Anyhow, for last couple of months I have been trying to distill my art into two categories: color and shape. Well, I throw in texture for good measure but my main focus is to capture simplest of forms. And now that I have my "sketch" pad with me at all times, I can jot down my ideas in a jiffy, whenever inspiration strikes me! Here's my very first electronic " grid"sketches:
|Ishita Bandyo, Electronic Sketch 1|
|Ishita Bandyo,Grid 1, Mixed Media Collage,16"x20"|
This collage evolved from the sketch even thought the final product is a bit different.....
I gotta say though, in my research I came across late Margo Hoff's astounding collages! She explores the same ideas even though her's more evolved and involved ! Lisa Call, a quilt artist has the same idea of exploring grid shapes in her works. I feel, I have references for now and can't wait to come up with my next project!
