This weekend Marlies brought our her new Fred Tomaselli book and this morning we watched a video of him talking about his work and process… it’s a really delightful interview and glorious work. It runs for 16 minutes if you click here.
His collage is so stunning and meticulous and I enjoyed his reference to finishing works and then wondering if he’ll ever create another good piece. “A few days of panic” he says.
It really made me pause and quell a little bit of my own panic and do some little scribbles of where I’d like to head next with the WBHD pieces. Then I ruled up some scaled down watercolour paper and set up the table so that when I’m back from the big city on Thursday I can lay down some simple watercolour and gouache and mess around with the yukkas and grass trees.
I really enjoyed Tomaselli’s words, so many thoughts resonated. Thanks Marlies for the introduction to him. And the car is packed and the Art Guard is ready for the big drive south.
