Spread 196 – Tribal Markings January 18, 2013

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

196- Tribal MarkingsMoved by my tendencies to create stronger when in a group. There is something about the creative energy of others that boosts your own. There is something to be said about leaving very personal markings on a page when you are sitting very close by like-minded individuals who do exactly the same. I know it’s not for everyone but for me there is nothing more igniting than a collective creative power.

I love all your work, Orly, but especially love this one. It speaks to me!

I always find that collective thing daunting and disempowering. I love seeing what others do but I must do mine on my own.

I have not created around others since art school…i tend to like to create on my own, but i am a totally different person now than i was then, so it might be fun to give it a try! I can definitely see how it could spark your imagination!

awesome art…love the flow of it!

you’re right and this is a very strong image.

It’s Cross Pollination!

I agree! I love the collective experience….of course one that also includes a potluck! But I also love lots and lots of quiet and alone time. I think one feeds the other. And vice versa.

Lovely work Orly. I find the presence of others distracting, and work best alone.

I love this spread. I tend to like both, working alone and in groups. Personally it’s taken a lot of work to get to this point. I can understand both sides of this coin.

I used to be able to create only by myself but now I enjoy both. Knowing that you created you last spread in a group is truly inspiring. Something about it moves me deeply.

I love how your two page journal spread is united. There is so much flow from left to right. Great piece Orly!

12. Monica - January 19, 2013

THIS is a powerful spread! Love the richness of imagery and color =-)

I’ve been working with the organic (interior) body and the heart center myself this week. You are truly showing us how open hearted you are! it’s beautiful––as are you.

14. Julia - January 21, 2013

I get my morning cuppa and settle in for a feast for the eyes, and you never disappoint….so lovely, and strong, mesmerising, and your message hits home, and makes me realise myself more. I work better on my own, but maybe working on my own all the time, is why I dont move forward as fast as I could in evolving my art…or myself….?

15. hali - January 22, 2013

love this. this spread really speaks to me on many levels and layers. and your words couldn’t be truer… i think more of us are feeling the call to get together and create in that energy.

16. cindy woods - January 23, 2013

Love this, Orly. Can’t wait to see you, and for the ‘collective creative power’ to take hold at AAJ next month!

17. Effy Wild - January 24, 2013

This really speaks to me. There is something very intimate about the ‘inside out’ view we’re getting ~ the rib cage, the bones exposed. Love it.

18. Seth - January 25, 2013

Such a powerful page — a perfect example of the power of the creative collective!

That’s sooo true! I love the comment that it’s cross pollination!
