Check Out This Excerpt from Objects of Reflection:
OK, dangles, for lack of a better term, describes those combined, smaller elements that add lingering layers and added interest to your work. I use them in every piece that I create in some form or fashion. It’s not that more is more, but for me it helps to create the story with more symbols. They are usually haphazardly concocted with ribbons, torn fabric swatches, twine or waxed linen, then scrunched and bundled in a free-form way. It’s hard to describe exactly how I go about making these—I just try not to make it look too planned or thought out, if that makes any sense! Take a look at the photos for a better understanding of this "dangle" process. When I add elements to these dangles, I usually try to incorporate the use of color, repetition and/or textures.
A Word From the Author:
"The thoughts and experiences that I share here are straight from my heart. They provide little windows into my life’s journey so far. I am always searching for more meaning in my artwork, and in my life. I have found that when I am willing to ask myself what is true for me, my artwork uncovers its authentic message. I have always loved to create little altars, still lifes and vignettes throughout my home and in nature. They have represented reflection and a tangible display of the stories that I have tucked away in my memories. This style of artwork encompasses this same spirit. It is my hope that you will find within these pages challenges, inspiration and insights that will offer new directions for your artwork. It’s within each one of us to challenge ourselves to nourish and trust our own uniqueness. It’s time to embrace your storyteller!" — Annie Lockhart
