Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

i knew it, i knew it....all nice things for different reasons (which is you know, very cool - because you cover so many bases) but number one up there.....

oh SOPHIE! OH MY!!!!!!!! so wish i could see it in person. such a sensitive and dynamic investigation.

and the last one - the post card design - though i have seen it or similar before - still very lovely feel like i'm looking through a microscope or telescope at the cosmos. rock on girlfriend!

Made my day Mlle Bourgoeis!!!
You are good at finding words to give that "look at it from this perspective perspective.... thank you you! I'm grateful... its been a process... a leap of faith to go it this way... not stay safe and neatly predictable.
the microscope has had its way with my imagination...
yes... that postcard has an image i worked into a little more hence its familiar and yet not quite... you're spot on! telescope too... all those new science mags i read when I was sub. teaching back in the noughties and needed some serious distraction ...nothing like macro & micro to do that!
smiling here!

'Untitled as yet' 1 & 2 are wonderful - you're a master of colour and form!
And thanks for posting those incredible Small Worlds images over on 'homage to the seed' - I'm not feeling very eloquent at the moment so all I'll say is WOW!

Mary Zeran said...

Okay, so I am totally blown away! The top two amaze me with the amount of time, energy, and focus that they must have taken to make!!!

Quilts, plaid,patterns,seeds, DNA, bacteria, and viewing it all through a screen or lattice.

I like Mlle. Paradis' microscope idea. Makes so much sense with the photos of the seeds. Then I start thinking about microscope slides. Those itty bitty worlds that exist. A place that the human eye can't see. Lands just waiting to be discovered.

Thank you for letting us into your world Sophie!

Uta Heidelauf said...

All that busyness is paying off!

It's amazing when the doing takes hold, the mind get a chance to get still and we become a creative conduit, and beauty, joy and perfection just pours out of us.

I love these new outpourings.

Hello Suzanne,
Thank you for delightful comments that are appreciated indeed... Touching!
WOW is most adequate I think... sometimes that's enough!
It was great to be sent that link!

Hi Mary,
really liked reading your reading of that larger work... ..do you remember the plaids (which I called tartans)... and the various things I put up in the studio when I moved into it... and commented at that time that I had not done with that work even though it was from 3 or more years ago...I'd had a huge series of disruptions which split my studio life into "before" and "after" and this recent studio opportunity has allowed for time and space to go back and pull key things from then into the present work...so you named those things well!
And you know what happens when you start focusing on certain things ... you see it everywhere... that microscope viewing was so enthralling that its with me all the time at the moment...
thanks for your generous comments and for coming into this world today!
S xx



Uta,
lovely words...thank you for visiting and leaving me these juicy thoughts... your feedback is really valued ... its been good t have a chance to do the outpouring things I can tell you!
best,
S
