11:11 Series: Overcoming shyness * Shining one’s own Light by 


3D mixed media collage including hand painted papers & fibers, golden threads & dried baby flannel flowers.
Color photography, hand painted black and white photography, and finally Photoshop enhanced to slightly adjust precision.

The 11:11 represents the ‘Gateway’ to the energy of the ‘New Age’ and is seen by many people in ‘normal’ day to day situations ie the time shown on a digital clock or PC.

11:11 started appearing in my early collage work, even before the significance of this powerful ‘symbol’ was made known to me.

But then acknowledging the power of 11:11enabled me to play with it further eg within the 11:11 is a 3D structure of the Star of David.

The 11:11 structure floats above, in this case a bed of baby flannel flowers (Overcoming shyness)

    beautiful work

  • Thanks JUSTART. This series is very special to me, as I particularly loved the process of their creation so much. I’m pleased to know that this image has now been appreciated by others.

    Incredible Ally! x

  • Thanks Emma. This series was quite a breakthrough in my art. There’s a lot of complexity at play in relationship to the objects chosen and their placement & meaning. But most of the ‘thought’ processing involved flowed effortlessly. With the end result having such a simple quality to it that I really like.

    Fantastic! Thank you for describing the symbolism. I love the symmetrical balance, and the colours are gorgeous. Love the title too!

    Thanks so much Melissa. Orange is always a very difficult colour to work with as it can either be too gaudy or too dull. But working with painted silk it’s possible to obtain really clear and vibrant oranges that zing and make the heart sing. Really funny with titles * It would have had another title originally but I couldn’t remember what it was and so this new title came to me looking at it now, with the bottom flower really ‘’shining its own light.’

    that’s lovely Alison. I love the colours, 3D feeling and mix of textures. Can I buy one as a card?

    Thanks so much Sandi. Unfortunately the resolution of the image isn’t high enough for it to be produced as a card. It was one of a series of 12 layered collages, that had to be framed before I could photograph them properly. They were quite small and only intended to be models for larger scale works .. That I’d still love to produce .. One day.
