Thank you to Lisa-Marie, for the perfect way to wrap up the 3rd cycle of Viewpoints 9 - - using the undesirables in our supply closet/stash. For me, that meant revisiting a very large collection of synthetic organza and bits of discarded sheers and experiments. As summer winds down and V9 winds up (until cycle 4 begins on September 1st), it was an opportunity for a last hoorah, a bit of play and mindless wandering. Interestingly, the name came to me almost before anything else - - which you can interpret as you wish. I was thinking of the giant lollipops from when I was young, as big as your head and so pretty and colorful and enticing. And I had all of this brightly colored plastic to work with!
All-Day Sucker, back lit
All-Day Sucker is assembled from synthetic organza that has been starched, cut into 4.5" squares and made into two layers. The layers are 8 rows of alternating 1) all neutrals and 2) random-colored pieces with the hope of creating different value. Sometimes it was more successful than others :) The 3 circle pieces were sometimes between the layer and sometimes on top, to create more value....but synthetic organza really has a mind of its own.
All-Day Sucker, back lit, detail
I love these things back-lit! This was a great way to wrap up this cycle - I think it has probably been my favorite thus far. I'm excited that we will be having another premiere in Houston at Market and Festival this November and that we have 5 venues in Australia starting this November, also! Onward and upward to more exciting things. After the Undesirable Gallery, we will permanently move to our new home at: viewpoints9.com. It's all ready to go when we begin the new cycle next week. Look forward to seeing you there!
