Degas for a Day/ Degas for a Night

Sandy - Wed, 11/28/2012 - 2:54pm

I was so inspired with my little traveling press, I will be doing more workshops in the next few months. At the BIL, I introduced a few new friends and locals to printmaking along with other artists who were interested in finding out more about this inspiring art form!  It was a fun night filled with friends, laughter and wine...not to mention wonderful art that was created!

Degas for a night!

Sandy - Wed, 11/14/2012 - 3:27pm

I am so excited to introduce a night of printmaking at the Old Franklin Schoolhouse in Metuchen, NJ known as the BIL. After the successful opening of Transformations, I was asked to exhibit a few pieces for the space and will be the featured artist this month. Degas for a night, is an interactive workshop to introduce the fine art of monotypes and collagraphs...

I have now been recharged, reinvigorated and revitalized...All after a wonderful 6 country trek over in Europe! Although never long enough, I did manage to see some highlights from the past... enjoyed the museum and visited my new FAVORITE...the Quai Branley in Paris.  www.quaibranly.fr/en/

Scribble journaling....

Taking an impression and simplifying the gesture/language....communicating at the lowest common denominator....

Deliberate marks are evolving... I am attempting to  surrender the "process" and hoping to "scribble while journaling".  I equate this  to walking out my door "not fully dressed".  Putting "just" a big toe over the threshold, I  feel more exposed and vulnerable...

Evolving gestures and language

admin - Sun, 07/01/2012 - 10:30am

So the way I view things is that language is a series of marks and color.  When trying to "communicate", breaking down the message is usually easiest for conveying complex ideas.  If another responds to something in this translation process, whether it is to the color, texture, mood, or symbolism, then the work is successful.
