A fragment of George Orwell’s book, 1984. The first part of the text is lettering created from what I got with an old typewriter, the last word is in a reworked NEULAND adorned with filigrees. The black is watercolor and the red is eosin.
A new composition with a NEULAND reworked on a text by Emile Zola proposed by my wife.
The writing was done with a piece of wood and watercolor (Payne gray), the decoration is inspired by the tiled backgrounds of the Gothic period with a line whose center is the O of glory at the penultimate line.
I used several blues and greys as well as gold leaf for the small decorative elements.
The paper is a mixture of hemp and linen with straw inclusions.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that I will be conducting an online course (in French) on NEULAND on December 12 & 13.
My version of Genesis, in computer language (php) and in colors (as in my code editor), with the result displayed.
First, connect to server caelum (the sky) with username Moyses and password rubusarderet (burning bush) to access the database genesis. If the connection fails, the system displays a fragment of an epigram of Martial: There is no god, the sky is empty. Otherwise, we look for Genesis images and display them in ascending order. If this step fails, a fragment of the Vulgate text will be displayed: terra est inanis et vacua.
The text and symbols are inspired by NEULAND with the introduction of uncial forms of abbreviations and ligatures. Then there are the images, in iron gall ink, of the different days: separation of light and darkness separation of upper and lower waters separation of land and water and creation of plants creation of the moon, the sun and the stars creation of birds and fish creation of animals and man rest
It’s been too long since I’ve posted a message on this blog. The fault is mine, mea culpa. So here is a new work, it seems I can’t get rid of the NEULAND lately. It’s a quote from Pascal Quignard, embossing on paper blackened with iron gall ink, insertion of golden patina by my wife.
loneliness, a precious stone, silence, darkness
Sorry for the quality of the pictures, the black of the paper is quite shiny and I couldn’t get good pictures in any lighting.
