First official look at my Alien Botany series, with progress documentation »> Artist’s Notebook: Zoetica Ebb - ANIMAL NEW YORK
"ANIMAL’s feature Artist’s Notebook asks artists to show us their original “idea sketch” next to a finished piece. This week, Dublin-based artist Zoetica Ebb talks about her Alien Botany drawing series inspired by Joris-Karl Huysmans’ 1884 novel, À rebours, and her intensive visual catalog of bizarre plants and insects.”
"Not showering until this drawing is finished" hair is on point today.
One of my early Alien Botany drawings is up over at Hi-Fructose, in conjunction with their coverage of Outside The Lines: An Artists Coloring Book for Giant Imaginations, an awesome project I’m happy to be part of.
I just announced the release of the book yesterday, along with a link to the deeelightful MOCA launch party photos.
A “Thanks” and a “Wheee” to you for all the positive feedback on my Amorphophallus sculpture! This foray into a relatively new medium was hyper-stimulating and I now have an entire concept bubbling merrily in my mind - one to potentially re-visit when I have time.
I am excited for the opening reception on Saturday and about seeing my much-missed LA comrades, but the piece took a month to complete, so I’m ready to get back to the ink variants of my Alien Botany series, and to move on to Phase 2 (Printing and washes, as I mentioned in this post) soon after that.
Meanwhile, an extra outfit, 1Q84 and a camera are stuffed into my leather backpack, and I’m ready to put in some serious reading time during tomorrow’s ride to Angel City. The house smells like mulled wine and fire, and coyotes are rehearsing a hysterical operetta outside. Going offline, see you soon at Copro Gallery!
