My artwork has meandered through felt, paint, fabric, beads and during the summer - trying to find what medium I could settle on - very unsettling. Maybe it was creative block - or too much creativity.
Here I am in late January and what have I settled on? Well, I don't believe I'll ever be "settled" - emotionally or physically. I have Fibromyalgia and Myofascial Pain Syndrome plus a bum hip. Having these conditions - which fluctuate in their manifestations - to a large degree influence my "states". Restlessness and pain have a way of interrupting my flow.
But with this restlessness comes a yearning for relief and ease which leads to "search" and "experimentation". Art is a never ending juxtaposition of quandries and certainties.
Here, here is where I currently am:
|Felt and tea bags and tea on canvas|
|recycled pieces of fabric stitched, felted and embellished with beads|
|"Lydia" acrylic, fabric on canvas - here she is almost finished.|
