amalgam: a mixture or blend.
this evening i took some time alone, with one simple purpose…to create art. during the time that i worked, i thought of no more, than what i was working on. i remained completely present and enjoyed what i was doing. it felt good to have no worry.
this piece is called,”amalgam.” it is a mixture of the two me’s, inner me and outer me…the creativity that i feel behind my camera and the source of the creative thoughts…the adorable me and amazingly, beautiful me.
i utilized two of my photos, cut into strips, then wove together. i created a mat to border the piece out of one of my mri films. i attached the mat to the piece. i am going to frame, with a light behind it.
it’s very abstracted, the two images meld together as one, but each image can still be made out, if you stare at it long enough. it reflects how i feel fragmented, compartmentalized, and broken…tiny bits and pieces, of the whole.
