...for a new piece, the kind of piece I rarely do: a statement piece. By my calculations, it will take just under 3 years. It will be marks on mostly whole-cloth, I think, and it could be quite large. I've a starting date just over 2 months away, so time to plan fabric, threads, colours. It will be done largely by hand, inspired by the mark-making of Judith Martin. And her time-keeping. And the time-keeping of my SAQA colleague, Margie Davidson. Thanks to their work, I think I have found a way to make a statement with light and beauty. We shall see.
Working title: Mark on the Body.
Margaret, This is such an wonderful inspiring idea. I wish you all the best in its journey and in the mystery of the results. I have longed to do something that requires the discipline and contemplative core of such a project.
I didn't know Margie Davidson's work, so I thank you for bringing her to my attention. Judith Martin... I love!
Love Judy Martin's work and can't wait to see what you do. Love the idea of marking one's journey.
you go, you start, you keep going
Good luck. I'm not a math person - I prefer words.
However, your words have given me inspiration and an idea. Thanks.
OOO...looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
This sounds very interesting! Looking forward to following your progress!
I will look forward to your blogs!
