Spread #135 – Underground Art June 23, 2011Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Art-journaling explores alternative forms of artistic expression. It exposes raw emotion and passion for what lies beneath the surface in direct connectivity to humanity rather than artists community. Disclaiming pretense to impressiveness it aims to express the hidden corners, subterranean worlds, unseen before layers of its creator. On the fringes of traditional art it does not concern itself with artistry. It has relations with the ephemeral and the constant. Art journaling avails all materials, tools, and found objects for the interplay between concealing and revealing of visual, textual, and coded information, exposing solitary and social processes of change. Being vague and muddy, then clear and done, an art-journaler shimmies back and forth on the pages of a journal, not to be more known, but to know more, to feel more, to be lively and well.
