January & February
OK, so Laurie inspired me to go out into the FREEZING cold this AM & photograph these!
I finished January & February because Karen from Indie Arts came over the other day to interview me for her DVD magazine. I really wanted to plug our little group & have something to show her. As it turned out, I talked about our group, but not as much as I wanted to & I didn't mention any of your names. I had an incredibly difficult time remembering my OWN name & I was afraid that I would leave someone out, so I said nothing! I'm so sorry about that, I need to ask her if we can have some kind of link to this blog at least, since the issue will be coming out in July & that would be a perfect time to get people excited about our show.
That's if she even uses the footage, it was a terrifying experience for me & I pretty much froze once she got the camera out. She says that she can edit it to make me look "brilliant", I guess I trust her, even though I really can't imagine how anyone could possibly make anything work out of that interview! I was a little bit nervous, but I had no idea that I would freeze up & go completely blank! She was really wonderful to work with though, she has the patience of a saint & once the interview was over, we had the BEST time running around town & trying on hats in the freezing cold! It made it all worth it in the end.
Anyway, this image keeps coming up for me, of a single female figure holding circles or balls, with circles all around her, so I decided to milk it & work with only that image for this project, but incorporating the different themes. I'm going to call my body of work "the 8 faces of joy" since the theme of joy is something that I want to explore more in depth.
I'm also working with this image/figure in my other group, only I'm using clay & carving the figure into it.
