collage art diet 2016 – week 35

Happy long weekend everyone. I am quite happy with the set for this week as I got to spend longer time on time. I found very interesting patterns and shapes that called for very subtle drawings. As you know I can’t ever get enough of black & white.

collage art diet 2016 – week 34

The set for last week’s challenge are all lacy cut-outs. I felt like I messed them up but I had to post them anyways. I keep tellin you about my recurring itch to shake things up a bit. But it has been an insane summer and coming up with new ideas and keeping up with the imposed weekly challenge was challenging!  I think I told you that I was working on the 55th edition of Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition . So my excuse had been that I have been surrounded by fabulous art and not much time left to focus on my own. I have been meaning to write a post on my favourite works from the show but I never got to it. In September I will have enough time to show you the pieces I acquired for my very first art collection.

And by the way, I have a show coming up at Propeller Gallery with my all time favourite fiber artist Helen Liene Dreifelds. September 19 – 25, 2016. More details in the next post! I am super excited!

collage art diet 2016 – week 27

My three pieces from last week are delayed. As some of you know I was insanely busy with putting together the 55th Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition with a fantastic team. I am very inspired by the great art I saw there and looking forward to take my time at the studio and go back into my own creative process. These pieces are yet again simple cut-outs subtly enhanced by minimal drawings.

I couldn’t capture the subtle green colour of these pieces in the photographs. They are quite gentle, simple and charismatic in person – these qualities didn’t translate either. All I want to say is that I am happy with how they turned out and really their energy.
