Roving Art - "Placement"
The Book of Dreams features characters based on two of my artist sisters - Yvonne and Deirdre - but, in fact, I have three more! On my Links page, I've listed my sister Lorraine's website which she shares with her sculptor husband. (Art doesn't run in our family, it gallops.) Here is a sample of one of her most recent projects called "Placement. " Her paintings are printed onto labels which are "placed" here and there around the world, by herself, family and friends, and some who remain anonymous. I did this placement on the Aran island of Inis Oirr, off the west coast of Ireland, in summer 2009. Amazingly enough, I did NOT arrange the black bicycle against the hedge or the trophy for currach racing. It was all there just waiting for me to add the perfect little image of a cow. Go here to see more placements in Ireland, Toronto, London, New York, and Prague:http://www.lorjames.com/.
