Starting this Friday, here’s the first of two workshops I’ll be teaching at the Valley Print Studio over the next two months.
Watching viewers’ reactions to art can be just as engaging as art itself. I can’t help but be amused at the face this visitor is making as she looks at my monotype, “Catharsis.” Maybe it’s just me but doesn’t it seem like she’s making a face back at the one in the print?
She was actually one of my favorite visitors at the pop-up show demo on Saturday because she had all these questions to ask about the ink, thus giving me permission to nerd out out loud a bit. Love an engaged audience.
A quick word vomit about all the geometric abstractions you’ve been seeing from me over the past year: These linear designs have come to represent the birth and development of ideas - the way thought processes begin with a single observation, notion, or piece of information and then and expand in unlimited directions, at random and at different speeds, and yet are still re-traceable back to the original idea that spawned the resulting web of sprawling imaginings.
Conceptual ramblings over. Thanks for scrolling through.
