If you’re someone who has been following my work for years, you’re probably wondering why you started seeing photographs of handwritten cards popping up on all my social media channels. What gives with these images?
Well, this artist is exploring something from her past. I studied creative writing alongside painting back in college, and I haven’t really done much writing since graduating, although recently I started writing a novel and have completed a handful of poems here and there. And that’s what sparked this series, The Write Art.
I started jotting down random thoughts that popped into my head throughout the day, and thought it would be fun to merge my previous life as a writer with my current work as an artist. The plan is to write down my thoughts on art, life, or something related to my sometimes absurd sense of humor, and then photograph my hand holding a handwritten card up in front of different backgrounds. It’s sort of like producing a collage in a different way, where I’m overlapping a handwritten card in front of different environments.
So far this new series has helped revamp my creativity, and I’m looking forward to continuing to share snippets of my thoughts on art, pop culture, and life in general. I’ve been making “painting with paper” collages since I was about sixteen, and every now and then it’s nice to change things up a bit. This new project is allowing me to do just that.
Here are a few images from this new series:
