was inspired by watching a short film on Gaudi and his love for the
organic. He knew he would not succeed in completion of his dream, but
the struggle to work and create inspires and keeps others working on
it, still, today. Feelings of being boxed in and compartmentalized can,
sometimes, stifle the creative spirit. Artists will drill away at
their own, or society's cubicles. Just as a seedling will find its way
to the light, budding from seed, growing around and through barriers,
the spirit of possibilities will reach for new heights or directions.
Tissue Box to Bird House Bleu
By Kate Robinson
both illustrates and communicates my life story and helps me determine
where I am, where I have been, and to imagine where I may go.
Disparate images and incongruent juxtapositions require the viewer to
“think inside the box.” Collage is a medium that allows for
cross-language, cross-cultural and individual interpretation.
With Tissue Box to Bird House Bleu, I honor the ultimate
thinker-inside-the-box, Joseph Cornell.
Cornell is known for his box assemblages, his love of nature, nostalgia
for childhood and an affinity for shades of blue reminiscent of the
star-studded night sky. This tissue box cover becomes a
imagined bird house with treasures Cornell would appreciate: a tin with
fabric tucked inside, a jar with blue yarn, blue buttons and beads, a
crayon, a muscle shell with a white egg-like stone, and a dragon fly.
