Notes From A Trip To Past/Present 015
Earlier this year, I was accepted to a 2-month ceramics residency at the John Bauer Gallery in Cape Town, South Africa. I’d love community support in actualizing this opportunity. Learn more + give to help me get to the residency below.
I didn’t take to paper clay as quickly as I thought I would. In fact, based on the way it was made today, I didn’t take to it at all.
But, it did get me thinking about other ways to use the techniques involved in making paper clay and paper pulp in my practice. I have some experiments to run when I move into my new studio this fall.
That’s the value of staying in the process though. Something might not be for me, but it may generate ideas of what could be.
I am currently on an Artist Residency, writing, thinking, and working toward one of my current works in progress. This WIP is a memoir. Each day that I am here, on the residency, I will send you a note. They will reach you at all hours of the day and night. I do not promise that they will be long, coherent, adhere to any one form, or make sense at all. You are welcome to ask about what is shared—though I do not promise to answer or make any meaning for you. This space is after all a documentation of my creative practice—no more, no less.
