These are both details from a streaming piece called “Building a Center”. I’ve decided to make enough pieces for a show in the Pig Barn Gallery. I’m not sure when it will be, it depends on how long it takes me to make them, but I’m thinking sometime in the spring or early summer. I have 2 other shows planned first, a Functional Art Show, Columbus Day weekend and a show dealing with the stranger side of familiar stories in the Spring.
My streaming pieces are an effort to pull from my subconscious, to try and tap into a hidden part of me and allow it to come organically. I often start these pieces with a figure, then allow the words and images to come. I really have to get out of the way for this to happen, and I suspect with practice it will come easier and, or be more genuine. Straight from the source to the fabric without my interference.
Many people have encouraged me to do more of these pieces, but it was Mary Muncil who gave me the idea to do a show. We have plans for Mary participating in the exhibit, although we haven’t figured out the detail yet.
I have no doubt it will all come together when the time is right.
