Sketchbook Project 2012





This is another little sketchbook I just finished for the 2012 Sketchbook Project. Since I only had about 3 days to work on it (due to pure procrastination), the work is quite minimal. I mostly used acrylic paint, despite the very small dimension of the book. You can see the entire book at the Art House Coop website or my Facebook page.

The Sketchbook Project









This is a sketchbook I created for the Brooklyn Art Library's traveling exhibition called The Sketchbook Project. To learn more about the show, go to www.thesketchbookproject.com
You can see the complete book (33 pages) on facebook, http://www.facebook.com/elka.amorim and at http://arthousecoop.com/users/elkamorim.
Most works are mixed-media collage on paper, where I use everything from color pencils, acrylic, watercolor, ink and graphite. These works will be exhibited in various cities across the States, starting in New York, February 19th, 2011. For a complete list of cities and exhibition dates, go to the Art House Co-op website and look for the Sketchbook Project itinerary map.

This was a little installation I did on top of my coffee table. The Lovers went on to become part of an elaborate game of cards. They are conjoined and forever crippled by their apparent inability to move independently from one another. If separated, the severed half could not bare the absence of her lover, and would surely perish, without legs of her own. Their destiny is unsure. 






These are part of an ongoing series of works on "family portraits". The wedding pictures are of my grandmother, the little girl dressed for Carnaval is me,  the piece with the identity card has 3  pictures of my mother, and the girl doing her homework in school is my mother's younger sister.
