Catherine Whall Smith . . . from ONE come MANY!!

Working in a series creates MANY. Right now I have MANY pots filled with blooming cactus plants. All but one of the pots shown below were a part of a single large cactus plant. Recently divided up they now reinforce the idea of ONE can become MANY! In my studio, I usually work in a series and let one piece inform the next to create MANY.

Or I may take a “PART” of a larger piece and come up with a new look. Below left I am pointing to an image that I have used in several pieces.This original piece incorporates one of my photo images of a near by farm, my screen dyed “hand” print, and a lot of slashing with my rotary cutter. NOTE: “Studio Recordings” on “Grab and Go #2” – “Because the original piece had my graphic hand screen print, I need to have some more movement on #2. I decided to use a beautiful black & brown fabric that has a lot of movement in it. This is the point in developing that I start to really like it and get excited about the piece . . . as I “see” where I am going with it.
