Well... life is full of surprises... I decided to apply for membership in Prism, a well known exhibiting group. As part of the process, I was required to submit up to six images of work over the past five years. And that was what was surprising... first, that I'd made as much work as I had. Although given the lack of space in the house, that really should not have been a surprise at all...sigh. The second, though, was the underlying theme running through my work. I had always thought that it was 'about' emotions...and, of course, it is. But it's predominately 'about' landscape...inner and outer. I thought I would show you the images I have sent to them, to see if you agree with me.
Inner Landscapes IV
Linescapes I : Rewriting The Landscape
I wrote about this piece a couple of days ago.
Small, hand stitched pieces made to specific rules; I have written about them in several posts, with a summary of the 'rules' here. In their way, they too seem to be landscapes...
This is the first part of the application process, and I have my fingers crossed. If I don't get through, though, I have to say that this has been a very useful process to go through. I had thought that I was quite clear about the way my work was going; this has been a useful refocussing of my attention onto the really important bits.
