if my art could talk

The Process. mixed media collage
The Process, 5 x 5 mixed media collage

Seth Apter recently published a book of 100 artists titled, "The Pulse of Mixed Media, secrets and passions of 100 artists." Artists could submit written answers or art works in response to prompts for the book. I submited a written answer which is included in the book!

He does an amazing job of inspiring and bringing together a community of creative minds and continues to do so on his blog. Currently, Seth has an online open call to compliment the book on his blog.

I chose the question: The Artistic Ingredient: If your artwork could talk, what would it say? Above is the 5 x 5 art work titled, The Process. I'll be sending this out to Seth tomorrow.

This art piece has layers of various monoprints as the background. Using a sakura micron pen, I drew a portrait and traced the shapes I saw in the monoprints. I used pencil to draw the graph and the oval shape. The found sentences from a vintage math book describe how I reflect on my world through my art.

Division is the process of finding,
Reduction is the process of changing,

WOW...this is a very moving piece, Juana! I love the words, and especially "progression"...keeping going, keeping moving. :o) Just an over all wonderful feeling of colors, shapes, textures--all the hallmarks of great mixed media. CONGRATS on being features in "The Pulse of Mixed Media..."--what a thrill! :o) ((HUGS))
