inspired by dust: hannah bertram…
Posted in artists, australia September 15th, 2010 by pia

Australian artist Hannah Bertram makes incredible, impermanent art installations with dust. She collects her material on site, then uses it to create these intimate, intricate artworks on various surfaces. Read about her latest project, the silence of becoming and disappearing on her website, and be sure to click on each of the installation links to see her process and creations. The project is also apparently featured in a 3 page article in the current (Sept/Oct) edition of Vogue Living.

    Love the bird painting on the stones. The birds on the next image look amazing as well!

    Again beautiful work, transient and ethereal and odd that you have posted this ‘dust’ today as I just previous to my viit chez vous posted a digital collage called dust…

    Oh wow! That is beautiful… Such detail and layering, she reminds me of Linda Florence’s wallpapers. There is an incredible amount of talent out there, thank god for blogging, or we’d miss a lot of it!

    Is there anything more ephemeral than dust? This work is delicate and beautiful. Really lovely.

    That is so beautiful. Particularly love the table shot. What a gorgeous space. Rather than sweeping it away she’s used it so creatively. Amazing. Pruxxx

    i wonder if she could do something at my place? there should be enough material for at least a small area rug (been a bit busy lately). no, seriously, this really is strangely wonderful. that ‘carpet’ – and the bird in the photo before… i like the idea of taking something that’s considered worthless and turn it into something beautiful. this really feels like a homage to the past!
