Sketches in Paper
- Winsome Jobling

Darwin based artist Winsome Jobling works primarily with handmade paper and experimental printmaking as well as sculpture and drawing. She uses many local plants to make her paper such as Spear Grass, Banyan Fig and the declared weed Gamba Grass. Her work is a haptic collaboration with the natural world and a response to our impact on it. 

“It is March as I write this, near the end of the wet. Spear grass stands two metres high topped with tangles of brown seeds, waiting to be knocked-down into the wet earth by the final monsoon storms. The bush is lush and strangely quiet. Plants are concentrating their energy into growth up or down – future proofing for the long dry. This is the time to collect plants for papermaking. 

The works in this exhibition were begun last dry after two meagre wet seasons. Our simplistic European view is of two seasons: the Wet and the Dry – rain and no rain. The nuanced six-season calendar recognised by Aboriginal people, links events in the natural world to a cycle that predicts seasonal changes and recognises the interconnectedness of all things.
