Making Our Bones: Work session #4

Today Arla and I completed the large mixed media piece–primarily bones and paint.  For lots of details on our collaboration, google ARla K. Foster, go to her wordpress blog and check out the work so far.  While you’re at it, check out Ricardo Olvera, the third in our collaborative triad.  Last night I added the final touches to our “Artists’ Statement”, a three person self-portrait begun by Ricardo in Nevada, continued by ARla, and now completed by me.  I believe as I type this, Arla may already have the photos up.

The bone sculptures, the artist statement, the swords, and the big piece will all be on view at the Bennington Arts’ Guild from Nov 17 through the end of December.  Nov 20, from 5-8 will be the artists’ reception at the Guild.  More info and photos to come.

I’m so busy working on everything I haven’t had time to sit down and communicate the process, but I have been keeping journal notes and ARla’s been taking photographs.  It’s an exciting collaboration and has me re-reading my dog-eared copy of Women Who Run WIth The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  I recommend the rest of you wild women re-read yours again, too.

I haven’t even measured this yet, but it’s something like 3 feet by 7 or 8 feet.
