February 14th, 2013

I love the way the bones of my garden are exposed in winter. The beauty of the paths branches and shrubs are highlighted in the cool winter light. Walking down the path to my studio in January felt daunting. I had not worked in the studio for several months and I had no idea where I would go next.

Then I remembered that I always wanted to play around with the idea of Dutch Tulip vases.

Tulipiere by Susannah Lints

While fairly uncommon in modernity, during the 17th century tulipieres were common pieces of decorative art that could often be found in the houses of European elites After the advent of large-scale global trade in the 17th century, numerous flowers from Asia such as the tulip, crocus and hyacinth became luxury items in Europe and these cut flowers remained an exotic novelty until the end of the 17th century.

I had so much fun making these, a little like decorating a cake. I will be previewing some of these along with some bud vases at the upcoming show at the Shop at OCAC 2/21-3/31. Details in my upcoming events.

Subtractive Exploration and Textural Additions: Visual Obsessions Workshop, Day 2

July 24th, 2012

Visual Obsession, Pivotal Moments and the Passage of Time, Workshop Day 2

Thursday began with a discussion about altering an existing book. the idea is to scratch for ideas and respond to words phrases or images in an existing book . The process involves editing with gesso allowing us to focus on a single word or phrase, and to add our own ideas to the “sketchbook” The beauty of this exercise is that you never have to face the dreaded blank page.

I had to overcome my reticence to mark in a printed book. I was taught never mark or color in any book.

Possible actions are; scratching for ideas,gluing stuff in, conceal/reveal,gesso

 

Thursday afternoon

Andrea began a demonstration of creating grounds by putting acrylic paint on wet Bristol paper. We explored using brushes and other tools such as grout spreaders to give different visual texture.

Tools: Bristol paper, matt medium, foam brush, acrylic paint in at least 2 colors,water.

Thursday afternoon came and it was time to go. Already, we had 3 element we had created; the small process paintings with lines and circles, the altered book, and the large acrylic grounds.I had no idea where we might be going with this exercise or how it might relate to what we did yesterday. I was intrigued and it got me thinking about these elements and how they might all relate. Couldn’t wait for day 3.
