The Same But Different

Drawing on the iPad is a LOT of fun, but the photos I send back to my computer are not very high in resolution.

Floating Forms

Luckily, I have techniques to deal with that, if I think the artwork merits being dragged through the birth canal, via my printer, into the physical world. It doesn’t start kicking and screaming until I stitch into it, glue it to a substrate, throw paint, inks, mediums, pencil crayons (and whatever other materials I lay my hands on) at it.

Then it becomes a whole other kind of animal. The two are related ~ the digital and the version on canvas ~ but they live in alternate realities.

The same, but different.


About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Hello…. as someone who admires your work but does not own an iPad, and probably won’t anytime in the near future, I have to ask how it adds to your work. Lots of experimentation, quickly modified or erased, no mess, when you’ve got something you like… move on! Can’t you get the same results on any laptop or computer? Does iPad offer a superior platform, or is it just a matter of portability? When I am using the computer I am tied to this big desk, but somehow that adds a much needed discipline of time and place, and my family doesn’t interrupt me here… both advantages I need and would lose with portable computing.
