For a while now I have been studying the Art, Craft and Design of Primitive peoples, for me a most fascinating period in History. For this challenge I drew some inspiration from my studies.
Then of course the title popped into my head...... Dream Walking..... all sorts of different ideas have emerged since...could be a series if I do not grow tired of it.
You will probably have noticed that the photos I have posted are from Aboriginal Art, a Phaidon Book by Howard Morphy. (ISBN07148 3752 0 ) published 1998. I have no wish to infringe Copyright in any way and I offer the images here merely as an inspiration, so if you have the opportunity to go to your library and borrow it please do. The images are fantastic.
These are some pages from my sketchbook, with a few line drawings and some colour swatches. the image in my head is becoming clearer. The title "Dream walking" is helping far more than I had anticipated.
The title of the above artwork : "Map of a painter's travel by plane" by Mawalan Marika seems particularly apt as we use the internet to map the pieces of artwork Sally and I are creating. I also am aware of the fact that this is particularly significant to Bobby in NZ at the moment.
Next I need to think in terms of textiles and "draw" with them. My next posting will deal with the colours I want to use from my stash. Then onto thinking about the possible techniques I might use. Scary but exciting. Please chip in with any ideas you may have, at the moment I am wearing my ideas on my sleeve as they say, so any support would be great.
