Explanation of images
July 1, 2011 § Leave a comment
I will continue to post fragments of drawings that I am working on.
In this fragment I have lifted and enlarged a portion of the imagery from a paint by numbers kit. I work in layers. Sometimes I feel a bit like Martha Stewart, because I am constantly mixing and matching. I start off with one composition, and by the time the piece is completed I arrive at a place that I had no idea about when I started. This is refreshing, yet much of the time I feel uneasy; however this is one of the things that drives me.
On to something else. …..The exciting aspect of this project is that when I am working in the studio I do not have my attention on the end result. Underneath I am quite aware that I am creating vestibule floors for a subway station, but the beauty day to day is that I work from a place that is internally driven. Also, because the drawings/collages/paintings are 13′ in length, I comprehend the entire gestalt, but focus on the details in each section …….this is what is presented above.
