On September 12th we had a nice get together and it was a great way to start this new chapter of my creative life, I hope to continue doing art and sharing with you the process, ideas and results.
If you have the chance to visit Fair Bean, please do it and let me know what you think.
About Tellers of Tales
This series of works started by chance, after a lucky find at the “books for sale” in my neighborhood library. Tellers of Tales was a book published in 1939 in New York by Doubleday, Doran & Company, the book is a selection of 100 short stories and was selected by William Somerset Maugham.
The pages of the book have a double functionality as the medium and also as the inspiration for the art. Usually I use the title of the story plus some highligthed words to create a character or image. Also, I try to stay away from the original story itself because I don’t want the artwork to become an illustration of the tale. This way my intention is to create a more ambiguos visual narration.
In these pieces you will find little phrases or connected words. In my personal experience there are some powerful phrases that have a “special” sound or images, such as “There were twenty-six of us, twenty-six living machines” or “like a knife in my throat.”
