It’s important to learn how to use your small bits of time, your five minutes, your ten minutes. All those begin to count up…Don’t wait until your children are grown…Learn how to use your snatches of time when they are given to you. – Ruth Asawa
In spring of 2020, New York City emerged as the COVID epicenter, my family was hunkered down within it. I began to form these compositions at night after putting my kids to bed. I found resonance in the words of Ruth Asawa on stealing personal moments in times of intense parenting. Over the months and long days in our house, this late night shape shifting became a retreat to both confront incoming news and find joy. Now, months post lockdown, I look for time for blobs and sometimes they come looking for me. From Brooklyn, with love. Find the blobs on Instagram.
This month, the Josef Albers wall calendar features four distinct works from 1968-1973. From my understanding, with each piece Albers undertook a singular investigation. Though they may share similar palettes, each piece brings a unique set of color relationships. Set together we see how his process evolved over time.
I also show the snowy January piece. Grateful for yesterday’s flurries, finally.
Follow me as I blob my way through the Albers 2023 wall calendar.
