Furious Vibe

Furious Vibe by Karen Gadient, 2014

The history of the cosmos
is the history of the struggle of becoming.
When the dim flux of unformed life
struggled, convulsed back and forth upon itself,
and broke at last into light and dark
came into existence as light,
came into existence as cold shadow
then every atom of the cosmos trembled with delight.
— D.H. Lawrence, ‘God is Born’

Artists and Titles: Recycled Surface

The past becomes a texture, an ambience to our present. — Paul Scott

Keith Mills and I decided to try making some artwork with the title decided beforehand, as we both generally create first and name later. We found it to be a challenge; we kept reworking things to fit the title. Eventually, we hit our pseudo-deadline and figured we’d share the results (Keith’s version).

I always create with a concept in mind, but rarely with the exact title rattling around my head. From this experiment, I’ve learned that I’m more organic in my design when I know I can grant the artwork a name once I’ve ‘gotten to know’ it. Maybe we’ll try this idea again, though—or another idea, at least—because it was fun to work in tandem with another artist.

The idea came about when Keith created his ‘Turbulence‘ and I remembered I’d done a ‘Turbulence‘ last year during my NaNoWriMo-style month-o-artwork.
