musings on art, walks with the dog, life as it happens, in the slow lane
yes. This One. am still lookingto know why it is so pleasing tome...maybe...well...no, still looking.Thank you for putting it here...
The printing, dying...many moons...love this. I see the season of spooky all wrapped up in this one!
i like the layering...like layersof Understanding about How StuffWorksand i like that the dark imageshave taken the central space, asif they are some "code" becomevisible for a short time...only.
goodevening Grace and Nancy, it's really nice reading your comments, for me they make the piece more accesible, as if I had only understood a very small part of it; your words reveal new layers of meaningI suddenly get the feeling that evreything I make is an attempt at making sense of a life, my lifemaybe the attempt is without answers, futile even, but the trying keeps me going, so I guess I will be making more in the forseeable future
the fact that you say "maybe these efforts are futile" shows a quality of inquiry I admire, but I want to shout "NO!" These things you make are wonderful, whether or not you or I or anyone can speak the reasons why.This one puts me in mind of Jude's idea about constructing landscapes in three or four disconnected horizontal chunks (even though yours are connected)... an idea that I have not consciously explored yet, but has been tickling my thoughts.
hello Dee, okay so not futile and for me they aren't, for me it's all about discovering truths....it sounds big and maybe that's why I say futile, trying not to sound pretentious; and what you say about how horizontal chunks create a landscape, it is the way our eye/brain works isn't it, always trying to make sense of what we 'see', labeling it until a better explanation comes along....do you remember where Jude said this so I can go there as well??
saskia--i've been away for a while--and come back to be totally thrilled and amazed with the direction of your work. it's really exciting me. yesterday i used pennies for the first time with a can wrap. now i'm looking at your orbs and really resonating. love that you have a press to experiment with--wondering about the green color? dye? thanks for all of this inspiration.
hi Patricia, you're welcome;-)the green's not a dye, but a commercial textile paint I still had; the arrival of the Press has brought countless possibilities, I'm dyeing the fabrics with the home-made dyes and printing straight onto them with both the home-made dyes and commercial textile paints, the range is far greater than I -for the moment- am able to create
