A few hours after I published the post on Emma Fielden’s ‘Infinity‘ exhibition my vague subconscious ephemeral thoughts have continued to percolate and become a little more defined.
The thoughts are still near random, and most certainly nothing close to eloquent, though I think I’m seeing a pattern … and I’d like to write them down so I don’t misplace or forget them.
When thinking more about the essence that is pulling me so strongly towards Emma’s drawing work, I continue to gravitate towards the idea of repetition and dedication … and it’s almost a surprise to me, but it has turned me back towards my woven silver and paper work.
I miss doing it; I love the meditation of it; the repetitive movements that can never be done unthinkingly but require concentration at every moment to prevent error and maintain as much consistency as possible.
I feel a desire to take out my weaving equipment again … just for a play …
oooh, you have no idea how my heart has sung at this idea!
Another few hours later …. and I’ve only just now realised how the grid is strikingly akin to the woven material I create (when I use paper the same thickness as the flat wire).
Dear Muse … is that you?
