Emerge May 08
The background of this piece was collaged during Traci’s class. Many people were trying out the technique involving the heat and bond, but with only one iron and it being Sunday afternoon, my energy was wading and I stuck to my table and glued bits and pieces together. Only later when I got home did the face emerge from the pieces and more acrylic was added on the left hand side (yes, again… a face with one eye only so the left hand side got “wiped” out). I think the print said something like “out of colour zone” or “out of colour comfort zone”… of which, only the “out of” remains. Traci works with such bright colours and emphasises not to mix three primaries to avoid muddy browns. As a girl who loves her browns, I was having trouble going with bright. For me, this piece is bright!
