The Pulse March 5, 2012Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.
Can you hear the voices? Thoughts, insights, confessions from the creative community sharing ideas, trading secrets, venting frustrations; asking and answering questions such as, “What color rarely shows up in your work?” or “How do you express vulnerability in your art?” Or “What is one current trend that you wish would go away?” As artists, we are curious by nature and there is a longing to see inside the hearts and minds of artistic souls of our own kind. That is the beat of our lives – The Pulse of Mixed Media!”
Join Seth Apter at his blog The Altered Page as he celebrates the release of his book The Pulse of Mixed Media. “31 Artists, 31 Days” is the event taking place throughout March where you’ll be introduced to the 31 spotlight artists featured in his book. In the end of the 31 days, three books will be given away.
I was honored to be asked by Seth to be one of the 31 invited artists to contribute to the book and to participate in this exciting launch blog party. Today is my day. Day 5, and I am excited. I cannot wait to get my copy of the book, to touch it, to turn its pages, to swoon over it.
From what I gathered so far, I concluded that Seth is a lot like me, like you, like all of us, a being with many beautiful contradictions. He is a pack leader, yet a loner. A nature boy, yet urban natured. Organized yet spontaneous. Shy, introverted, yet social, communicative. Driven, mature, yet childlike, playful. These contrasting elements make for a fascinating individual with a definite strong “pulse”. Seth Possesses an immense life force and significant capabilities to connect and collaborate with other like-minded individuals. His disposition to community is commendable and selfless.
I am grateful to Seth, it is through his visual challenges and keen questions that I found a piece of my soul, one I have not known before.
These are my two images appearing in Seth’s book: one is a self portrait and the second answering the question: How do you express vulnerability in your art?
