Welcome to my online Journal where i hope to share my thoughts, feeling, inspirations, processes, problem solving, and completed works as well as works in progress.
London Gallery visit, these pieces by jessica Warboys made my hairs stand on end!!! Go to Frith street gallery soho to see them now!!!!
Jessica Warboys’ huge Sea Paintings are made below the high water line at the sea's edge. After immersion, the sodden canvases are pulled from the sea and laid out on the beach. Mineral pigments are thrown directly onto the sea beaten fabric; its folds and creases catching the grains of color. The process is then repeated with the canvas returning to the sea or being left to dry on the beach. The sea, wind, and sand along with the pigment and the artist’s hand create forms through the movement of color. The place and date of making is given in each work’s title, emphasizing the mirroring of location and time. As a landscape painter these works really amazed and inspired me, the fact that the landscape itself made the work and not the other way round was a revelation to me,
