tube of magic

in July i had a tiny bit of time and i attended an abstract art course taught by a guy who i wont mention incase he doesnt want his name splattered across the internet. his classes were recommended to me by a friend who really rates him. i wasnt disappointed. his teaching style is half art half comedy which is a fine balance. it got off to a good start when he stabbed our attendence into the register with a fork and i knew i was in the right place.

we spent six weeks making a cardboard sculptury type thing and created a large abstract drawing from it (silly me hasn't got any photographs of either) it was all based on Kurt Schwitters' work and ideas of Mertz (that might be spelt wrong). anyway i gave my drawing/paintingy type thing to a very dear friend (who might also like to remain nameless) and yesterday it arrived back in a tube. He'd added drawing, collage (i keep finding bits of things I've made and sent him in the past) and stitch to create a magical painting which i absolutely adore.













a collaboration i didn't even know i was part of
THANK YOU R

It must be lovely to get your work collaborated and find your pieces attached by other artist. To me somehow this reminded Klee's painting. Beautiful colour. xm

I have Kurt Schwitters book titled MERZ and I love it as I consider him the father of collage.. you have a very colorful creative one here.
