Making pieces of art on cardboard has become a thing – and Dismantled Project now has it’s own page that will continue to grow as I post more pieces.
Building New Realities
It’s the New Moon at 23º Aquarius today at 11:05 am PST. The moon has been hanging out with five other planets also in Aquarius. We are being supported to imagine wildly, think differently, create new realities for ourselves. Put some new vibes out there. I like to phrase my Aquarius New Moon intentions as “what if . . . ” questions.
What if you came up with ten new ways to imagine your reality? What if you let creativity be fun?
dis·man·tle – verb, take (a machine or structure) to pieces.
I am using cardboard to explore the process of making in a new way, of tearing down a structure and repurposing it in a way that pleases me. The ritual of taking apart and rebuilding is soothing when I think of it as a response to the breaking down of our social structures since the pandemic.
There are so many ideas piling up in my mind I can’t see them all clearly. They don’t stop coming, they keep showing up. I had to start somewhere and release the bottleneck. I am letting them come out, one at a time, and laying them down as quickly as possible. This project is both a prelude to more work on canvas, and, an offering of a more affordable alternative to my canvas pieces.
Shake things up!
I am producing approximately a drawing/painting a day on cardboard til spring? Summer? 2022? Til I get too busy with gigs to produce something everyday? Maybe til tomorrow.
We all have 24 hours with which to experiment, try things, do it over, play, cry, let it out, take it in, dance, choose, breathe. What a relief!
What will you do today? And today? And today?
