Posted in process, Urban Outfitters Exhibition

Progress report: Urban Outfitters gig

This week has been a good and productive week chez Cassandra. I am feeling jazzed about the opportunity to show an entirely new body of work in its entirety. As it is vitally important to me to ensure the overall exhibit is cohesive, I had made great efforts to stick to an exciting, vibrant and well-chosen colour scheme. It’s the zingyness of the turquoise married to tangerine orange that I am finding particularly delightful.

Patterned fabrics have been ordered and received. After hours of trawling the internet I found fabrics that match my shades and are also the geometric prints that I had imagined. ‘Why not print your own?’ you may ask and yes, one of you has asked. Well, I am a great believer in the brilliance of others and I think that I have found fabrics that far exceed anything I could have ever designed myself. So, the pieces will be an amalgamation of my drawing, printmaking, eye-for-the-slabalicious-architecture, colour choice along with found printed fabrics.

I still have one print to create and then that’s me done with the printmaking. My file for this project is full of stacks of my printed designs. I shall then take a few weeks off and come back to the work with fresh eyes and put the pieces together. In the meantime, there is the Hula artworks to begin but now, just now, I think I shall make myself a batch of celebratory French Toast Cupcakes.

Booya!

I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. I also work as a primary school art teacher. I feel lucky that I can divide my time between the two activities.
