Moving On

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Allegro is done. I am thinking about entering it into the SAQA show, Beyond Comfort.

This exhibit challenges each artist to venture into uncharted territories of creative expression by turning away from the comfort zones of their established body of work. It provides a “permission slip” to experiment fearlessly with radically new conceptual and narrative agendas; to employ techniques, technologies, or materials new to the artist. The artistic goal of the exhibition is to encourage reaching beyond comfort to make new and unexpected works of art.

I think it meets the criteria, but I am not sure it is visually compelling enough to make the cut.

Here is a detail. I love the painted surfaces of these little pieces of organza.

Fall arrivesĀ  Wednesday night at 8:59 pm and here is my fiber sketch – an homage to fall.

The rusted white piece of silk that I dyed turquoise is now getting rusted again. Now that Allegro is done, I am looking forward to moving on to something new. First, I have to do that clean-up that comes when you finish a project. We are having some nice weather so I hope I can do some messy work outside.
