Learn about Shibui Found Image Art here . Learn its foundations, Shibui as an original art form, and as a great art therapy tool. Learn about classes in instruction & an instructional manual. (These are to be announced in the future.) Interested? Email me at pejj@anisettestdios.com .

I began the development of Shibui Found Image Art in 2011. Its purpose is as an original art form, and education in its foundation work be adopted by others that they may use it as their own, and as an art therapy tool. The future plans are The ability to purchase an instruction manual and teaching presentations. Online classes to be announced. Being a part of a control group has open enrollment. The goal of the group is to create your version of Shibui Found Image Art, and we share in the development. This gives me an idea of what others can do. I am looking for people to join the group who create digital art. There is a need for people who can create a form of digital Shibui for paralyzed clients. Keep in mind that Shibui foundations begin with action art, then become found image art. Shibui lends itself to be a problem-solving puzzle during its creative processes. It leads you through the imaginative and intentional parts of that process.

Shibui is designed to help the world!

The control group on Facebook is international because it is on Facebook. One of my instructors plans to take her type of Shibui Found Image Art to cancer patients. Another to the elderly in a nursing home. Another is developing a children’s book project. Others do it as an original art form. What would you like to do with it?

Art is wonderful but it is also a business, I advocate learning about the business end of art. Listen to Catherine Orer at: <https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-artist-entrepreneur-podcast/id1518318244&gt;

What I have done is given Shibui terminology and applicable techniques. An example of necessary dialog is as follows. There is no under structure with a Shibui. That understructure is imagined, completed through the creative process of Shibui. When making the foundation certain things can be done to help the possibilities of the foundation. This said Shibui relies on action art which is always random, and abstract. These work to create the illusion of realism through intention. The action art has commonalities where a whole something or more than one something can be found as the event within the field of spatters, drips, drops, created runs, blotting, bleeding blowing wet medium, and absorbing material impressions.

You see: Watercolors, blown, in runs across the page, salt as an absorbing material. Yellow splatters and blotting in this image of a foundation. Once dry its turning the page, studying the foundation to find what is there.

Examples of Shibui Foundations

A simple foundation. What does it look like to you?
This is what I found. Notice how the images fit the watercolor? (Above). This has been worked with a bit of pastel pencil.

Once the image has been found, the first steps are to work the found image by doing “simple line drawing”. What you find may need some help. For example: A second wing or foot. This is called intentional work. This is done by adding what is needed to make it work as a whole found object. (This also means creating something different in different areas of the whole image. Because you are drawing what you find, as you find it. It is letting the Shibui tell its own story. This said you will be good at finding things that have relationships. For example, if it looks like fish, something else can be turned into something that lives or is in that same environment. What you have are different areas that may have different kinds of things they can be turned into; but that you can make relate even in abstracted ways.

Shibui created by Jacobie Pouliot. Jacobie made this work as an underwater scene by building in plant life, smaller fish. berries, the lake, or the ocean floor. This is unfinished at this time.
Here Jacobie Pouliot has found something that suggest the bones of a boat under the water.
What we have here with these is a triptych. They were made at the same time. Jacobie has taken them this far, so they work good as examples. You can study the lines and see what was added to make the image work.

A different kind of aquatic puzzle. Can you find the bird?
You can find something like this, and if you stick with it a whole image can evolve.
With this Shibui Found Image, Kosher salt has been used and allowed to stay. The salt will continue to grow. It is very beautiful in person.
This is one of my favorite images. Note how the outline of the bird makes her happen.
When matted and framed Shinui just POP!
With design work by making lines as with stained glass windows, Shibui easily takes on those characteristics.

I find myself falling into designing the shibui image. You will likely know if you get that or any other urge. Just go with it!
