‘Caroline Ross sources art materials from a world that ended a thousand years ago’ – Dark Mountain 11.
Dark Mountain 13 is out this week, and I have painted the cover. Have a look here for a short essay and great pictures of the great rocks on which I worked.
News: I am excited to say that I will be co-teaching Wild Twins in May 2018 with Paul Kingsnorth, a week for rewilding your art and / or your writing on this island on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland. We’ll be making everything we need from scratch- inks, books, paints, pens, and responding to each other, to nature and to ancient stories. Click the link to find out more about dates, prices, and the venue Sherkin North Shore. There’s a flyer here on the blog, please feel free to share it on social media or with your friends.
10 of my new small works made in natural pigments on deerskin parchment illustrate the new Dark Mountain 12 – Sanctum. I have just been commissioned to paint the cover of issue 13, and will be creating this with hand-dug and refined raw pigments from Clearwell Caves and oak gall ink, on birch bark.
‘The Illustrated Wake’ with my drawings for Paul Kingsnorth’s superb book is now available for crowdfunding at Unbound.com. Please have a look at the film we have made that tells you about the project and the materials.
