Creativity at Rest

05a_Joy Kirkwood_Creativity at Rest_20X10X1_mixed media_201305b_Joy Kirkwood_Creativity at Rest_close-up_20X10X1_mixed media_2013Creativity at Rest is a spontaneous paring of an unresolved doll with an unresolved abstract painting and together they ‘worked’. I especially enjoy how placing the doll in the middle of the painting brought out elements I hadn’t seen before and gave a dreamy Degas’ Waterlilies feel to the art.

Some of the objects used in this doll include: a covered stone for her face, a crystal placed at heart centre, copper mesh for her body, and lots of rainbow fabric, ribbons, and stitching to bring it all together.
