I just replaced my original Viza bag that I got to use as a diaper bag when Timothy was born. It has stayed on my shoulder that entire time (yes it's a purse, deal with it!), it's still useable but has a couple of little wear-holes where the pen and pencil go. Timothy is 14 years old, btw. It's got a little lanyard for a wallet or keys, lots of pockets to tuck things away into, and enough capacity to hold a DSLR & an extra lens. It's great!
Celia Pym Process and ways of recording activities are central to her work. The holes in people's clothes, the stories that accompany them; repairing these holes and returning the mended garments are all represented in her approach. She is finding ways to represent the spaces the body occupies, the tenderness of touch and the ways of going about daily life.
"well loved painting pants, just like me, I use my pants as a wiping/brush cleaning/blending tool, and I keep them until they crack and have holes..... love! Heartbreaking to have to throw them away, so I save them for a possible art project since often they are quite beautiful."
This door has Hobbit written...extremely small on the underside of the lower board. If only I could actually get that close, this door creates so much excitement about what lies within the walls. The circle is unexpected, yet the wear of the wood evokes a feeling of nostalgia, perhaps for that of the world of whim and fantasy I grew up seeking.
