" The quiter you become, the more you are able to hear - Rumi
I am so looking forward to it! My “four” have arrived safely and undamaged at their destination. There they will be exhibited from November 25th to December 7th in the "Little Treasures" exhibition of Trevisan International Art, Bologna.
On Saturday, November 25th, 2017 I will leave for Bologna to be present at opening night and to meet the other artists from 40 different countries who also take part. That is awesome!
I can’t wait to reveal my "four" to you! While my first layers always focus on movement and give me a lot of direction in line and composition, it is the colors and shapes that come to life during the process and tell the actual story.
Early on I knew what my colors would be in this work. Fixed was a warm - cold contrast, of teal and warm orange/red. And a visual language that I would describe best as a drop/balloon-like shape. This form connects me with what I would best describe as a collective of thoughts, feelings, perhaps desires of people.
The pictures show the process how I play with color and shape in a loose way after my first layers of movement. And while I'm working on it, I think that every layer has its beauty and tries to convince you not to start a new layer. But inside you know when you have to continue when there is more. And that the process continues, even though there are sometimes days of pause in between to only observe and absorb.
I will write about the effect of this pause in my next blog with the final result of which I already reveal that the title of this series bears: "People".
To be continued…
