I am thrilled to have been able to complete three Asemic Front collabs with Rebecca Guyver in the UK. She added textures, colors and depth that give my foundations resonance I had not thought possible. To me, the completed pieces reference medieval illustrated manuscripts and/or William Blake’s illustrations. I am sure they will spark other associations as well.

I was curious how she achieved these spectacular effects. Rebecca Guyver responded, “They are simply scanned and painted on. I think I might have stamped on one or two with stamps I made using buttons. It’s layered and crumpled when wet, unfolded, painted on again, etc. then dried and sewn on. No plastic, unless you see some on it that I sewed on. If I did I would have glued it first. I can never remember work when I’m done…”

Rebecca Guyver is a wonderful Eternal Network participant. I have enjoyed being part of many projects with her. Asemic Front might well be our best shared effort thus far. Many thanks.
