Judy Watson - Flood
This is what Judy had to say......
Hi, was looking for inspiration & found your blog. Loved the Kandinsky piece - so much apparent confusion with the angles & dramatic lines but also a solid central area.
Made me think of the terrible flood we had here last year so I decided I would use the art work to say something about how surreal that day seemed. So much chaos with so many homes & belongings destroyed, but in the midst of that the flooded street looked quiet & almost serene.
I printed 4 photos of the flooded street, each one with different filters to create more abstract images to reflect how it all seemed unreal. The pics of some of the ruined belongings added the red highlights that stood out in the Kandinsly piece. And of course the clock & hands represent the way the disaster seemed to stretch out in time.
Thanks for getting me motivated.
The journalling reads: a surreal morning... constant rain, kids swimming in the lake that was once a street - strangely beauticul but oh, the chaos left behind, ruined possessions & a lifetime's collections.
Judy , this is an awesome layout, love your clock hands and geometric shapes a well balanced piece of art work........ Its seems to be one thing or the other, floods up north or bushfires down south, there are some dramatic pics in your layout. I hope you were not affected directly by the chaos and devastation!! - Shazza
