Do Something Creative Every Day: Shiso mama. 228 collages.

I started the collage-a-day project because I was feeling so consumed by my life with baby, and rather unable to focus any creative energy on myself. Whenever I tried to make something, it felt like I had to make something significant or important because time was so precious. But I started to think about Chris Ofili and a collection of gouaches that he had painted, to warm up and start his day in the studio. They were gorgeous and free and joyous, and I started thinking about making something every day, a little stress-free exercise to get myself more in the mind of a real artist. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done, and probably the closest I’ve ever felt to being a “real” artist. shiso mama
Do Something Creative Every Day non è unicamente lo slogan di Paper Source, ma è anche la base del progetto di shiso mama.
Scoperta via Apartment Therapy, avevo apprezzato il modo di fotografare gli interni della sua casa californiana.
I collages mi sono piaciuti immediatamente.
In occasione del centesimo collage prodotto ha scritto un post ‘dietro le quinte’.
Da tempo voleva fare qualche cosa di creativo, rilassante, veloce ogni giorno. Qualcosa che la facesse concentrare su qualche cosa di creativo. Nessuna opera immortale, solo un progetto breve da risolvere nel poco tempo libero lasciato dal lavoro e da due figli.
Cartoncini bristol bianchi di dimensioni uguali, piuttosto piccoli. Carta da origami, colla e pennello.
Non c’è disegno preparatorio e spesso l’idea iniziale prende una piega diversa e la realizzazione non si risolve in ventiquattro ore.
Tutti i collages sono raccolti qui e sono felice ogni volta che ne vedo comparire uno nuovo.
