It feels like Spring may be about to arrive – I have spent Winter hibernating and recovering from surgery, but I now feel it is time to get thoughts flowing on art once again.
I have taken a few photos of my studio, the hyacinth in bloom, my bowl of shells (spot the porcelain doll’s head from Spitalfields market in London), and a photo of my plan chest with the Featherskin works awaiting scanning and framing. I also took some snapshots of my book piles on Ornament and other books I have been reading.
While getting through the dark and cold winter months I have been reading, for a second time round, the wonderful book Enfoldment and Infinity – An Islamic Genealogy of New Media Art by Laura Marks. So for the next few posts I will be putting up some of the ideas I find very fascinating in this book and how some of them relate to my own work and outlook.
If you have had a chance to read my Artist Statement or the About page or my Biog you will know that a key area of interest for me is Ornament – how it works, how it means.
So check in over the next few days for my next instalment of Thoughts from Salma’s Studio 🙂
