Blog move.From Whitney's Weird Stuff to A Strange Artworld

 
The time has come, my friends, for a bit of 're-branding' . . . . a face lift, a name change. Not me you understand but this blog though, goodness knows, I could do with a facelift!. Having wandered aimlessly round in circles with my art and my blogging I finally feel I know where I'm going with it all. Onwards and upwards!

So . . . . astrangeartworld.blogspot.co.uk is where I will be blogging from now on. All my old posts are there ( fingers crossed ) so it may look familiar though it will take me a little time to get it all looking the way I want. Arranging the blog furniture.  Please do follow me there, those of you who read regularily. It'll only take a second and I would love to see your little faces in the sidebar!

The name of my etsy shop, Strangeartworld , is the new name for everything.
Just a few more changes to make and it will all be done . . . .  Moo Printing is having a Spring Sale and I've got new business cards all ready and waiting to be done!

Ideas of Alienation - Experimental Digital Art



 The Landscape of Nostalgia idea led me to think about alienation . . . . not that much of a reach really. I try not to get too hung up on the idea behind a piece. Really I've tried not to make art 'about' anything but it's kind of crept back in. Lets just say that these pieces have a feeling of alienation about them, a kind of displacement and leave it at that. I promise not to talk about a 'dialogue' or a 'journey' so as not to get too w***y about it.

 

You have to admit they are pretty spooky looking. I wanted a feeling of near recognition about them, elements that you can almost identify but that lie just beyond your conscious reach.

Prints of these have come out really well. Didn't want to go for just black and white so the background/light colour is a very pale dusty kind of pink which contrast well with the deep saturated areas of black. Always print on a matte paper which makes all the difference with digital .


Sod's Law that I run out of inks at this point. These will be listed in my Whitney's Art Etsy shop as soon as the new inks arrive. Will post that on my facebook page as soon as so go on and hit that 'Like' button if you want to keep up with that kind of thing. I must admit I'm not as focused on this kind of thing as, perhaps, I ought to be . . . .  I'd rather be making art.
