Spread 154- Close-ups November 29, 2011Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
An unfamiliar and gripping process it was to scout for tiny little visual worlds within my, in comparison, much larger journal pages for the purpose of designing 100 Moo mini cards. I was gently moving around the Rectangular Marquee tool (in Photoshop) in search for many self-contained macro visual worlds laden with new meaningful perceivable information. An eye-opening, revelatory, and happy-making process. I should do this more often. It’s like diving into a far-and-wide-reaching river, aiming straight to the deep bottom to get a glimpse of a small river rock that is like no other, one with its own story, solely told by me. The mini compositions offered me intimacy I did not notice before in my pages. I tend to look at my art, my days, my everything through wide-angle lenses, from a panoramic view. Sometimes my riverbed appears quite indistinct until I pick one rock up and look at it closely.
