I’ve always wanted to do one of those photo-a-day type of projects or in this case, a rubbing every week for a year. So I came up with the “Wedneday Rub” since Wednesday is Hump Day and the art of rubbing things is called Frottage. I gotta admit, I love the double entendre. -It fits right in with my sense of humor and style of art. It’s an intuitive thing more than anything, since I love texture! I’m a mixed-media artist fascinated with the way things FEEL! I paint on wood, leather and velvet and nail down beer cans and bottle caps, sequins and staples. The idea of rubbing things came to me as a way to loosen up my process by allowing myself an opportunity to play with an idea and see it thru for an entire year. These will be loose exercises done spontaneously every Wednesday, in other words a creative play-date for a year. This project is all about process and hopefully opening up to seeing things in a new ways. It’s about ideas and exploration and the adventure of interacting with my environment thru art. The hunt for texture is on … now let’s Rub it!
