Description This collection of digital drawing I call DIGITAL FOLK ART because they were created using primitive paint and an obscure program which came embedded into my first computer. Many late into wee hours of the morning, learning to control the mouse became an obsession.
Josie Taglienti, Phoenix Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement Creating works on paper is about silent words that flow in and out; a feeling. Communication with the paper begins. The paper resists. I scribble on it until it responds. The story begins.I do not have a clue about its direction. When it begins to speak I can only follow its guidance. Often, the piece needs space apart from me, therefore, I work on several at the same time. When one calls back, I respond. I have to be listening with my eyes.
Egyptian papyrus and Japanese paper as ground is a lovely addiction; emotional sustenance. For mindless drawing, I love digital (mouse ) drawing in primitive paint .
