Drawing 3-D eyes and the human face.

Last Wednesday, I was invited by Susan Clements-Vivian to be guest speaker at SFU for the course IAT 208 Introduction to Drawing in SIAT.  The course is “an overview of the various forms and languages of drawing as both a critical and creative research tool.”

I did two follow-me exercises: 3-D eyes (using charcoal), human face (china marker).

 

 

The entire class was recorded and Susan gave me permission to share the raw footage here!  To follow along, you will need some paper, charcoal, a sharp edged eraser, a crayon and a china marker.  Enjoy!

We are made of star-stuff…

To get myself realigned and prepared for diving into writing/drawing/reflection, I check in with my Church that is Frida Kahlo and let the stream of consciousness flow.

Head to heart to hand.

To prepare for output, there must be some quiet me time, input.  Some meditation.  And for me that is the private act of sitting in my studio bedroom and applying china marker to paper, just for me.  Output is input.  To prepare to create, I create.  I draw to draw.

Kahlo

To feel the anguish of waiting for the next moment and of taking part in the complex current (of affairs) not knowing that we are headed toward ourselves, through millions of stone beings – of bird beings – of star beings – of microbe beings – of fountain beings toward ourselves. – Frida Kahlo

Kahlo 2

The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself. ― Carl Sagan

I would encourage you to meditate upon the squirrel…

I’ve been obsessing about squirrels of late, knowing that my encounters with them hold a deep meaning- one I haven’t really understood yet.

In time.

Meanwhile, I am head-over-heels in love with @this_girl_is_a_squirrel . I can’t stop looking at her IG feed.

MUST DRAW.

So I did.

12718267_10208854436700376_2614787978171362814_n

I would encourage you to meditate upon the squirrel, and ask it to reveal its message to you. Odds are it will share its own special messages with you. source

 

Evolution of a portrait: “Calavera Kim”

          

Hope is like a harebell, trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily, lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose, the world’s delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both.

– Christina Rossetti

Owl wisdom

Taking a somewhat silent retreat today to regroup and prepare for transitions.  Picked up an old sweater (80% merino wool, 20% cashmere) and created these little one inch plus tall baby owls. Perfect for holding in the palm while figuring stuff out.

I have always found that sewing and drawing owls is a powerful experience.

10 Tuesdays. 10 Fridas. Frida No.10: Moomin Frida.

I’ve been celebrating my blog with an art event. The event honors the woman who inspires me to keep it going as an artist: Frida Kahlo.

IMG_4886-0

For 10 Tuesdays, I have been creating/posting 10 different portraits of Frida Kahlo (plus some additional posts here and there) in some form/medium or another. It may be a drawing, an object, a doll, multimedia, whatever… A surprise.

Recall:

Frida No. 1: Sock Doll

Frida No. 2: The Dream

Frida No. 3: The Chakras

Frida No. 4: Frida and her magic cone of truth

Frida No. 5: A Coloring Page for You

Frida No. 6: Sock Doll in Tehuana Dress

Frida No. 7: Fetal Frida

Happy birthday Frida

Frida Kahlo July 6, 1907- July 13, 1954

Frida No. 8: Dia de los Muertos sock monkey

Frida No. 9: Frida and the magpie portrait

And so… here we are.

Frida No. 10: Moomin Frida

Inspired by Tove Jansson‘s “Lilla My” from Moomin.

Moomin_kuva

IMG_5062
My “Lilla My” fan art (china marker on newsprint)

It is simply this: do not tire, never lose interest, never grow indifferent—lose your invaluable curiosity and you let yourself die. It’s as simple as that.  – Tove Jansson

Here, Frida as Lilla My chews on her Diego cookie.  She wears the hand earrings sculpted for her by Picasso:

The most curious thing about the supposed lies of Diego, is that in the long and short of it, those who are involved in the imaginary combination become angry, not because of the lie, but because of the truth contained in the lie, that always comes to the surface. – Frida Kahlo

Happy birthday Frida

Frida Kahlo July 6, 1907- July 13, 1954

Frida No. 8: Dia de los Muertos sock monkey

Frida No. 9: Frida and the magpie portrait

10 x 14 ” China marker, spray paint, acrylic, embroidery thread on paper.

