oh my goodness, karin. this is fabulous. yes, it truly is 'beyond words'...
Wow.This is waaaaaay better than "Where's Waldo?"This is like Richard Scary's "Busy, Busy World" meets "The Bhagavad Gita" meets "The Voyager Tarot."I LOVE your work!
You are totally amazing.
All I can say is, your hands must be feeling better!
Ha! I'll have to find a little picture of Waldo and try to sneak him in there somewhere!!Odd as it may seem, these are what I do when I need to give my hands a break. For some reason, the simple act of tearing is what's easiest - using scissors, pencils, gripping other tools, not so much. It's because of the joint deteriotration in my hands that I was led to doing these - a gift come out of struggle through adaptation. It also taught me to get over a bunch of little road blocks I'd set in front of myself about collaging - like, can I use "other artist's art?" I had labeled that as wrong in my brain - or some how not "real" art, if I'm using someone else's images. And then once I got over that, there was the getting over using up the images - what if I need them somewhere else?! If I tear them up, they are gone... Noting that was an issue, I don't let myself scan and reuse, and now I'm over that fear of derivation thing! I leave it all behind when I get to escape into these landscapes of many minds, filled with the timeless characters of other times and places...
Wow! This is intense! So much to see. I am absorbing the meaning.
Oh wow! Karin your work is stunning!A feast for the eyes.
Thanks for visiting and leaving your thoughts!
Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that, because what the world needs is people who come alive.
Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
