As I glued on the last few letters this afternoon, it was very satisfying to finally see my first ALaW alphabet come together. I was fortunate that the presentation has fallen into place as the alphabet evolved; the only thing left to do at the end of the day was to mount the letter-filled Canson Mi-Teintes onto a piece of 50x50-centimeter board.
My favorite letters from the final six weeks (since I last posted) are 'V' and 'X'. When I mis-glued one of the letters in the second row, it threw off my original plan for the positioning of the letters (which I wanted to relate to not just those next to it, but also the letters above and below). As a result, the earlier letters are a little more crowded than I would have liked but, all in all, the alphabet seems to capture the spirit of what I had in mind when I first began.
I have really enjoyed watching all of your imaginative alphabets emerge during the first half of 2012, and look forward to seeing what unfolds over the next six months...
This is SO amazing! Modern, classic & very unique!ReplyDelete
so nice, and I love the colors you used !ReplyDelete
Makes me think of the collage work of Cecil Touchon. Lovely.ReplyDelete
Stunning final project - abstract, yet not, recognizable letters, yet not....makes for a dramatic, graphic piece of art. You should be proud.ReplyDelete
So stylish! I love it.ReplyDelete
What a fabulous outcome Lisa - it works beautifully! I love how you can still recognise the letters, but they are there, and not there, kind of thing. Elegant, stylish, graphic...gorgeous!ReplyDelete
This is stunning. The colours have an Italian sensibility to them, a warmth and glow.I agree with the above comments, that the letters are there and not there, A graphic piece scaled back to the edge of recognition which is so difficult to do but you have succeeded wonderfully, and as a whole they take on another dimension as an art piece.ReplyDelete
