Method Behind the Madness

when KFW awarded me this grant, they pointed out i did not explain how i made the art i submitted, or the date my pieces were made.

i think anyone whos had some instruction would know this is an important aspect! now i know. anyway, i wanted to show how i make my collages. last night i came across an image online which inspired me–

marble head from figure of a woman
Marble head from the figure of a woman | 2700–2500 B.C. | Cycladic, posted by Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

using just this photograph, i went on the computer program Paint, and used my mouse to cut and paste in order to make this collage.

Young Bull Bree 12.20.15

there are goddesses associated with the bull, like Pasiphae and Selene. perhaps this was in my subconscious. i am not sure why the bull came to mind when i saw the beautiful stone sculpture. i make what i make without forethought, by sitting down with a blank mind.

Bree: do well of must– a Book Art Show Blog Project

i have been awarded an Artist Enrichment Grant from The Kentucky Foundation for Women. this blog is part of my project, so follow along.

here is my project:
–make a book Bree: do well of must which showcases my progress as a self-taught visual artist.
–create a body of work on canvas.
–solicit bookstores and libraries to display my book, along with an original work for one Friday-Saturday. (some pieces will be nude studies or erotic art).
–blog the process here, as a way to gauge how receptive the public is to public display of nude studies or erotic art by a female artist.

see a list of grantees and their projects here.
