This piece came to fruition after creating Ceremonial and Circadian, drawing from the rolled paper and the idea of creating a clock. It came together pretty quickly after creating both of those pieces!
From this pile of rolled paper I decided the layout for the piece and attached them all to the LP. To make the hands of the clock portion stand out I added the painted CD.
This was one of my favorite LP pieces and I’m happy to say it found a good home and was purchased by a fellow artist. Here’s a picture of the finished piece:
One more left, then one other piece from the recycled/upcycled show last year and I can start sharing some new work and ideas!
Whoosh! Exhale. The solo show is up at ArtSplash Gallery in Carmel, Indiana and I feel like I’ve got a little time to breath. I’m still trying to clean and re-organize the studio after two months of cranking out new work, I’ve got a bit of a deadline for that since this Saturday is the Second Saturday Open Studio Tour as part of the Hendricks County Cultural Trail. In the meantime I’ve been playing a bit, digitally, with some items I’ve not done for a while. Today I thought I’d share a few digital kaleidoscopes I’ve created the last week.
I will, eventually, get around to sharing all the fun and funky upcycled/repurposed art from the show but that takes some photo editing and right now I’m not quite ready to tackle that task!
I hope that your summer is off to a fantastic start, enjoy all that it has to offer.
LOOK! My postcards arrived yesterday!
I am also busy creating upcycled envelopes and invitations to the private opening of this upcoming show! If you will be in the Indianapolis area on June 1st and would like to be invited to the private opening please send an email with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be honored to send you an invitation.
I’ve been busy the past several months exploring different media and materials, especially things that are often discarded. Magazines, newspapers, scrap metal, styrofoam, plastic lids, old books, aluminum cans, used albums & CD’s, wood scraps, packing materials and have even found a few objects that I am not even sure what they were used for! It’s been an interesting journey but now I am narrowing my focus to a handful of those materials and producing new work especially for this show. I will continue to share peeks at the process over the next month. It has really opened my eyes to all the possible materials and genres that can be created by re-imagining and re-purposed items. I’ve even re-created some of my own artwork into something new & different!
I do hope you’ll be able to attend the show at some point during the month of June…I am really excited to share my journey with you.
