In the Making


This is the second of the five sets of altered book pages I made for the other participants from our Inner Works Collaboration.

I just LOVE (you know what I mean *lol*) birds in art.
These holes are very interesting, what kind of material is that?

Jacky said...

Wonderful nature inspired pages...I love the way you have embraced each artists style in creating their pages.
Such wonderful textures. I love that material with the holes too.

I look at these as you show the pages you made and I wonder could I do something like this? It is like the spirit is willing but the talent is lacking. Smile.

Great use of complementary colo[u]rs, Seth! I love the bird.

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

I remember some of these, nice to see them again and to be here for the 'grand finale' of a lovely project.

The holes are interesting. And the birds are terrific. Your projects (and your friends) always look so rough hewn and textured. Cloth, bits and pieces. Such clever use of materials.

I am really liking all of these pieces, but your "light" image is super striking! The round shapes remind me of a very abstract "chicken wire" & then the 2nd shape in the fourth column to the right is a perfect chicken shape! I love all the thread & gauze-y un-weaving & the stenciled bird contemplating the "nest". Just really enjoyed spending some time with this! Love how all the elements come together.

Holy mackerel, these images and the blues in the below post leave me simply stunned with beauty. Love them and love what you are doing with these wonderful co-works.
That book -- INCREDIBLE.
Have a good good weekend.
Don't forget to breathe.

You do as well with nature as you do with rust. I always love your splatters, and your birds are unbelievable.

Ro Bruhn said...

Such gorgeous work and so much inspiration.

Marit said...

The seaside - and then this post.... have to take a breath now. Had it holding for a long time... Stunning pieces of work!

La Dolce Vita said...

these are just wonderful, rich textured and the cutouts are superb!

Sherry said...

always so inspirational to visit here; so many techniques and points of view.

Gillian McMurray said...

You know I love these ones. Anything nature inspired is a favourite of mine ;o) What are the fragments made of on the last two? (If I'm not being too cheeky asking.) They look like shell.

I love the lines you highlighted "the friendship between" and "presenting a gift." Finding a true friendship is the greatest gift.

The page that leaps out at me is Light. Looking at it enlarged is a visual treat.

I'm really enjoying perusing these pages from your Inner Works collaboration, they are all uniquely different. Love the seaside themed one in your previous post, the sea is one of my favourite places to daydream. Your accompanying poem is beautiful.
