I can't figure out how Linda made this beautifully executed, haptic, COSMICALLY STUNNING banana! It is just out of this world! There are HOLES (some, but not all of the white circles are holes); it is collaged, so if you run your hand over it you feel the topography of THE MOON. It has words and arrows and marks that surprise me. It has sunburnt edges. It is just spectacular! If I'd opened it earlier it would have hung on my Christmas tree in its ornate, ornamental winter moon, galactic splendor.
I'm an artist-educator who uses imagery in all that I do, from painting, drawing, print-making and mail art to reflective journals around action research in schools. I believe in creating learning environments that are democratic, and collaborative where we are honest, open and caring.
