"Gift" drying


"Gift" is part of a new series along with "Souvenir" and "Memento", which will be featured shortly. Materials for these wall hanging pieces include crab shells, wood, fiberglass, epoxy and fireworks. "Gift" is approx. 90" x 6". In naming it gift I was partly inspired by Man Ray's "Gift"(below). I have always admired his work and think of him as true pioneer and role model as a mixed media artist. He was apparently an interesting character as well, photographing and becoming involved with a long list of the artists and musicians of his time. He also was driven by a self-described pursuit of "liberty and pleasure"....nice:



Here are some more views of my "Gift" (pictured with "Brujo" 6.5' x 9.5' epoxy on 360 4x6 photographs):

"Cave"

I made "Cave" in late 2007. It consists of a self portrait video and found images and sounds.

A lot of my work deals with ideas of the "internal landscape": where it begins and ends and where it overlaps with "reality". Most of what I produce is not fully visualized beforehand. What I see when I close my eyes is still very elusive and probably fuels much of my drive to continue making things. A lot of artists talk about this type of channeling of information versus seeing a completed product and then fabricating it. Even when I visualize a complete image it tends to want to be woven into something else. It is a third participant in that way, straddling the area between what I think about and what becomes concrete.

Pattern Searching Animal Blog

This blog is an experiment. I will be posting and discussing new ideas, works in progress, and things that inspire and happen to me. It will also feature news and upcoming events at Studio/Gallery 6.
