This is kinda rough, but I’m just sharing. I’m working on making my first “spatial painting”. What this basically means is that it’s a three dimensional painting on several pains of glass. I’m hoping to make a metal base to hold the panes, but for now, wood is just fine.
In March, there will be an opening for a show called “Beneath the Surface” at the A.P.E gallery. The show came about from a proposal that was accepted by the gallery to do a show with some of my favorites, Katie Richardson and Carolyn Clayton. Here, we are in being given a BIG space to make a showing of our work. The title is Beneath the Surface to kind of tie in the intersection of the different ways in which we deal with layering and surfaces in our bodies of work.
This little spatial painting is a kind of small scale model for what will be a much larger piece on large panes of glass. The base is being constructed out of metal by the very skilled Ben Westbrook of HammeronSteel on ETSY or BMW blacksmith to the Valley of Western Massacheusetts. Carolyn will most likely be the one fabricating the piece however because they are partners in crime.
I’m a little worried how this is going to go. I have a month to complete it as well as two large paintings to also install in the space…that have not been started. -eep- here we go!
