Studio news/blog

Dear Friends,

That’s a wrap from me for 2017…

What a interesting, year it has been!

Thank you for all the love and every comment, feedback as well as invitations to participate in exhibitions I received during this year.

Best wishes for the festive season.


I’ll hope to ‘see’ you in the new year again xxx

 

 Pan / Pale Man: A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breeze, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess’ soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning…-quote from the movie “Pan’s Labyrinth”

An ‘impromptu’ head-dress

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news/blog

 

So I’ve made this ‘impromptu head-dress’ last week. The embroidered rubber wings are actually meant for a sculpture I’m working on, but I realized that they fit nicely around my head.

The impromptu photo-shoot followed…My friend Karen took these photographs over the weekend. Much fun.

Hope you have a great week everyone.

some sort of tale…

It has been a crazy roller-coaster kind of month so far but ….happily stitching away…

 Inbetween the stitching I’ve been planning for my upcoming solo in 2016, had a encouraging studio visit and made some time to play!

oh and

I learned a new word a couple of days ago: Cosplay:

Cosplay (コスプレ,kosupure?), a portmanteau of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture and a broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage.

 Cosplay costumes vary greatly and can range from simple themed clothing to highly detailed costumes. It is generally considered different from Halloween and Mardi Gras costume wear, as the intention is to replicate a specific character, rather than to reflect the culture and symbolism of a holiday event. As such, when in costume, some cosplayers often seek to adopt the affect, mannerisms, and body language of the characters they portray (with “out of character” breaks). The characters chosen to be cosplayed may be sourced from any movie, TV series, book, comic book, video game, or music band anime and manga characters. Some cosplayers even choose to cosplay an original character of their own design or a fusion of different genres (e.g. a steampunk version of a character). (from Wikipedia)

Interesting!

anyway…..here goes my version of ‘Goldilocks”:

20150614_112451

A great while ago when the world was full of wonders, there lived a woman in a town known as the Bay of the Sleeping Beauty. We called her :

Goldilocks, for she loved the colour gold (not really)  and she’s always trying to unlock mysteries.

 

search unsuccessful

One sunny day she went in search for her heart

Okay so I admit….its kind of silly and corny, but it was fun anyway…we took random photos and later while I was looking through them I tried to make up a story….
