Still running -

"With A Gleam in Her Eye"
digital collage by Mick Mather
There's an expressionist quality about this piece that continues to shake me each time I look at it. I love it one minute and hate it the next. On the bright side, the power it holds to pull me back in over and over is a good thing ... I think. :)

A death mask or a hollow ghost.

Well said ... both of those ideas occur to me also. Proving that great minds think alike! :D

In HER eye. I'm sure it's a male with a big white moustache.

Hmm, now that you've planted the seed, I can see Mark Twain in this. As for Susu seeing a man in a white moustache? I don't know, she's sounding terribly lonely again lately ... I suppose it must be the season.

susupetal:
I knew that you'd think so! :D

Well, aren't we in an abstract mood of late? It seems to me your last few pieces have a more, shall we say "contemporary" feel to them, or maybe it's just me? Not that that's bad mind you, it's not. Btw, do you print your work out? Or is it always in digital form, just curious.

I have been doing a lot more contemporary work, I can't really explain why though. In addition, I'm moving quickly into the arena of sculpture with many of my recent land art works - a delayed path of almost 30 years while mastering and concentrating on printmaking. As regards my digital work, I do have images reproduced, but only in regard to a sale or an exhibition opportunity.
