Theme Thursday #11: 8.6.09

This is a more philosophical Theme Thursday. Marley the Heathen had an existential shake-up and is exploring religions. She grew up in a non-religious home, and despite a great job as a 60-MINUTES producer, she was filled with doubt. Is there a God? Does it matter? She is exploring the seven major religions and looking for meaning in life.

Elizabeth Perry at Woolgathering thinks by drawing. The page layout is fascinating and the smallest items (ice coffee) can enliven a page.

Lisa Pressman did an article on Kristy Hall. The quote by Hall on Pressman’s page is provocative and demanding. “Capturing the traces left behind by events and finding ways to embody memory within objects are central concerns in my art. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects – pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes – to make sculptures or performances that deal with fragility, decay, loss, repetition, obsession and time.”

  1. Quinn, this is a great set of links. I read a bit of Marley, intrigued, and will read more.

    Perry’s work–I always look at that kind of art journal and say “I could have done that.” It’s the part where I don’t do it that makes all the difference.

    Lisa Pressman link isn’t working, but I checked out Kirsty Hall’s site. I love ALL her projects. The knots for 70 years. The pins. Tempted to do an envelope project–how easy and fun! And did you see her set of articles on social media?
