A dream without stars ...

Third item of my series of sentences and second one by Paul Eluard.

This time, I used a flemish bastard script on a background made with bleach.

Cadel O

As I'm waiting for the inspiration to come, I made a cadel letter, just because I like this very much.

This time, I "invented" the letter by reproducing a simple interlacing, repeated until it makes a circle. To see the whole of it, click here.

Every angel is terrible

My latest work gave me the idea of working on a complete set of simple sentences. It's quite a challenge for me as I always found difficult to layout short texts, even more challenging by the size I decided to use for all of the items of this set (approx. 30x10cm).

So here is the second item of the set, a sentence by Rainer Maria Rilke, taken from the first of the Duino Elegies (I already worked on the same text, using a more consequent fragment, I really love it).

I first wrote the text using a gothic script before copying it on another paper by transparency and finished by decorate with patterns which resemble feathers.

I'm quite happy with the overall result and I'm already thinking to the next challenge.

Only throw angels to devils

As promised, a picture of one of the works done during the exhibition in Coulon.

It's a sentence by Paul Eluard, written with pigments and gum before being decorated with ... surprise ... filigrees :-)
