I have shared this video by Encaustic Artist Laura Moriarty on my Facebook site, but I have to share it here too because of how strong of a connection I feel to this artist's work. She calls her works "Sculptural Paintings," and they relate to nature through their organic forms and their installation. This is the direction that my own encaustic sculptures are heading - free from the confines of the painting/box format.
This video also inspires me to make some videos of my own process. I take pictures of some of my work in progress, but sometimes I am just in the flow of it forget to document. However, it just looks like Laura Moriarty sets up the recorder on a tripod and comes back over days to work on it. This may be doable for me! Simply turn on the recorder when I go to work and edit it together.
I hope you find this video as fascinating as I do.
Do you videotape the making of your work? If so, how do you think that it affects what others' think or respond to it? If you have any videos of your works in progress, please let me know and I will share them here on my blog.
Happy Art-making and recording! ~ Jaime Lyerly
