As I eagerly count down the days until my show goes up at Artpace, a non-profit organization located in San Antonio, TX, I'm taking a moment out of my Sunday morning to reflect on just how this show has come together up to this point.
My exhibit will be part of the Window Works program, in Artpace's Main Avenue windows.
To begin, here is the window space that will contain the Window Works exhibition. This space presents a lot of opportunities for expanding on a multilayered 2-dimensional approach to making images. As you can imagine, a lot of traffic pulls through in front of this window in the heart of this metropolitan area so I'm keeping this in mind when sketching out solutions for my installation.
After escaping to the Vermont Studio Center to sort out some ideas, I decided I wanted the exhibit to be centered around two central figures in the window.
My goal for one of these figures:
Getting my materials was pretty intuitive. I'd worked with this material in the past for another installation at Transit and it provided a viable opportunity for me to bridge the gap between drawing and sculpture.
let's hear that snap...
Once the pieces were cut down to size it was time to paint. Painting was the most laborious aspect. I've never painted so much in my life; I have to admit it's starting to grow on me.
In progress painting...
This one's my favorite.
Although there's still more work to be done, this is a good stage to share with you the journey thus far. Most of the other components are finished for the show. I will begin installing this upcoming week and I'll be sure to post more photos of the installation and finished piece!
