Poetry of the visual

I have attended four lectures today. My mind is bursting, my body is tired. The speakers that I listened to (and took notes from) were Melissa Leventon on Artwear, Elin Noble who demonstrated marbling on fabric, Julia E Phaff who spoke about art quilts and contemporary quilting today and Jo Stealey, who spoke about the poetry of the visual.

Artists each must make our own language. We use the following five elements to visually communicate our ideas. Concept. Formal qualities ( line, shape, colour etc). Technique. Materials. Process.
(from my Jo Stealey notes)

  1. So much ART! It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool!

    Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together.

    I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle. That's not the point. Pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!


Thank you for taking the time to connect. Much appreciated.xx
