Before I post more photos of my Merry-go-round signs I think I should explain what lies behind; my thoughts and intentions - and the long road (often uphill) I walked to get there ... I've now got so much material (art) I will never use, because I felt that was not really what I was after. At least I'm not afraid of experimenting and really giving things a try!
Last autumn I really felt I wanted to get rid of the need to frame my watercolors, to get away from that "picture on the wall" feeling. So I tried painting watercolour on specially prepared canvas. I also wanted to work with a kind of repetition, the "same same but different" you see in models' faces, in stereotypical beauty, in advertising. It's a canon, but also superficial. I was thinking biiiiig, I was thinking billboard. Maybe rising the pointless and superficial to an almost religious level? Overwhelm? Superimpose? Instead of minimum go fro maximum?
These are work in progress images I never showed from October-November last year.
