Art: Absorbing the Apology by Artist Joanne Parise
These pieces involve multiple steps before they arrive in a place that feels each one of them is finished. Each one begins with a watercolor resist process as its base. It is during this first phase that the abstract patterns develop. Once the bases are developed and dry, I choose the backgrounds for specific pieces. The second step which happens quite separately from the first, involves creating small collages made with painted work, paper scraps, anything I may have or find thatís right. The collages are assembled and coated. The third step involves choosing which collage piece to match with each of the watercolor pieces. My work tends to range in size from one and half inches by two inches, to 3 x 3. I have created some work that is quite large for me, up to 5 x 7, done for a specific commission, but I gravitate to working in the smaller sizes. I enjoy finding and looking closely at things Small, that may go unnoticed be it in art or nature, . Sometimes a final step involves embellishing the piece with fiber or hardware, often silver, or another three dimensional element of natural material.