The magpie’s speech is symbolic of communication and creative expression. When we hear the magpie speak it is a message to us that we might need to listen to what is being spoken to us – listen with more attention. The chatter of the magpie is also a symbolic message that we may need to speak our minds more clearly….speak up, express our opinions, be creative with our spoken words.

The magpie’s obsession with shiny things is symbolic of our tendency to chase after false ideas or perceptions. When the magpie comes into our lives it is often a reminder that we may have to re-evaluate our priorities. Are we chasing after unsuitable desires? Are we serving a false ideal? Are we putting materialism ahead of matters of the soul?

The magpie builds its home in the thickest “V” of trees. Forks or V’s in nature are symbolic of gateways or paths into the spirit realm. In this fashion, the magpie asks us about our level of spiritual perception. Specifically, the magpie asks to keep an open mind in matters of the spirit. She also asks us where our spiritual foundation is and encourages us to open the gateways of higher (spiritual) vision… [source]

Recall Item Frida No. 1: Sock Doll

FRIDA NO. 2: THE DREAM

This chinamarker panel on masonite board is one of my most personal pieces and measures 18″ x 24″ by 1/4″

It is part of a personal art therapy series of panels.

IMG_4128

 Frida Kahlo is an icon and muse that I return to again and again.  I am infused by Frida and I consider myself a Kahloist.  She epitomizes the artist and woman in pain.  As I was going through my divorce, I was driven to draw Frida as a child.  The medium I chose (or it chose me) was china marker on masonite board.  Child-Frida was a light to help me process through and to lift me out of the hole of depression.

I LOVED making this series even though they were done at 3 AM with my heart pounding and anxiety choking me.  They allowed me to release the pain in the moment.  They allowed me to process the pain in my therapy sessions.

The 12 pieces (only a few remain in my personal collection) illustrate the power of art to process life changes.  Heavily, honestly.  I never tend to go light.

And the pieces have been protested: LINK

As mentioned, we are part of a global art initiative founded by French street artist JR, winner of the 2011 Ted Talk Prize.  Our project is called: The Inside Out Project- Own Your Journey.

As they work through the curriculum, the students will be gaining some valuable life and transferable skills.

We use TED TALKS to inspire and to induce dialogue and self-reflection around the theme.

Student journal entry

When you try to be yourself there will be people who will put you down. You grow up looking up to people and not knowing who you are and being told what to do and what not to do. We all deal with pain in different ways- some do it in a sad way. Having to live in a world where judging a person we don’t even know is a good way to make yourself feel better, or even judging a person makes ‘cool.’ But in the end we are all on this earth for a reason ans we should all love ourselves the way we are and respect all of our good qualities and get rid of all the negative, cruelty thoughts. – student journal entry

 IMG_0461
We are registering our project with JR’s site on Tuesday! And our unique angle is that it is a youth run project and that by addressing their own vulnerability by connecting w people/community through portrait photography, the youth, in turn, empower the subject to feel comfortable being vulnerable in front of the camera!
The project will culminate in a large outdoor installation in the Spring.  A documentary and a behind the scenes short film will also be produced!

Why the need to draw what draws us? #journal #rambling

Why are we drawn to the human face? What draws us in? Why the need to draw what draws us? Why do we fixate on the stare of an eye meeting an eye? Is the draw of the portrait the silence in the glance, the fastidiousness of the stare? The reflection in a mirror- a reflection of recognition, a longing, a curiosity? Is it that we can imagine what is said and therefore get closer to the truth? Do we long for the silence of the portrait so we can hear ourselves, hear them? Do we see them or do we hope that they see us? That they hear us?

IMG_0352.JPG

Why are we drawn? What draws us in? What are we drawing? Who do we actually see?

IMG_0343.JPG

Is her reflection actually our own? Who and what are we drawing out?

Does time actually stand still?

Does wheatpasting work on a ceiling tile? Hmmm…

I will be facilitating a really exciting Cultural Portrait pilot project at a local high school in a couple of weeks. The plan is for the 30 students to create a street art type ceiling as they explore self and cultural identity. The work is to go on those classic porous school ceiling tiles- you know the kind- with about 3 students working on one tile together, to create dialogue, camaraderie, and group creative process.

But does wheatpasting (my fave form of street art) work on the fibrous board?

The answer is YES!
