I think I've mentioned a couple of times that I'm participating in Mother Henna's artist collaboration project. The subject is Hero & Shadow, creating a 6" x 10" panel for each persona/archetype.
Above is the background of my panel and below are the pieces and parts that will fill it in. I decided to go with lots of color, texture and quite a little bit of tarot influence for my Hero panel. Can you guess which cards have inspired me?
I've been experimenting with some new ideas and techniques, some sculpting, and adding a tiny bit on non-polymer media like beads and wire. I'm not exactly sure what kind of art category my panels fit into, it's not exactly collage, not exactly sculpture. Whatever it is, its coming together at last.
Want to participate in this art collaboration project? There are still 7 artist spots open. Contact Mother Henna through her blog. Want to see everyone's finished Hero/Shadow panels? Mother Henna will be publishing a book containing all participants' submissions and it will be available at Lulu.com.
