I think I am suffering from a tough of Delanymania. I just love Mrs. Delany's paper mosaick flowers. I've been looking at them on the British Museum's website.

Updated my website

I put some of the work from my March 2011 exhibition at the Soho20 Chelsea Gallery. Granted I should have done this much sooner, but in March I was overwhelmed and then after that, I got overwhelmed with other stuff. No great excuse.

New Tea Cup

Did you ever go to an Argo Tea Shop? They are all over NYC. I love their cups. This is my version of their small hot cup.

Today's Work - Little Betty Jane collages

I made some collograph prints of Little Betty Jane. I used my baby press that I got for my last birthday. It came a few months late, but it is still hard to believe that I hadn't had time until now to really figure out how to use it. I posed her and put her on the vintage images I got at the Antique Garage market on Sunday. Then I put them on other images...
This one is put behind a Dover Book illustrated border.

This one uses a page from a book I have on French decorative patterns. I actually cut it out of one of my favorite books.

more teacups

As you know, I have been working on teacups. This is the second cup - a yellow cup with flowers that I bought at the Antique Garage Market. It is from Japan - I think. There are three versions. Some very sketchy, one more finished. I have glued the painted paper cups onto reproductions from these magazines that I bought at the Met for $1.00 each. I like the added meaning. They are all about 5 inches square. The last one is circular.

testing embedded vimeo

Childhood Reverie from Elizabeth Bisbing on Vimeo.

I just opened a vimeo account. This is a very early - very rough version of the video animation I am working on.

small clip

For some reason, I am having trouble uploading video. I made a very, very short clip of my newest project entitle "Childhood Reveries." Maybe I should change that to childish reveries. Don't know. In this piece, Little Betty Jane will be trying on all the fantasy cards that were in my last exhibition. She also does cartwheels, dances, and ....

This link should work. If it doesn't - let me know.

New Work - Blue Teacups

After my show in March, I guess I was at a loose ends. I find I am interested in tea cups. This is a recurring interest. I think they speak to the feminine and the domestic. These are issues I think about a lot in my work.

writ small - installation shots

Here you can see the performance installation on the right and the animation installation to the left. There are collages all around. The next two shots are from around the video screen.

These are the illuminated manuscripts. Even the writing is made from cut paper.

Little Betty Jane fantasy card set with a couple of larger views below.

And, again, the performance area installation. Images from the performance are in the post just before this one. It should be below this post.

Tea & Cake with Betty Jane Performance

As a part of my current exhibition "writ small" at Soho20 Chelsea Gallery in New York city, I am having performances on Saturdays in March. Here are some photos of the first one - it was yesterday. In them, I dress as Betty Jane and serve tea and cake (made by Betty Jane.) And, I tell stories about my life and the work.

I appreciate all the support from attending friends during yesterday's performance. This was my first performance ever. I was very nervous and unsure of myself. But, then again, so is Betty Jane.
