WORKING ON WINGS TO FLY

posted by Deborah Maris Lader

My latest series of etchings are derived from both dreams and life, and the way these experiences are sewn together, with odd bits of memories mixed and strewn throughout. They are ethereal portraits of sorts. Birds with human limbs live in limbo between earth and flight, as the inevitability of change encroaches. There is both danger and peace as the possibility of flight is considered, and this moment stands as a metaphor for hope. The things of life do creep their way into my images, of course. In some of these prints, I believe the "baby birds" represent my children, who have started to leave the safety of their nest and will hopefully somehow find their wings.

ETRES PAS SI BêTES

The topic I want to make deals with the similarities between humans and animals! It is an invitation to philosophize about the question: who is the animal that animal? . This symbolic duality brings me to develop and produce pictorial visions addressing different "looks" incisive and ironic about the human world inspired by the animal world What is this work? These depict bestiality we are both actors and spectators, conscious or unconscious. My analysis is to make comparisons between the man and the beast! These personify: Ones not so stupid.

PROCESS

posted by georgianne fastaia

I believe that what you discard is as important as what remains visible. The impetus behind every mark I make on the canvas is to “transform the mistake”. I have been refining an experimental technique for removing layers of paint which I call a lift. This unorthodox process reveals ghosts of underlying imagery and has become my own form of storytelling: visually communicating abstract concepts of impermanence and fragility. The process is completely unpredictable. By giving up control, I am forced to stay lighthearted and adaptable to the paintings evolution. There is liberation in non-attachment, and it is this irreverence which has, at its core, a fearless leap of faith.
