Hurricane Sandy

Climate Change by Roberta Warshaw

This piece came about today in an interesting way.

I have been experimenting for the past few days with my new Gelli Plate. I had never even heard of these plates until recently and was anxious to see what all the excitement was about.

I was playing with some of my stamps on the plate and realized that they looked like waves and buildings.

It all happened very fast and very spontaneously. I guess it is my inner response to all the destruction.

I call it "Climate Change".

Hi Roberta: Very nice. I like the tension between the angular and curvilinear forms.
I am not familiar with Gelli plates, but I noticed that Concord Art Association has a one day workshop on them.

Just in case you are interested.

It's good to be able to express your feelings about such a disaster in an artistic way. Very interesting how it came about.

Thanks Joanne. I will check out their web site. There are also a ton of videos by a woman from Haverhill, Linda Germain. Check her out on You Tube.

So much devastation.

This is a stunning piece, powerful one like much of your work. I am glad I found your blog. Interesting also that you loaded your photos from Flickr to Blogger, I am going to try that.

This is a fantastic piece. Lights out and all! Good thing there is no such thing as too much fun because it looks like you are having a blast with your printing and collage work. I'm so inspired!
