Portrait of Elisha by Mindy Fisher @Ornaglyphology

Elisha Sarti - 2017
Mindy Fisher, Elisha, 2017
Gouache Painting
8 x 8 inches.

Mindy Fisher @Ornaglyphology began the Lady of the Month portraits project at the beginning of 2017, when in response to 2016’s “crazy and disappointing” U.S. election, she decided to each month of the Trump presidency, and possibly beyond, paint a portrait of a woman who has inspired her. “I want to fight hate and fear with love,” says the artist.

I am flattered and very excited to share that this month Mindy chose to paint a portrait of me as her Lady of the Month! Click here or the image above to learn more.

Mindy, who’s based in Vermont, specializes in gouache paintings. I especially admire and am often intrigued by her ongoing series called “Ornaglyphs” which feature “bird-like characters and a hieroglyphic non-language that is open to interpretation.” When the ornaglyphs are not part of a portrait, she creates them spontaneously and from a stream-of-conscious mindset.

To learn more about her projects and see more of her lovely artworks, check out Mindy’s web site here: MindyFisher.com

Update to Mirror Numbers – Collaboration in Progress

Here are the latest pictures from the Mirror Numbers Series Angela Oaks and I have been collaboratively working on over the long distance between NY and Colorado. Each piece is on a found fabric sample swatch and depicts a mirrored number as its starting point. Mirror #6(9): Petrol is done. So is Mirror #8: Marine Life (8 Clams), and now Mirror #3: Thunderbolt Toddy. #7 and #2 are getting close – see the studio pictures below. Click each image to see it larger.

Mirror Numbers – Collaboration in Progress

Angela Oaks and I have been collaborating on a series of paintings on found fabric samples. Each swatch features a mirrored depiction of a number as its starting point. Click each image below to see it larger. Here’s an overview of all 8 of the pieces in their current state (a few summers ago.) The number 6 (or 9?) Mirror # 6: Petrol is complete; the others are in progress. They’ve changed a lot – you can see in these latest pictures: http://elishasarti.com/tag/mirror-numbers
