Lansdale Fun A Day 2013

I am hosting Lansdale’s Fun A Day show again this year. Fun A Day is an international event in which artists create something everyday for the month then get together and display their creations. Today is the 14th day of January, which means I have 14 collages completed and various other things for the show to create a fun atmosphere. I decided to make more photo collages similar to the ones I made for my dad for Christmas. A few days ago, I hit a slump in which I wanted to give up on the collages but I kept at it and I’m liking them. I’ve had a few other artists come join me in my studio and that has helped keep my motivation up, I also have a new model that really enjoy working with. I have lots of work that I have posted on this blog yet (hopefully I get to that soon). Here are the first 13 days of collages.13days

Today’s collage is still laying flat to dry. This is a pretty difficult project, I get kind of emotional looking at old photos and thinking about mortality. So a few of the collages are not what I set out to make but they were much needed comic relief for myself. The point of this is to have fun and enjoy our work. My studio is a mess with so many projects going on. Schwa is working on his projects in here too behind the sheets. We are learning how to share materials, it’s fun having artistic partners to work with.

    Looking good Amy! Keep up the good work! I find myself enjoying the projects I am working on even though it is a challenge to work on something everyday but am doing big things, small things and ongoing things. I am so happy you brought Fun A Day to Lansdale!
