I cannot come up with a catchy title today- another week marked in the studio - new things happening -
or as my mentor says, "percolating". I am immersed in some written work and thought about content and meaning. Pre-thesis work and it is bringing up some new and further thoughts for the work.
The piece above is collaged over that pink construction foam - I've been making these shapes and chunky tablets and using those as the base for the collage work. It's like a big paper mache' project - brings me back to all the work I've done teaching art to children. This piece is exploring marks made with sumi ink - and then cut and laid over the newspaper. The general feel and look is intriguing to me - the ink smears just a bit, everything becomes a little blurry. I'm moving back towards the long banners today and placing a second layer over those.
