HIVE

It's time to share this video of my first HIVE. This is the second CUBE that I have made, this one being so vastly different, I had to come up with a new way of describing them, so I refer to them as HIVE now.

I began the idea of working with a cube format since 2014 when I had a vision of a giant cube painted and wrapped like my paintings I had just begin creating in earnest a few months before my residency in Tamaqua Pennsylvania. It was there that the dream struck of a giant cube in a gallery space that just happened to be Luhring Augustine. Funny how I tend to visualize things in that space, mostly because it's a gorgeous gallery.

Weeks after this vision I began preparing to make my first CUBE. I didn't have much for materials at the time, seems to be a theme with me, so I made a small 9 Inch CUBE, painted it's chassis blue, wrapped it in blue (inside and out) and painted upon it, the inside and outside.

It was a few years before I was able to begin my second one (this one). This time I was able to begin and finish making it over a period of a year in the studio of Painter Peter Reginato (also a sculptor). After I had the task finished of wrapping each element that I wanted to paint upon, I began painting. Once painting was finished, I had a change of thought for the name of these works of art. I now refer to them as HIVE. This is #1 ('06-03-2018') 16 Inches Cubed. Acrylic on Acrylic Yarn on Painted Wood Chassis.
