shap.j. THANK YOU!@the_line_drawing_project  #Repost@the_line_drawing_project

THANK YOU!@the_line_drawing_project #Repost<link>@the_line_drawing_project</link> with @get_repost ・・・ This is the work ‘Riposte’ by Julie Shapiro. @shap.j Mixed media collage with acryl/gouache on paper 36.5 x 26 inches Monterey, MA Julie says about her work: ‘Reading James Connors’ statement, I was attracted to this sentence…“Imbricated like an invisible scaffold throughout nature, chaos disrupts redundancies of accumulated order, such as time and place, offering a clearing for new configurations of reality to emerge.” My own work, though not directly derived from observation is strongly influenced by the geography of and experiences in nature. Moments in time and place become prompts for a piece of work, mixing experience, configuration, the irregular within the regular, the new within the familiar and the unexpected within the expected. In looking at James’ drawing I was particularly pulled to his use of individual marks to develop form. My initial response was to the whole, but as I became more familiar with his piece I decided to use the small form at the bottom, just left of center, as the starting point for my drawing. Following, the marks of this small section became the underlying structure for my piece. Using James' drawing as a starting point, adds one more piece to the mixture of unplanned occurrences, mixed sources and accumulated responses that become posited in my work. Drawing with cut and pasted paper adds to this notion, taking my hand a step away from the direct connection of drawing to its track. Individual strips, or marks, are cut in response to the developing configuration, but through a process that encourages unexpected alignments. Finally, and in the same vein, I decided on the color for this piece when I printed out James’ drawing. On my computer screen his drawing appeared to be black and white but when I printed it out, the black lines turned purple. This technological discrepancy offered up an unexpected event that seemed just the right prompt to bring into this drawing. ・・・
