A bit of this and a bit of that as I go from here to there...
Friday, 7 May 2010
A couple of weeks ago, an artist friend of mine, Kate Kirby, went out on a limb and gave me some lapis lazuli and a Cypriot fertility cross that she wasn't using in the form that she had them. This is precisely the kind of reworking -- kind of like visual editing - that I like to do. The lapis lazuli were as a simple string of graded beads, the cross came by itself. These are the results:
The fertility cross photo is of work that was still in progress, but I wanted to play a bit with the idea of a rosary, but without keeping strictly to that structure.
And the end result of the lapis lazuli beads.
Anyway, just some last things for people to see.... Thanks Kate!
