Having a lot of fun in the studio at the moment. Apparently I can't get away from that lollipop pink - as I call it. Not sure why - but I've learned to just go with the flow :)
Since I just finished three paintings - I did of course start some new paintings right away.
I've started three more paintings - not on frames - as these are intended to be rolled up and sent off to my dealer gallery in Denmark once they are finished.
These are the first of many layers and as you know they'll end up looking very different from what you see right now. (And it's still scary to show these first layers.... :) In stead of doing three similar paintings in colours, like I did last time, I've decided to make three very different coloured paintings this time. But.. that could all change as I get further along - but at least the base is there...
Finally back after a lovely, but cold, trip. (You can see some photos from the trip under 'Inspiration')
Managed to get the two rolled-up paintings all the way to Copenhagen and then I sent them off from there to the gallery - and they have arrived safely.
And in London I bought the Acrylic Paint Markers which I've used for these three - now finished - paintings :D
Don't know why I've never come across this artist before - especially since I researched fibre artists during my MFA... She calls herself a textile artist - and her work is amazing. She talks about her work in such a simple and easy to understand way - which is unusual for many artists...
This clip is from an exhibition in the Netherlands - therefore the subtitles - but she speaks very plain English and it definitely worth watching - I think :D
I think I have a new favourite artist for this week!
Here's a link to a great site with lots of information about Sheila Hicks - absolutely facinating: Artsy
