They are a 3 dimensional work of art that is very often specific to a particular site. They are designed to change or transform ones perception of the space.
My butterflies were made for a particular exhibition. Now they are home,were do I hang them?! Ive chosen to hang them outside, subject to the weather & enjoy them for as long as they last. As butterflies in their natural habit are outside subject to the elements.
I love reading the newspaper in bed on the weekends, then cutting out pieces and creating a collage from the paper. I like to rearrange the words & pictures to create my own “story”.
Last weekend I took a old picture & a pin board. I up- cycled them into this.
Things I’ve worked on this past week……….
Below is a photo of pieces of pottery along side old wire, metal etc.
I’m wanting to make some sculptured pieces incorporating beads, pottery and old bits of metal etc. I will look at this stuff, move things around until I “find” some things that are working well together. Then I will begin making the some sculptures!
I been busy this month, with family and work. I’ve also been trying to settle down and prepare for an up and coming art exhibition! This next six weeks I’ve got to focus on my art work and leave other stuff aside!
I was at a girl friends place recently and her daughter was making some lanterns from coloured paper to hang . I was inspired so I went home and made some from old used envelopes. Funny I actually showed this young girl how to make lanterns when she was 4-5, and now she's inspiring me!
The circle of life!
