The Pazyryk project

New lino cuts, I don't know exactly what I will do with them, but I think they will be forming rows in squares. I'll print patches which I will fix on a ground cloth and later quilt. I still find it difficult to reach a kind of unity of style. The elk doesn't fit into the row, so I think there will be some more sketching and research necessary and reading in books on Asian tribes like the Skythians. The idea is to create a piece which reminds of the carpet in the grave of Pazyryk.

I like those new birds very much - they look like road runners, which are native to the american southwest, so possibly they are something else. I think there are possibilities with working into the plumage. Will they be in a row over the tigers?

Eva said...

Yes! And, Susan: I thought of roadrunners indeed when I did the first cuts.

These lino cuts make me smile...yes, especially the road runners. Road Runner is was a cartoon character when I was growing up.

Look forward to see what you do with all of these.

It's funny how tastes can be different. I don't know if the elk "goes" with the others as a part of a whole piece, but I like it as an image.
