Transforming the Ordinary
I have been Spring cleaning and tidying up here and there in preparation for my daughter's wedding in July. Today I tackled my studio bulletin board and found some quotes from an article I read in American Craft about artist's Kate Cusack. Like me, Cusack works with unusual, overlooked materials. Here are four quotes that resonate with me as an artist;
" When I transform an everyday material into something elaborate, it reminds the viewer of the power of imagination and the joy of discovering a new view of something that would have otherwise been overlooked."
"Whenever I see things in multiples, its exciting"
"What's interesting to me is the use and transformation of materials."
"There is something deeply liberating about working with expendable stuff."
Old T-shirts and other discarded clothing are the "expendable stuff" I transform into art everyday. A liberation of material and self!
