The Power of Painterly Play
Accessing Your Magick
ARTIST MOLLIE KELLOGG DEMOS AT FOOTHILLS ART ASSOCIATION
On October 2nd following the Foothills meeting, Mollie Kellogg will demonstrate the multi-step process she uses to create the “magickal” abstract backgrounds that serve as the under-painting for her Incognito Witches. The “blocking-in” and “pouring” techniques she will share encourage the artist to play, pretend, make a pretty mess, while letting go of controlling the outcome.
“As I circled the wet painting dropping in a splash of paint from a condiment dispenser, a pinch of glitter, tossing in a few foil stars, a sprinkle of watercolor powder, topped off with little hearts when there is love in the on-canvas relationship -- it is not lost on me that I am concocting a painterly potion that will become the magical realm from which my witches emerge. I imagine the foil and the additional dots of paint around their heads leading up off the top of the canvas are their spiritual or energy connection to the universe.” -- Mollie Kellogg on her “pouring” process
Mollie's mixed-media, award-winning figurative paintings have sold internationally and have been shown in galleries throughout the United States. See paintings and videos at molliekellogg.com. Contact Mollie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
