Ian Pascoe’s love of local flora and fauna is reflected in his drawings and watercolours of waterbirds and honeyeaters. It was reignited after his move to Philip Island. The artist works mostly in Indian ink with freshly gathered and made reed pens. The reed pen is a relatively blunt instrument, each pen having its own unique characteristics and unpredictable behaviour. This has the advantage of allowing the artist to choose the pen that best suits his purpose, although it is rare for a reed pen to last more than one or two drawings without wearing out.
The exhibition is current until August 29. View the exhibition online at http://www.quadrantgallery.com.au/ian-pascoe.html
