Hot Rockface is one of a series of works using papier mâché, it references a close-up exploration of a weathered rockface in The Kimberley. The rocks in the Chamberlain Gorge are pitted and eroded, and stained with oxides that are carried down the rock surface by rain. I have used pigments mixed with sand and acrylic medium over the surface of the papier mâché, this enables the surface to reflect light as with sunlight on a rock face. Kate Briscoe has had over forty solo exhibitions both in Australia and overseas, and has been involved in many solo shows and art fairs. She recently exhibited at Art Central Hong Kong and Sydney Contemporary. Her work is in many collections both domestic and international. Recent works are focussed on close observations of landscape, especially rock faces in The Kimberley and at Depot Beach in NSW. Surface textures and colours have been a consistent focus of her work.
