Triple Intent 2 – Mixing Mediums

(with Monica Bennett, felt artist and Nancy Silo, ceramic artist)

August 11 – 13, 2017:  Sea Star Vineyards, Pender Island, BC

This year, in addition to creating pieces in response to one-another’s work (see explanation below, under Triple Intent 2016), Monica, Nancy and Sandy decided to create three collaborative pieces.  Each made something in her own medium (felt, ceramic, paint) then handed it on to the next artist, who added to it and then handed to the third artist, who added to it again.  Below are the results, all of which sold in a silent auction (with 50% of the proceeds going to the Pender Island school to buy art supplies for the students).

Above, from left to right:  “Winging It” (initial piece, Monica’s vase, wet-felted by hand – additions: Nancy’s ceramic feathers and Sandy’s acrylic/photo art collage on canvas base); “Into the Deep” (initial piece, porcelain, hand-built by Nancy – additions: Sandy’s acrylic painting and Monica’s wet-felted by hand anemones); “Fall” (initial piece, Sandy’s acrylic on canvas – additions: Monica’s wet-felted by hand cliff  and Nancy’s hand-built ceramic base – photo of “Fall” by Darrel Silo).

Here are a few more images from the show:

Above left, from left to right, Monica’s “Dark Side of the Moon” (wet-felted by hand) and Sandy’s “‘From Up and Down'” (photo art), responses to Nancy’s “Marbled Mist” (smoke-fired ceramic vase). Above right: 3 pieces on plinths: Sandy’s “Watering Can” (mixed media – sold); Nancy’s “Grandma’s Hat” (ceramic bowl – sold); Monica’s “Spring Song” (wet-felted by hand).

Above are 3 of Sandy’s pieces: from left to right, “Interior” (photo art), “Among the Birches” (acrylic on canvas – sold), “Occupied” (photo art).

Triple Intent

3 artists, 3 mediums, 3 interpretations

(with Monica Bennett, felt artist and Nancy Silo, ceramic artist)

August 5 – 7, 2016:  Sea Star Vineyards, Pender Island, BC

This show included a centrepiece featuring an interplay across the different mediums – felt, ceramics and photography. We collectively selected one piece by each of us. Then we each went off on our own to create work in response to the other two. The result was the three groupings shown above (left to right): Monica’s felt sculpture with responses in photography and ceramics; my photo art (“Tear”: Sold) with responses in felt and ceramics (both pieces also now sold); Nancy’s ceramic art with responses in felt and photography.
