India Flint uses ecologically sustainable contact printing methods to color paper, bone, stone and cloth – working with leaves, flowers, bark, water, minerals, the discarded artefacts and hard detritus of human inhabitation and the local weed burden.
She stitches and dyes dresses, wallworks and sometimes costumes for dance. Her work has been described as using the earth as the printing plate and time as the press, conflating the visual and written poetics of place and memory; immersing herself in and paying deep attention to the environment, gathering thought and experience, imagery and marks.
The work of each day literally begins with a walk.
fieldnotes is a collection of works that map wanderings, note memories and record experiences of place.
India Flint (b. 1958 Melbourne, Australia) holds a Master of Visual Arts from University of South Australia. Her work has been shown in exhibitions, performances, and permanent collections worldwide. Flint’s previous excursions to New Orleans include an exhibition, ‘muddy waters’ at NOCCA’s Riverview gallery in 2012 and a visit and artist talk at the Joan Mitchell Center in 2013.
