I’ve been asked to post my work for the upcoming show, Love’s Writ, here it is. Those of you who read my blog regularly will probably recognize this piece, it’s text I wrote for our first Pixel Fiction experiment, combined with an image from my “Drive” series.
The combination of text and imagery is actually harder to do than it looks. I found it a bit easier to conceptualize than to actually lay out the text with the work. Once you start putting words onto everything, it made it a bit harder for me-harder to see, harder to work with, harder to frame. But, you know, that’s just part of working with a new media. As far as the actual combination of text and image, I’m still fascinated by this and think it’s something I would like to continue to explore. I love to write and I love original content, so it just seems like a natural combination I need to attempt.
One of the great things about being an artist is that we get to experiment. We get to try new things. Sometimes, they work, sometimes, maybe not, but, each and every time, it’s like a whole new world. We get to open new doors, try out new things, and enjoy the fun of the chase.
Until next time…
It is simply beautiful! I tried it and mine ended up looking like a cheap hallmark card. You have such fabulous talent!
Its well put together…the imagery of the highway has such a dangerous feel, and the words as though in the mind of the driver suggest a reckless abandon of getting there at all cost…nice!
Thanks! It was hard to do but the show was fun, so I’m happy about that.
