A couple of weeks ago, I finally met up with Kristin, the artist from Versailles, and started helping her with a piece of art she was trying to finish for an open Studio she was having in New York City. As I mentioned in the last post, the project was was gluing down strips of shredded paper onto a canvas in a specific pattern. I have attached a couple of pics of the piece, which turned out really great, i thought!! Once that piece was finished we started on another piece, which Kristin planned to finish in New York. It was a really neat experience getting to work with an artist. We talked about everything under the sun, including art, and had a really good time. :) It was definitely motivating and inspired me to get started doing stuff of my own!!
Kristin's website is http://kristinrichards.com , but it looks like she is updating and doesn't have her "Paper" pieces listed right now. Be sure to check back!
|This is a picture of the first piece, about 2/3 of the way done.|
|The pink one in the back is another piece she had done... I love it!|
|The finished product!|
|This is the 2nd piece that we started. This one was orange strips of paper in a diagonal design, to have additional layers added on top.|
