  It needs to be for people that are artists, that have art of some sort of art in their lives. Contact me if you want to chat.  By the way our group is full even though I would love to keep having more people – it would not be fair to the shop.  Hope you like the idea.

Thank you to all that made it to the Alphington Studios

Thank you to all that made it to the Alphington Studios

It’s been a few years since I have been able to participate so it was wonderful to see some of you that I have known and some newbies made it to this event. Thank you for the feedback and for liking and or collecting my work for yourselves. I was really keen to hear what you thought of the block assemblages and was especially pleased when some sold. As you all know I like working with so many different mediums and was pleased that I sold assemblages, collages, paintings and my lockdown project which was linocuts. Linocut was difficult because I was pressing them by hand on gorgeous paper. My success rate was one good print for every eight. I might just look into a small small press of some sort. My linocut sales (thankyou) paid for my paper and ink (whew).

I have had plenty of people sign up for summer workshop in block assemblage and a few others wanting general art classes in various mediums. I will be in touch early January.

Saturday I picked up two books from a Garage sale and made this little collage. Just know I check on line to make sure the books are not rare or special. These were just special to me and hopefully you see what I make with them as a little special.

Love dogs, bits and pieces collected from op shops, social network etc.

Have a fabulous Christmas xx

The dog on the Tuckerbox. Anyone remember him and remember where he was situated?

Always looking for old dolls furniture if anyone has some to pass on.
