In my artist statement I state that I love simple, but I tend to overcomplicate. I've been studying minimalism in the hope of creating minimalist work that has the simplicity and graphic impact that I crave, but at the same time is interesting and unique. It's been a challenge for me for sure. Simple is hard!
I spent my evenings this week cutting and pasting with my favorite material...craft foam. I think I might have the start of a series I'll be happy with. I love black and white. I want to stay with that for now and add a bit of color when necessary. It might be fun to work in a series too. I think working on these will be a blast. I'd like to control myself and work small, but knowing me that's not going to happen. Stay tuned.
That second image really speaks to me. Good luck with simple!
So true, simple is complicated. But I think the project will be striking!!
There is nothing simple about simple. I also consider myself a minimalist, but it is so hard to be taken seriously. Your work inspires me and I can't wait until you post the next photo. When I was very young my Dad gave me a nice compass set and I quickly learned that with a compass set and a ruler anything is possible.
Love all your works. I have read and re-read your book many times. Took your class on Craftsy and loved it. Keep up the good work.
Craft foam, eh? Liking very dynamic black and white. I agree simple is hard!
Very impressive work! I love these graphics. hope to see more! Keeping it simple, my motto, isn't always so simple!
You are my inspiration! I am impressed to know that you struggle to find your designs...here I thought it came easy for you. I took you improv class on Craftsy and found it very exciting. These designs are all wonderful.
Love your black and white images!
