October







There is a harmony
In autumn, and lustre in its sky...
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

October crept into being early Sunday night, with rain and mud and crowds of strangers wreaking havoc in the streets. All in the name of art. Toronto's Nuit Blanche was a complete spectacle and you couldn't help but love it. I hope my photos turn out...

    Mare,

    Another wonderful work. Could it be I like October even more than September? I like the quotes, text, you're finding too. Really feel like you're inside this work, a series. Well done.

    We're looking forward to seeing you and your goodly husband, the I-Man, as well.

    Love,

    Sean

  2. Ah, it seems as though I've fooled you! What you're looking at isn't an official work...each month I create a new header by tossing things (paper, canvas, or in this case thread) onto the scanner. I wrote about the process briefly back in April.

    (In my "September" piece, I just decided to incorporate the text.)

    My creative process seems to be directly tied to the changing seasons, so I made a conscious decision back in January to consider the passage of time as 'content' as well as 'inspiration'.
