Animation/Collage from ink drawings on Denril.
My process begins with cartography. I plant things in my “urban” garden. I photograph the yard from many different angles each season, as I move mounds & transplant the terrain. I study & map portions of the yard, carefully examining vegetation & how light & shadow play. The maps I make generate a new topography each season. The roots of this project and many others have been developed over the course of the last 10 or so years. The first seed was planted in a previous project called “Dear Glenn Gould.” I obsessively listened to Gould’s “Goldberg Variations: The Well Tempered Clavier.” The drawings are a visual “counterpoint” They are layered visual information, producing an imagined time lapse view / code of a world.

  1. A beautiful video. It puts one into the mind of the artist. From begining to end the drawing glorifies the reality. Very well done. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

  2. A very original & sensitive presentation of your work. Care & attention you devoted to your garden is very touching. & rewarding, thanks a lot! You follow the natural process patiently, shading the work through layers of time & the result is a happy feeling well served by the music. A very lovely celebration!

  3. Thank you all very much for viewing the work and for your kind and insightful comments. I am looking forward to getting into the studio and making more work! Thank you for a lovely experience. Happy Spring!

  4. Hello Terri, Thank you very much for your submission this month. I find this work very “musical” even before I read your artist statement! The movement captures something musical as if notes are dancing along. Also the reference to seed and growth is very strong! Best wishes, Laara WilliamSen
