Visual Dialogue

I have started a new one-to-one project with a very good friend and artist, Linda.   I am using a Khadi paper journal and Linda an altered book, prepped and gessoed in black – wonderful surface to work on.  I suppose the title is self-explanatory, we are to use no text or written words at all.  Apart from that, there are no other rules – we have agreed that we can work anywhere in the books – on each others’ spreads (I wholeheartedly encourage this) – adding to, altering, whatever speaks to be done or we can start an entirely new spread each time – it is entirely up to us as individuals to intuit where to go next.   As it is a visual dialogue I will upload the pictures but make no comments save a title.

About Jill An artist inspired by nature in all her glorious guises and the ‘inner’ worlds I have inhabited in the past, present and future; also those of other wanderers I meet along the way.

    Incredible!! And what a wonderful way to approach creativity and art. Gosh the concept of collaborative art is very powerful. Quite a philosophical statement in todays world of individuality. Way to go girls!! 🙂
