feeling modest







heARTbeatgal’s contribution for To The Power of N

thirteen squares of beautiful paper

from my local vietnamese haberdashery

the artist, Joel Lambeth, is seeking thirteen identical bits of “something”

for inclusion in the artists’ materials of his collaborative collage project

how could i not collaborate?

they are en route to australia now, along with my good vibes



it may only be recently that i call myself artist first, after mother

more than three years now that i have been compelled to create

but it was always quietly present

i remember well the feeling painting this watercolour portrait of my mother

memory fails me, but this was a decade or so ago

it was the same deeply satisfying creative bliss i tap into regularly now

glimpses of what i now know will forever be with me

i thank the spirits for painting


the world is a town…

thanks again to the interwebs

i found another member of my tribe

a collaborative collagist

letting go



…when n equals twelve!

To The Power Of N is an ongoing creative experiment

orchestrated by australian collage artist Joel Lambeth

he chooses other collage artists to create unique collage artworks

using only  a specific set of materials provided

(exhibition catalogue 2011)

This time ’round, to the Power of N is seeking twelve artists

exponentially more brilliant!

math references and all, this is my kind of heART!!

thanks to the inter-webs for helping me to locate

these other members of my tribe

excellent fun!
