A studio blog that revolves around the concepts, influences and desires behind the creation of my art
love these shots of you, they arent posed so no chance of closed eyes. and besides, youre so fierce.
Congratulations! Your work is very impressive and has a powerful statement. I always liked the term "bite" as it refers to printmaking. For printmaking through the ages has at times taken a great big "bite' out of social injustices. I knew your Aunt Phyllis during her Peace Corps years in Brazil. (I've recently been corresponding with your father about her.) After Peace Corps, I taught art in public schools and community colleges for 30 years before I retired. Now I am doing mostly digital art. I love "playing" with the possibilities and variations that can be achieved with the computer. At first I was scanning images I had created with drawing and painting media, then enhancing and changing them. Later, I started to create images directly on the computer. Now I've come full-circle ---I am "sketching" on the computer and plan to create paintings from those digital ideas. Your father sent a link about your exhibit, which eventually led me to your blog.
Thank you CJ! what a small world, eh? On my dad's side, Phyllis was the only one with some artistic ability or want....i believe i take after her a bit. I enjoyed the printmaking (just finished last night) because it is so hands on and physical. I can take a lot out on my work, i guess.thanks for the comment! i appreciate you stopping by.best, Shana
