Graffiare Figures
Series of 4.25” square tiles. This is a technique I call "Graffiare". Sgraffito and sgraffiti come from the Italian word graffiare ("to scratch"), ultimately from the Greek (??aFe??) (gra´phein) "to write". Closing in on 100 figure tiles available for viewing on my Instagram account at bernardrejr.

Graffiare Mod
Mod (Tile 8) 2020 from series using this "mod" design in graffiare technique on 4.25” square tiles and on pottery. More on my Instagram account at bernardrejr.

About Graffiare:
Beginning in 2013 (and continuing today) I began to use tiles as a sketching material (not that I gave up my paper sketch book mind you) using a technique I call "Graffiare". Sgraffito and sgraffiti come from the Italian word graffiare ("to scratch"), ultimately from the Greek (γραΦειν) (gráphein) "to write".

This is a tile (subway tile size) from a series using this "Graffiare" technique entilted The View from Behind my Eyelids. It is inspired by the imagery of the light and dark and the shadowy forms one finds behind closed eyelids - emerging out of the scratching away of the surface – as life becomes richer as we see beyond the surface. I currently have hundreds of "The View from Behind my Eyelids" tiles and someday hope to be commissioned to create a large wall installation using them. View Graffiare: Drawing on tile work for permanent wall installations or mural applications options on my Creative Ground page or contacte me by email.

Greetings from the multiverse
This is more of my journey, connections to the vast known, the imagined and the unknown - out there and in here... Greetings from the multiverse is my mailing log of drawings from the multiverse of places that I have traveled to and documented and then sent out as original postcard drawings to share with the universe that I occupy. If you have received one of my "greetings" it would be great to hear from you in the comments section under your postcard. Visit postcard log...

Greetings from the multiverse. Did you hear that?.

Change-Process Art: Drawing with Nature
The art of changeability using materials and pigments gathered from where I live and the places that I visit. I call this Change-Process Art and describe it as human and natural actions coming together to create an open ended work of art that has the possibility to change even as we have the possibility though time and space to alter our perception of it and our interaction with it.

Please visit my blog Drawing with Nature [HERE] to view more work and my process notes.

The Gathered Hedge
Explore a related collaborative project, The Gathered Hedge at our blog [HERE]. The Gathered Hedge is a collection of found, purchased and donated materials that have been merged with on site natural, planted and gathered growth. This process put in motion gathers other active partners; the weather, time, the sun, wind, cold, heat, rain, snow, ice, growth and the coming and going of the seasons to create this "Change-Process Art" installation.
