Sacred Altering: Adventures in Experimental Art
by Stacy Wills
I recently shared this on my other blog, but thought I would share it here as well. It's a little video of my recent experimental artwork. Most all of the source images came from my existing alcohol inks on yupo, which I then played with digitally - or as I like to call it: sacred altering. Sacred altering is about transformation...it is about having taken something as far as it can go within the scope of one's own natural ability using traditional mediums and then traveling beyond that limitation in a different realm or medium - in this case, digital - to bring forth something entirely new. For me, it's not so much about trying to debate the merits of "traditional" ways of art-making with digital ways...but rather, it's about satisfying that creative urge, and finding new ways to create art that speaks on an intuitive level, allowing the viewer to decide what it is...or how it makes them feel. Enjoy!
