First I want to thank all the kind people, who left a comment on last PPF's blogpost. The encouragement that I received was overwhelming and it tells me that I found a good place to share my art. Thank You!
For this week I have collected some of the pieces I have worked on with paper glue and colours. But first I want to share my start for an exquisite corpse I have done a few months ago. I hope I will see it return back to me soon!
I collaged a statue of Gorm the Old, who was king of Denmark around 930-40. And tried to continue the color for the face I let grow out of the picture. To add to the unnatural look I gave it red eyes and lips, which create a great contrast to the cool colors in the rest of the piece.
Below was meant to be a start to "Face in the World II"
But before I knew of it the face was there, though I only intended to make a hint for the participants to paint a face.
Below is the new start I did for Face in the World II. I collaged a piece of crepe de chine-silk onto an already painted cardboard and added more pastel and acrylic. I love it!!!
I did a few recycling pieces. The two to the left are water colours I made about two years ago. I added some lines of pastel chalk and acrylic to loosen up the impression.
The other two are pieces done out of advertisement mail. I collaged and painted over them, which was quite funny.
The last piece I want to share today is a canvas I want to take to the exhibition.
I started painting it all black inspired by a quote, saying that every painting should start with a layer of black... I don't really remember it completely, sorry!
When the paint was dry I collaged bits of paintings and drawings I had made earlier, to cover the whole canvas.
I covered the paper with a layer of decoupage-varnish.
following a piece of paper I had painted with blue ecoline. The contrast is awesome!
Below I added one of my favorite golden acrylics.
I then added white acrylic, pastels and collaged a face on top of it all. Painted it with black and white and added lines with charcoal. The blue spots are again ecoline.
I'm quite fond of the result. It is hanging on my living room wall at the moment.
The size is: 40x40 cm or 15 3/4 square inches.
