Time Thighs and Self Lit in Pink have been published in ‘Artist Portfolio Magazine’!
Venturing into something new and unknown is daunting. I love creating art, but I still get pulled down by the nagging voice telling me I’m not good enough and I’ll never get anywhere with it.
So thank you Artist Portfolio Magazine for the nudge in the right direction.
Artist Portfolio Magazine is a bimonthly independent art magazine that features emerging and established artists from around the world. It has an open art submission process, which is free (kudos), and considers all mediums.
I am honoured and grateful to be featured, and pretty happy too 🙂
Another awesome lampshade. ‘I’m kind of in love with this one, it’s so pretty. I may have to use it again.
The processing turned out slightly different on this image. I love the depth of shadow under the lampshade and through the back and how it contrasts with the flatness of the chest of drawers.
Conceptually, I’m exploring the meeting of functionality between forms: the living and once was living; the static and supposedly animated – although not in this series! The materials these objects were made from were all once parts of living things. Now de-animated for our functional consumption and aesthetic requirements.
How quickly we travel through life. Always running to get somewhere. Only to reach the end and realise that it was the journey, and not the destination, which was important.
This image is the beginning of a new series. A journey into surrealism: combining my love of form and texture, and interesting furniture. The legs and chest of drawers belong to me. The vase is my mum’s. The clock is courtesy of unsplash.com
