I'm starting a series exploring text and music as a basis for abstract work. The words in these are not a narrative (simply the letters of my name - Vivien). They will blur and blend and move on. First ideas ...
This first one is charcoal and white chalk on a mix of black and white paper, cut and collaged and worked into a little more. 20 inches wide approx x 10in tall approx
I decided to do these explorations as an artists book, 29cm square (almost 12 inches), a concertina that will open out wide.
Not sure where
just experimenting as I go.
Then I photographed it and added colour in Procreate. I'll do more of that, changing, combining and manipulating images as I go. So far having fun and letting it evolve, no fixed ideas other than working to a scale that will fit the book, which I'm adding pages to as I go.
