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.
