Write Your Own Autumn Greeting Cards By Chris Dunmire It is easy to pluck a greeting card off the rack and post a meme graphic on social media, but personalized hand-written messages remain highly prized treasures! Let me open the space for you to engage your writing and creativity. While greeting cards celebrating birthdays, weddings, baby showers, and Christmas are Hallmarks of traditional celebratory giving, here's a unique opportunity for you to break the mold and dig into the reason for the season.
Don't copy them, but use them as inspiration to sculpt your own statement using ideas and words. Dough - Artist Statement My artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. In my work, I deconstruct the American dream, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and lullabies that are part of our childhood and adult culture.
Having engaged subjects as diverse as the civil rights movement, southern rock music and modernist architecture, my work reproduces familiar visual signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered pieces. Often times these themes are combined into installations that feature mundane domestic objects painted blue, juxtaposed with whimsical objects, and often embellished with stenciled text.
The color blue establishes a dream-like surreal quality, suggests notions of calmness and safety, and formally unifies the disparate objects in each installation. The texts provide clues to content and interpretation. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent.
Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter.
The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work. Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work.
Millie Wilson - Artist Statement I think of my installations as unfinished inventories of fragments: They are improvisational sites in which the constructed and the ready-made are used to question our making of the world through language and knowledge.
My arrangements are schematic, inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. I rely on our desires for beauty, poetics and seduction. The work thus far has used the frame of the museum to propose a secret history of modernity, and in the process, point to stereotypes of difference, which are hidden in plain sight.
I have found the histories of surrealism and minimalism to be useful in the rearranging of received ideas. The objects I make are placed in the canon of modernist art, in hopes of making visible what is overlooked in the historicizing of the artist. This project has always been grounded in pleasure and aesthetics.
Molly Gordon - Artist Statement Knitting is my key to the secret garden, my way down the rabbit hole, my looking glass.
Hand knitting started it. From the beginning the process of transforming string into cloth has struck me as magical. And, over the years, that magical process has had its way with me, leading me from hobby to art.
Knitting fills me with a sense of accomplishment and integrity, and has proven a most amenable vehicle for translating inner vision to outer reality. I knit from the inside out. Though I work quite deliberately, consciously employing both traditional and innovative techniques, my unconscious is the undisputed project manager.
The concrete, repetitive nature of this work frees my imagination and provides many opportunities for happy accident and grace to influence the finished product. Recently I discovered some childhood drawings: Inspired and invigorated by a renewed sense of continuity, and awed by the mystery of how creation occurs, I am now knitting richly varied fabrics exploring many patterns, textures and colors.
Once knit, the fabrics are pieced to form an always new patchwork from which I make my garments and accessories.If creative writing is your passion, then you’d probably enjoy a career in which you could spend all day (or at least most of the day) pursuing that passion.
But creative writing is an artistic pursuit, and we all know that a career in the arts isn’t easy to come by. It takes hard work, drive. If your expertise, education and passion for the creative process is split between the world of art and the craft of writing, there are a number of career paths that you can explore which will allow you to not only dabble in both fields and meet interesting people but also draw a competitive salary.
Here are five visual storytelling projects to inspire students to use both writing and art to create a work that is powerful and new. A photo essay is a wonderful way to educate and engage the public. Whereas one photo can catch a viewer’s interest, multiple photos can tell an in-depth story.
