No Matter What Shape - The Archive

AN ARCHIVE OF MY OLDER WORK - AN EXHIBITION SPACE FOR ORIGINAL AND ALTERNATE VERSIONS OF MANIPULATED WORKS THAT APPEAR AT MICKMATHERSARTBLOG - A PARKING PLACE FOR SELECTED GRAPHICS USED IN OTHER BLOG SIDEBARS - AN ARTWORK IN AND OF ITSELF

In its short-sightedness, blogger has turned its back on those of us stuck with old operating systems and I'm forced to find a new blog host. You will now find MickMathersARTblog at Blog.com - use the direct link found in the masthead and remember to update your bookmarks. This place will continue as another archive for a large body of my work. As many of you know, my primary medium and working method is digital collage composed of manipulated photographs often combined with digital drawing & generative images. Netlabels, bands and musicians can view samples of my CD Cover Art at Mick Mather Illustration located on Tumblr. In another life I was an Arts & Culture consultant specializing in revitalization planning through creative public art projects and programs with Economic & Community Development Departments of towns, villages and cities. In these hard financial times this work is more important than ever and I still accept consultancy inquiries. You can contact me by email at: mickmather@yahoo.com

The night before -

"Trick or Treat II, 2009"
digital photograph by Mick Mather
In my early teen years the Hallowe'en tradition always began the night before. I and one or two of my pals would dress up and go 'round trick or treating in the far reaches of our "official" territory. Mostly we had doors slammed in our faces, suffered a few lectures about our cheek and our age ... but a rare few kind-hearted souls would say wait a moment, shuffle away to the candy bowl (already well stocked I bet) and return with a little something. Today's post is a nod and another wink to those good old days. A digitally manipulated version of this photograph will appear tomorrow at MickMathersARTblog. Ding, dong!

Well, thanks so much for the personal visit. By the way, I really like your concept of "finding" as an arts practice.
