It’s a time of transition for me. Mixed Media for Textiles is in the wrap up stage. I don’t want to rush choices about medium term goals. In the interim I’ve decided to experiment with a life of following different strands, going to what interests me most at any time. However I like structure and want to hold myself to account. A weekly review of where I am, what I’ve been doing, feels a good discipline. It might make for boring blog posts, but it (potentially) suits my needs – so feel free to move on 🙂
Paper yarn project.
This idea comes from Ruth Hadlow’s workshop – trying an exercise for a month (25-Feb-2016). My brief to myself:
* use a piece of paper that comes to hand during the day;
* make yarn and incorporate into coiling;
* record – photograph, paper type.
No idea where if anywhere this will take me. The first two days were a simple flat round, with a little shaping beginning on day 3.
Lectures, exhibitions, performances
Multiple books on the go, depending on where I am.
Plus looking rather than reading – a new acquisition, on sale at MCA bookstore but still an indulgence –
Petzinger, R. and Rosen, B. (2006) EVA HESSE: CATALOGUE RAISONNE New Haven and London: Yale University Press
This is in two volumes, one painting, one sculpture. Very exciting to leaf through, watching development over time, the explorations with particular materials…
Limited. Some bits and pieces related to Mixed Media for Textiles, so I’ll do a separate post on that.
It’s taken longer than I expected to write this up. Now I have a framework, it should go more easily once I settle into a rhythm. Most weeks aren’t so active.
