    Putting the Text in Textiles with Rosalind Wyatt

    52:30

    Thanks to a listener suggestion I hopped a train for West London this morning to meet up with calligraphy and textile artist Rosalind Wyatt.  The way she weaves historic and significant text into some pretty cool ‘Oh my God, how did you get your hands on that’ pieces is something to see, but it’s the stories behind each piece that will really blow your mind.  From Winston Churchill to Jude Law, her stories will make you want to hop a plane to London to see these works of art for yourself. Our Guest Artist: Rosalind Wyatt http://www.rosalindwyatt.com/#3 (www.rosalindwyatt.com) Our Host Artist: Carol McQuaid http://carolmcquaid.faso.com/ (www.carolmcquaidart.com) Now follow me to Rosalind’s garden studio and get ready for some wind and inspiring stories.  Thanks again Sandy Mair for the request, and if any of you readers know of another artist whose story you like to hear and you see on my feed that I’m headed their way, by all means send me a request.  You can follow my travels on Instagram @carolmcquaidart. In this episode you’ll hear about: How she came to have her magical Chiswick, West London garden studio Doing commissions for groups like Burberry Gabardine Canopy Tents, Virginia Wolfe and The Maker House project The New Craftsman Gallery where Ros shows her work Writing with a needle: her calligraphy background and how it made its way onto textiles I love what she has to say about building skill as a foundation The difference between working on commissions and personal projects “It’s a much slower process.  It’s less intense, it’s more organic.  You can let your selfwander a bit more.  It’s much more contemplative.” “The thing about an artistic life is that it is free, isn’t it. So what worked in the past doesn’t necessarily work now” Follow this link to hear the David Tycho interview we talk about http://www.twoartistswalkintoabar.com/fire-rain-journey-extremes-artist-david-tycho/ (http://www.twoartistswalkintoabar.com/fire-rain-journey-extremes-artist-david-tycho/) Her time with a Japanese Zen master and ancient Upanishad texts”Through the inner ear of a devotee I make my way into his soul and sweep it clean” Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata and Shankara Bringing creativity and creative thinkers into business “we need to break down these barriers” We talk about the importance of traveling with a purpose Jude Law and his involvement in her “Stitched Lives of London” project The quote from Hamlet: “We defy augury.  There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.  If it be now, ’tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all. Since no man, of aught he leaves, knows what  is’t to  leave betimes? Let be.”  – William Shakespeare The murmurration of starlings Great stories from her Stitches Lives Collection; of Sir Edmund Hillary, Winston Churchill, the moving tale of mental health campaigner Johnny Benjamin and more You’ll find images, stories and more on Rosalind’s website at www.rosalindwyatt.com Sign up for her newsletter at http://www.rosalindwyatt.com/subscribe/ (www.rosalindwyatt.com/subscribe) Follow Rosalind Wyatt on https://www.instagram.com/artistrosalindwyatt/ (instagram )and https://www.facebook.com/artistrosalindwyatt (facebook) @artistrosalindwyatt   Follow our Podcast on  http://www.instagram.com/2artistspodcast (instagram), https://twitter.com/2artistspodcast (twitter) andhttps://www.facebook.com/2artistspodcast ( facebook) @2artistspodcast Follow our Host on  http://www.instagram.com/carolmcquaidart (instagram), http://twitter.com/carolmcquaid (twitter) and https://www.facebook.com/carolmcquaidart (facebook )@carolmcquaidart Join the Conversation!

    From Greek Paintings to Irish Jigs with artist/musician Manolia Kokoloyianni

    38:00

    Today we’re in Greece, on the island of Crete, heading into Heraklion to meet up at the Miniatoura Café with artist and musician Manolia Kokoloyianni.  She grew up in both Crete and Athens, paints beautiful introspective canvases in the intense and subdued palette of this island home, and yet it’s jigs and reels she performs on her classical greek lyra with her Irish partner musician Paul Goodman. Its these awesome contradictions that keep life interesting, isn’t it?
