Or, how I am now planning to add another piece to this (as yet untitled) group for the Golden Textures exhibition. My submission proposal did mention 4-6 pieces. For several reasons, including (a) a remark by visiting textile artist Regina Benson last week about ‘an odd number’ and (2) that although I had set a date for photography friday last with time to spare before my friend Suzie takes them with her to Australia later this month, I found I did need to postpone it, after all. And as Eduardo won’t be back in his studio till 10th Dcember that gave me time to seriously consider adding a fifth piece.
So a couple of days ago I fiddled with a couple more sand ripple photos, chose one, cut a stencil and sprayed it, final dimensions not yet determined. Yes, I know its crooked – I just quickly popped it up to confirm the effect – and gave myself a green light to go ahead. Gold stitchery and quilting start his morning.
And, I now know I will need to be particular about the exact order in which the four are to be hung, because this placement isn’t ‘it’ . A friend who has already seen this photo commented how the designs make her think of bones / skeletons. It had occurred to me, too – and I am now thinking of the title with some possible inference….. but despite a few things swirling round up top, I haven’t started my usual list yet.
