Round My Intimate Times

Here is the results of what happens when you bring together a set of disarmingly charming artistic souls!

The Unveiling

CREATE A HOME WITH RECLAIMED OBJECTS 
Susannah Jo Foster
mixed media, 2013.

A few collages that I created last week, from furniture cut out of lifestyle home decoration magazines.

Drawings on my work wall. Thinking about:

  • Composition
  • Mixed materials - the organic machine
  • Gravitationally unlikely structures
  • Negative space, the edge of the mass
  • “Moving eye around the image” 
  • Found object assembly

Projects:
The cocoon/the death mask/ the morph – flesh bone/ the flower body. 
 
The Last Dinner (last week):
 
Wim Delvoye, Kartika Affandi, H.R. Giger, Love Hate Love, Ex de Medici, Jason Mailing, Hayao Miyazaki, Jacques Lacan, Andre Brenton, Nick Cave, Kristina Sutiyono, Heston Blumenthal, Rudolf Steiner, Pedro Almodovar. 
 
 
THE STUDIO:
Space
 
Play/ Interact/ Collaborate/ Develop/ Transform
 
To begin: A desk. A window. A wall. 
In the space of a few weeks, I find already this small corner in a long light filled room bursting with images, colours, objects and birthing merging ideas. The spaces I inhabit I turn into bowers, home to and adorned by all the treasures I collect, the beauties and uglies that catch my eye. My bedroom that doubles as a studio is the same, but bursting at the seams, and runs out through the shared space of the house. I find myself compelled to collect these objects, transfixed by some quality in them. Be this their texture, fragility, absurdity, impracticality, ridiculousness, exquisiteness, or their aesthetic quality. 
Constantly surrounded with stimulating material, as with a crowd of people the details blur and the definition is lost. And for me these objects are as much security as inspiration. 
 
OBJECT that is the BODY:
-       The Self 
-       The Other
-       The Group/Crowd
-       The Friend v’s Stranger 
-       The Lover - new/old
-       The Mother / Father 
-       The Object – of desire/hate/scorn/envy/lust
-       The Sex – Female/Male
-       The Age
 
-       To Look
-       To Touch – stranger/lover/etc. 
-       To Taste 
-       To Smell
-       The Voyeur
-       The Stalker
-       The Admirer 
-       The Admired
-       To hear
