I've decided to post what I've been working on (below the photo has a horrid white balance ignore the pinkish white). I need to put a little more pressure on myself because I'm still not in that zone of gettin jiggy with it. It has taken me months to even know what to mount this photograph on and more time than you'd believe figuring out the general placement of things. The last challenge, the biggest one, is the bottom third screen. I have a general idea of what I am going to do down there but I keep coming up against tool issues and the general mechanics of the assemblages I aim to procure. Lots of dead ends. Dead brain. I thought if I posted this it would wake me up a bit.
This is another photograph taken last November in Upstate NY. The Jersey Barrier shoot. I totally see a hand, especially a large index finger (with fingernail showing) pointing that-a-way---->. This is obviously a very abstract picture, it has also been a brain twister figuring out how to blend the mixed media with it. Believe it or not this is taking on an Asian Zen feel and I'm pretty sure I'm going for some Chinese Characters written on flashing with an industrial white marker. Still stuck on the 'bauble' part. We will see....I still have a few days to get it done if I want to submit to the upcoming opening. More strange art that I doubt many 'get', but hey it's what I like doing. Oh, I have Tod to thank for the window screen, he found it at the dump last year and brought it home wondering if I could do anything with it. I love it when friends find objects and give them to me, it's better than a gift wrapped store bought present!
