Pam Carriker has included seven Artist Spotlight Projects in her new book, Art at the Speed of Life. For each of these projects, one artist created an artwork and presents step-by-step, written and pictorial instructions so that the reader can learn the specific techniques of each artist. Pam takes this one step further and includes for each of these projects a companion project that will allow the reader to use the same techniques but in less time.
My contribution to the Spotlight Projects, which you can recreate in your own style and voice using the instructions in the book, was a textural assemblage called Gaze...
Gaze was a step-out project, where I had to provide step-by-step visuals to the publisher to photograph. This means that each piece of the assemblage had to be remade up to seven times so they could photograph the steps in order. When my artwork was returned, I also received all the step-out pieces that went into making Gaze.
I have decided to use these pieces to make additional artworks which, because they used all the same materials, will become members of Gaze's family. They are currently all in progress but will be posted soon.
