text and music - artists book work in progress



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 it's going 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.

Re: text and music - artists book work in progress

so I started putting it together as a book 29cm square, just under 12 inches

On the face of it I'll weave images in and out of each other and on the reverse make notes of what I did and stick less successful bits as examples of techniques used - and thoughts about where it's going



book beginning - long way to go




reverse side



digital experiment playing with one of the pieces done with printing ink, phoographed and colour added in procreate



ditto




and one of the prints worked into with a gold posca pen and some coloured pencil and a touch of ballpoint pen

Very neat stuff. More abstract work has always interested me but I feel like my mind tends to focus too much on making structure that’s too normal.
