Here is a sample of the large drawings I have been doing this year. These drawings impose the imagery of the landscape onto the symmetry of a human or animal. They are of the size of a large pelt, such as a calf pelt.
These are some of my favorite images from the two series below, click to see a little more detail.
I wanted to show you how the Numero Series looks now that I have added collaged mat board frames to the drawings. Slices of painted and/or carved board are added to the frames, so that the frame becomes an integral part of each work. This was how I showed it at the Physical Center show at The Convent of St. Cecilia in Greenpoint a couple of weeks ago. It was a really great show, which has another component in London next year. Thank you to Amanda Schmitt for inviting me to be part of Physical Center.
This is a series of drawings that I recently showed at Brooklyn Fireproof Gallery, as part of BETA spaces, a Bushwick art festival. The show, titled “The Box Which Contains the World”, was curated by Ali Aschman. Each artist in the show was given a wooden box, to be incorporated into an artwork in any manner the artist chose. I decided to imagine various sculptures that I could make with the box, and then describe these configurations two-dimensionally instead of three-dimensionally. The drawings are presented in the order I imagined them in, and I included all of the spontaneous and random ideas for the box that crossed my mind.
These are gouache paintings interpreting a photo shoot from Numero fashion magazine.
I have been experimenting with new ways of working. The three-dimensional collages posted here are an example. I’m currently working on a big scroll, and will post images of that soon. Thank you to Amanda Schmitt for her insightful words about my work on her blog amateurartcriticnyc.blogspot.com.
