Thanks so much Todd! I look forward to being more active here on the site and getting to know everyone's work and exchanging ideas and feedback. Appreciate the kind words.
thanks to your Blog!
No digital imaging. These pieces are very hard to photograph. There are three layers that you "see" as you look at the piece. I used paper, a transparency of the girl and a piece of mica.
I do, Todd, if you click on the photo you will see the title for each.
Todd, I'm very inspired by your work which I've now had some time to explore...the relationship with nature, and the commitment to collage and assemblage (which is nature itself) and also the ultimate recycler..something you recognized as your calling early in your career. You've given me inspiration, and confidence. LS
See if this comes through. If not, put I Shock Myself in a search engine...you'll also find lots of images. LS
Love the reference to Duchamp...In my former life edited the autobio of ceramicist Beatrice Wood, I Shock Myself. She was one of his lovers, and her work was influenced by him...in fact, she had a piece at the 1912 NY Armory Show (which is getting some recent attention). Duchamp was the first to bring pure function into the definition of art... LS
Thanks Todd. Yes, modularity is a form of collage. Thanks for seeing that! LS
Thank you for going above and beyond as a curator, artist and teacher, not only going through the rigors of the selection process, but then putting together a book of "Strange Glue", and even a virtual exhibition of those who didn't make the physical space, http://thompsongallery.blog.com/image-gallery-strange-glue-virtual-exhibition-3/
Your energy must be boundless!
Great! I'm looking forward to it.
