Lookey here! Louise Nevelson

These are two quick shots of an out-of-order arrangement of the plaster cast I posted on July 15. After lots of experiments with layers of color, and a lovely visit to the MFA in Boston's Egyptian section, pure white really is the best way to go. Now I can really concentrate on developing the images and textures and letting that speak for itself.

THEN, I remembered! OF COURSE!!! I'm doing Louise Nevelson! Love it or leave it we are all just reinventing the wheel, aren't we? I used to teach a high school art project based on her assemblages, so I decided to peruse a few of her works today.

This is an embossing- I just love the absence of color apart from the contrast provided by subtle shadows.
