Drawing Across Used Journal Pages

A little bird told me about an upcoming exhibition in London featuring Fran Giffard's body of work that layers the wild over the domestic. After she filled up her personal moleskine journal with writing, Giffard did some repurposing and began to paint birds over all of its used pages with aquarelle, gouache, and graphite pencil. The result is a vivid safari adventure through an unexpectedly personal landscape.

While birdwatching, I caught sight of wedding dates, grocery lists, vacation plans, even diary entries. Weirdly intimate information about a stranger, which makes me feel like I’m flipping through something I know I shouldn’t be looking at. Sometimes the birds are painted alongside the text, carefully leaving the words unobscured. Other times, their plumage covers entire chunks of writing and I realize how nosy I am being trying to read someone else's journal. That's something you're not supposed to do, isn't it? Too bad, because I can't look away.

Rorschach Test for Doodlers

Rorschach Test for Doodlers

The See . Saw series by L Filipe dos Santos consists of before and after pictures of his sketchbook. The "before" pics look a lot like ink blots, but they are actually gouache stains that the artist draws over. It's intriguing that he includes a photo of the stains before he drew over them, because it lets me first imagine what I would see in them myself. That makes it all the more interesting to compare how Santos' creative interpretation of the stains is so very different from my own. What do you see?

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

Adrienne Vita's ink, watercolor, acrylic and gouache illustrations capture and promote everything good and true -- coexistence, wanderlust, individuality, friendship and family. Her beautiful menagerie of wild animals are seeped in color and pattern-- they're warm and bright and comforting in image and message. Adrienne says each piece comes from her intuition and meditations. Viewers can't help but become admirers, and admirers can't help but feel a sense of peace. Thank you to UncommonGoods for making the acquaintance.
