artist bear treads in some paint and makes a complete mess
in the journal this week ...
so I went with a bit of an art theme
inspired by a beautiful piece of sculpture I saw in a London street
installed on a massive plinth on the pavement
I later discovered the work to be that of artist Emily Young
this is my own photo ... with street background removed
to really highlight the detail and nuances of this wonderful sculpture
I don't know if this is still in situ ... but I discovered it in the region of
Holland Street, Southwark ... just a street or two away from Tate Modern
I printed up a smaller version for the journal on hand painted paper
dipped in wax and attached to my page with photo corners
you can see the edges of the page are "chewed"
the rings are inspired by a Barbara Hepworth sculpture
I am very lucky that I live near Tate's Barbara Hepworth Studio
to visit when I like and enjoy the many installations dotted around St. Ives
I included a photo of Barbara Hepworth in her studio
and one of her installations ... both waxed
one of them pre-printed with lace and red ink
you can see (higher up) the edges of the page have been "chewed"
but not swallowed !
it was rather yuk I have to say!
but I put the little pieces of paper in a little bag
and stitched it to the journal page
and a map of Southwark (a borough of London) where we stayed in February 2013
we stayed in Great Suffolk Street which was very handy
for Tate Modern, the Millennium bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral
we visited St. Paul's ...
I love the lacy plane trees all around London
and the winter birch trees at Tate Modern
I've only just really begun to go through my London photos
I'm going to get some printed up and pop them in my book
with personal notes and memoirs
yes ... I am enjoying the journal project
and revisiting my old London stuff
and so pleased that I am visiting London again soon ♥
