FINAL KISS-Providence RI & Korea

Relationships are created within the ephemeral fragility of existence.

One is shaped and molded by that person(s) you can no longer reach that haunts your soul.

Be it physical distance, miscommunications, or death you are left with a negative space you yearn  sooth.

Please reflect and place your kiss on one of the small round mirrors. Lipstick is provided for you to record you kiss. Take all the time you wish to reflect upon the lost relationship. When ready place your final kiss on the rising wall of mirrors to that person you can no long reach. *Carol Scavotto*

OUTGROWTH

*72 March cover

There is an organic unfolding as I continue to research and respond to my social environment.

The titles in this series are as much a part of the work as the visual.

The boards are wallpapered with the narrative reflecting the format in which they were researched.

The confines of the boards have become irrelevant. The work is leaving the page in the form of irregular edges, base, relief and fabric.

“MORNING CONTEMPLATION”

I am continually asked why I change medium and style so frequently in my artwork. “Just stay with one thing and you will become more marketable”

I have been consistent with collage work for several years now yet as they evolve the look and my message change.

Visual is my language of how I both process and communicate with the world. All the styles, methods and materials I have worked with through out my life are all just right there to be used as needed. (years of work =years of working methods 😉

The visual changes are not intended to confuse you my collectors.

As an artist I am responding directly to my environment and the world from my vantage point.

How can that not possible change?

My current collage work is steeped in social/global issues…Hours of research go into them.

Yet today I really just needed to revisit my older Technique of a simple ink line drawing to express a thought.

Thank you for letting me share it with you 😉 morning contemplation 17190978_10208157854683137_7230046583650805986_n

JOURNALING

My collage work is a direct visual response to current news stories. My previous series were  taken from the NY times and the Wall Street journal. Beginning with the election of the new American president my work has taken on a more studied persona. Quite unintentionally the brightly colored layer of the collage’s has fallen to the wayside. The issues are still based upon the same 2 newspapers but they have become a springboard from which I do a great deal of research.

In part this series is addressing how intertwined the politics of different nations are creating our world.

But on a more personal level the work address the impact each individual’s actions have in  creating  the harmony or discord of our environment. This series has a great deal more visible text including my own journaling. The titles are VERY important.  I have purposely written my text as one long run on word. It is possible to read what I have written yet my goal is to leave you the viewer room to contemplate your own personal views.

FINAL KISS PROJECT

This project made was 1st shared in Korea at the CICA museum during their Conceptual show.

Relationships are created within the ephemeral fragility of existence.

One is shaped and molded by that person(s) you can no longer reach that haunts your soul.

Be it physical distance, miscommunications, or death you are left with a negative space you yearn  sooth.

On one of the small mirrors please reflect and share your final kiss to the rising wall to that person you can no long reach.

ONE IS!

One is born landing on a spot of the color wheel

One adorns the hue associated with the color.

One’s outer casing becomes one’s identification card.

One’s bondage is roped and pinned via the visual.

One is more than one….one is alway more…..
