Creating Visual Movement and Rhythm


Posted by Picasa

Creating movement with cut paper requires more than just cutting.  Your mind has to visualize and follow your idea of the line or shape before any cutting actually takes place.   Next, trying various arrangements and selecting the one that makes the piece "work" ...then you glue. At this point, what the artist sees flows backwards as Eric Jensen says, using our cognition and memory to double-check, mediate, and fill in what we see. Doing art, is a way of thinking and demonstrating the product of thinking.  What a marvelous journey, that's what I say-

positive and negative space
non-objective art
