I've been working for over a year now on this method of using acrylic yarn as my substrate to paint upon. And the more I work on these, the more I love working on them. So many opportunities to try new things, and I just keep learning and finding out about more methods to use to create with.
Here's the newest chassis I am working on. Yes that is Fluorescent red paint for the chassis. I got the idea from a good friend who was wondering what my work would look like if I used some day-glo colors. Another friend told me to be careful of using day-glo's as they become addictive quickly. I can see why. They just vibrate in your mind.
This painting is 66 X 41.5 Inches and when finished will have a white texture upon it. I should have it done in a week or so. But with the holiday, it always ends up pushing things back a day or three.
Just thought I'd let you know what is going on in my world. Hope things are going well in yours.
I thought today about beginning a website specifically for my writing about exhibitions, but that idea didn't last long. I don't want them to be separate from me, and I feel this page here is a direct reflection of myself. I love talking about painting, and I hope you enjoy reading about what I am seeing. I hope to be heading to NYC this month for another round, but we'll see how that goes. If not in July, than August will be kind of a bust too because almost all the galleries are shut down in August for vacation. There are a few choice exhibitions I would like to see that are up right now. The one that sticks in my mind the most right now is of De Wain Valentine at David Zwirner. I'd also like to go take another look at the Peter Reginato show I saw last time I was in town. We'll see what the future holds. :D Thinking positive!
