2 days to go … whoohooo

I travel to Bali on saturday for my daughter’s wedding … so exciting …  7 days of heat and photography, catching up with family and friends and whatever adventures await.

In 2007 when i travelled to Switzerland to spend time with my daughter and my future son-in-law I did a foundart series where i created small original collages and lost them along the way … see the series here >>>

For this trip the collages are larger, postcard size and i plan to create another foundart series2.  Keep a watch on this space. <<< for the Bali foundart series. As Always, do let me know what you think .

i shall begin with how the pieces began and keep up to date with losing the series and photographing in situ and hopefully i will have a few stories to tell as the series unfolds.   >>> Gina

art .. collage … playtime !

having got together a portfolio of photos to send out to the next competition, tis time  for art again … i started throwing paint around, spray painting colour and just enjoying the freedom of the medium …

here are the initial stages to forthcoming collages …





currently steeped in the form … i go to ‘read’ the art of others … and the work of Janet Jones is where i go often … there is a beautiful sophisticated sensibility in her works that i love ….

i, on the other hand have been struggling the last few days


every now and again … something comes forth …

art comes unbidden – but

you do need to hunker down and do it when the time is right …. again, i must qualify that – the time is right when your mind is in the zone ..but you cant get there until everything aligns – ideas, raw materials, space and time  …   spread it all out and do it – for hours, or in this case days …

below, the process unfurls – first the papers in 1sta nd 2nd or third stages ….  then further stages which are lost in the layering of time and intent (that is lost and found) … then a little light and one or two (or three possibilities) …  (pics have been posted very quickly with rough matting to block out extraneous matter) .. final artworks when complete will be posted to the fynearts site.
