Lori Reed‘s vibrant striated photo collages caught my eye recently, especially this one:
Sippin’ on sunshine
Lori described it thus: This 12″ x 12″ piece features a happy bee sipping his supper. I made one filtered version of the photo in Photoshop and 3 in Prisma. I cut them into irregular shapes and combined to reform the image, and added in some handmade papers, too.”
Having buzzed around the photos on her website, I knew that I wanted to show her work to a wider audience (that’s you) – and asked permission, delightfully, she granted it. So here are a few more stunning photos, together with insights from the artist herself.
Are you watching the Olympics? I’m playing catchup – and this pairs routine certainly caught my eyes. It’s exquisitely performed and the height of the throws in the air are amazing.
If you have a cynic who doesn’t understand the attraction of ice skating – is it art? is it athletics? Well, this is a good, expressive example – where what is going on is so much more than simply listening to a good piece of music. (Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” sung by K D Lang).
This tremendous quote was drawn by artist David Bailin – more at his website here.
When you think about it – has this quote applied to you recently? And how could you build that expectation into your next artworks, or the way in which we see them? Does it have implications for the cinema and the way in which it shows its artworks?
