Good Morning! Coffe at the right. Waiting for the mail carrier, and settling into writing. It is a beautiful day here in Maine. Cold, but we are past the blizzard that left the world all white! I think some toast with fig jam on it will be very nice!
It’s research and writing today, and a to-do list to work through. I am beginning to change things up again. The changing up will bring the library table into the living room.
Today I am researching the field event theory and how it applies to Shibui Found Image Art. The field event theory works like this. If you were to consider wallpaper. There is usually a big repeated pattern and supporting smaller things around these repeating patterns. The big things act like events, and the smaller things become the field. This is true of Shibui. In the above Shibui Image, can you find the events? They stand out. All but the orbs are Shibui’s foundation. The field appears as a world where the events float in it.
It was interesting to put a frame on this image. It ended up being a unique frame with burnt orange and green on the frame.
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
