This is one where I’m beginning in the middle. I’ll catch you up on the beginning next, but let’s start off here, just coz I feel like it.
Thoughtforms are a series of relief collages I’m making from the dyed paper (way back… remember the dyed paper?)
and the don’t-know-why-but-compelled-to-keep-making-them funny little colored rectangle things.
So these loose ends are also finding each other and forming into slightly more coherent entities.
Thoughtforms are continuing that recurring theme: trains of consciousness & patterns of thought. More on that later.
I’ve made 6 of a series that will total 9, 3 are still in progress. These 6 are on display (and for sale – if you’re quick before they get snapped up!) at the Upstairs Gallery
Each one is named after a fragment of text found somewhere in the piece, serendipity giving them eclectic names such as: Spacecraft, Puddings cakes etc, Fortitude and Adversity amongst others.
The next series will include more textile elements, but the overall feel will be similar.
Still with that one theme leads to another, one thought folds round a corner and opens out into a coiled up spring, some buttons and a rivet, stitched onto the overarching idea of something else.
Or something. Y’know, like it does. The beauty is they can represent whatever you want them to. Or nothing at all if you .
