A stubborn one

This pairing of text and photo has become a bit of an obsession to me. I so desperately want to turn them into an exceptional piece of work that it’s become infuriatingly difficult to decide what to do with them. I’ve finally turned the photo&text duo into a trio by adding the old book cover you see above for a background of sorts, but the surrounding space is still a complete mystery to me, and I feel this piece needs a lot of space. Having space that has a purpose is surprisingly difficult: I want to avoid boring, and I want to avoid busy; I want to add to the feeling this core I already have has, not distract from it…

Weavings

mixed media assemblage – vintage letter and envelope, vintage photo, vintage text cut-ups, vintage artificial silk thread, freshwater pearls, paper, board, glue
30,6×24,8×2,5cm  /  12″x9.8″x1″
The silken weavings of our afternoons,
sense without sense of time
we are where we began.
The grayest of all gray days here today. No sign of silken weavings or cuddles in a hammock. Lots of cooking, though. And naps.
