fun with images.....

ever feel a little dull in the brain?  here is an exercise i do to loosen me up and to get thinkin' before a creatin' session.  It is working with unusual associations. Like for example, take this aloe plant.   I saw the form as similar to the shape of the letter "Y".  that is why i place them together.
So here is what I do:
I take magazine images or part images work better-
tear them out of the magazine and place the fragment on an ATC (artist trading card) or larger support - then look at it - without using the literal side of your brain,  look for elements in the subject that others would not associate with immediately.   If it is not form, look for associations with color, texture mood.

its a ton of fun.
I would like to announce that at my show at Bard Hall (January 19, 5:45 p.m.- 9 p.m.)in Hillcrest, we will be looking for others who make ATCs to come in and trade with us.  Your ATCs will be curated and placed in the next show.
