A peek at the writing for the manual. Getting a good beginning feels great!
Introduction & Technique
Shibui Found Image Art begins with action art and then becomes found image art. As with the name given to Shibui, action art describes what kind of art Shibui is as the foundation is created. Action Art is obvious; I say this because those actions taken have to do with the mechanics of one’s own body and its involvement in creating a specific kind of art. Such actions involves pre-thinking the actions to be taken; it involves understanding the likelihood or probabilities of the actions to be taken. In addition, the mind’s predictive choices come from the information the brain stores. These are components of problem-solving which is the creative process for Shibui Found Image Art.
Regarding Shibui there is limited manipulation when it comes to the implementation of using objects such as brushes, bottles, and other implements used to drop amounts of the wet medium onto the surface of the wet paper. The items a Shibuiest can use for their creative processes of creating the Shibui foundation are endless.
I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.”
Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
