I did a lot of work today on the new artwork I’m making for the W.M.D. exhibition coming up fast. It’s part of a corset that I’ve constructed in paper. I finished the cutting and sewing and now I’m ready to stitch strips of paper stamped with the image of German Expressionist artist, the late Käthe Kollwitz, who is a hero of mine.
BUT! I can’t decide. Should I sandwich the images in between the two pieces of the paper structure or should I stitch them to the top? I quite like the subtlety of the sandwiched ones but this is going to be exhibited in a venue that often has subdued lighting, so maybe I should go with the boldness of the images stitched on top? I’ll have to make my mind up tomorrow……
W.M.D. (above) will feature wall-based artwork from 21 Welsh artists along with films, talks, food and performances and will be happening at Cinema & Co throughout March, along with other events in Swansea, which is actually quite a funky city.
The celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD) has been around for over a hundred years. Its roots were in the campaign to win votes for women and it was ratified by the United Nations in 1977 as a day for women’s equality and world peace.
I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder. If you want to see more, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
