|Ah, my own little corner of heaven! (who knew there was shag carpet in the great beyond?)|
I showed work from this summer and Phase 2 at Henry Hudson Studios last week in Hudson, NY, and this week I installed other work from the summer in Chatham, NY to coincide with the Film Columbia, an international film festival. (Yay!) I am excited to be exhibiting, and because I always try to include new work every time I show, it brings me back to principle #1 (make the work)...
With so much house painting and mental overflow, ironically, now that I have space, I went back to working small this week because it felt safe and contained. I was making this tiny print - I think I'm really starting to get the hang of the tiny prints thing. My friends and family have been great "testers" - so far, and I think the tiny prints have helped to spread miniature happiness (though I still think they might be even better if they came with a cookie - and now that I have a kitchen...) But as much as I like making tiny prints, I felt like I wanted to do something different this week. I decided to start from the premise - what if it were possible to make anything I wanted - what would that be? The answer: neon figure painting.
