It’s cold outside! The art studio (former garage) has no heat, but before I closed the door on it until springtime I had some pieces to finish. A group show was in the wings, and so I had to kick these babies out of the nest. (Did I mention I am part magpie?) Here is some of the “before”:
And the final results (plus 8 more), which are in a group show entitled Family, at the Mad Dooley Gallery here in Beacon. Featured in the Po-Jo (Poughkeepsie Journal)’s “What Inspires Me” column.
And over in Paris, some slightly older pieces from my Illumination series are currently featured on the e-zine Beguile.
So, on the shortest month of the year, a little “show-and-tell” between the shivers!
The old wood in a white wood box frame has found a good home. This makes me remember old photo print sleeves and their kitchy art, and think about the next goody bag to send. Also, I think you must add heat to the artspace, winter takes too long.
As always, I love your collages … and you’re made of sturdy stuff to be out in the studio if the cold is anything like what we’ve had around these parts lately.
The assemblage art is wonderful. Thanks for sharing the link to the column you wrote for the newspaper. I enjoyed the additional contextual information.
