2012 Art Calendar
I put together some small calendars for 2012 with 13 images of my artwork. The pages measure 5.5" wide by 8.5" high with a 4"-square image on each page. I took some to the Galesburg Civic Art Center and the Buchanan Center for the Arts to sell in their gift shops. I also have some extras, so let me know if you'd like an $18 calendar for you or a for a gift!
Ever since a trip to western Montana in May, 2009, my artwork has had photography as its base. At first, I made several digitally altered variations of my photos (giving the images a painterly, sketchy or scratched look) and tore or cut the prints into rectangles to layer up imagery. Then one day I had the idea of running my prints through a paper shredder and building up the scene in those narrow strips of paper. I now cut the strips by hand, allowing me to vary the width and to keep the imagery organized. Sometimes I add in pieces of handmade papers, topographical maps, or fragments from old ledger books to further abstract the scene. I’m moving from a photographic documentation of a place at a particular time, to an impression of a place that is timeless ... more of a memory or a feeling of the space.
