Ask what if?
How much can I change things?
What is the most extreme form I can create and still have something I want to make and will be happy to have made?
|Hibiscus with Plumeria Georgia O'Keeffe|
Georgia O'Keeffe pushed the limits of size.
Amongst other artists who stepped out into new areas are Kazimir Malevich, Paul Klee, Joan Miro, Richard Diebenkorn, Jackson Pollock, and perhaps my least favourite artist Willem deKooning. All challenge us in one way or another and make us restless with the work we make.
|Paul Klee Ad Parnassum|
Quilters and textile workers also love to push boundaries and work on concepts. Who are your sources of inspiration? Huguette Caland challenges me with her lines and dots- repetition
Gloria Loughman with her colours and the intricate details of her landscapes.
What will you choose:
work with only one design element, line, colour, value etc
an extreme range of colour or work in white
very large images or very small
complex or simple
The choice is yours.
