Orly Avineri Mixed Media Inside Vintage Book Covers
June 27 @ 9:00 am - June 30 @ 4:00 pm| $700
Practices of mixed media art making cultivate insight into the nature of the creative process and its multiple relations to emotional stories of loss and mend. Enriched by self trust and acceptance, images, photos, paper, paint, words, pen, line, thread, and many unconventional tools and materials entwine to make expressive, complex and extremely personal creations. It’s all about one’s willingness to reveal vulnerability and rawness for the sake of true creative freedom, newness, and a deep sense of interconnectedness to all. Experiencing honest and joyous journeys takes precedence over producing beautiful outcomes. Ultimately, this process is about depicting the fluidity of life, about effortlessly carrying one’s self from one place to another and about connecting to a larger world than our own.
In MIXED, we will explore the life and nature of a different substrate, the inside of vintage book covers. These were hard covered books that were once bound a certain way, with signatures and thread, and had a cloth exterior. They had a mysterious life which we will ‘uncover’ and then inject new life into them. We’ll bring in bits and pieces of other elements that have previous stories and histories as well, and create new separate collages from which we’ll draw inspiration for our final book cover pieces. Mixed media processes will be introduced and used to create pieces only you can put together. Your own creative ways and preferences will surely culminate in one of a kind creations that will make us feel lively and content as art making always does.
