Artists In Action storefront this afternoon. The city donated the downtown space for a month as an on-going effort to promote the arts. Various members have volunteered to work in the space and show the public what we do. I created the above mask today.
Here, we have various painters in decisive, dynamic demonstration.
And Kev Kohler with his ambitious painting.
I apologize for the photo quality - I forgot my camera, so had to use my cell phone.
..............tour successfuly completed Yet Again.....4th year and it's always interesting to meet the people that are kind enough to show an interest in my work. My sincere thanks to those who made the effort.
....bright and sparkling......this, I suspect, is what the underpining of the universe looks like (the invisible structure of forces) - an undulating sheet spun and twisted. Well....it's what I think it SHOULD look like.
acrylic painting in progress (size of wooden panel is about 22 x 17). Started it a month ago in a rare fit of enthusiam (yes, I never learn), but found some inspiration this weekend to begun anew the process of putting paint to board. I like the water...the fish is passible...but the water lilies are going to challenge me (what an epitaph: Challenged to the Death by Water Lilies..and here he lies, food for flies, beaten by the Plant Kingdom...a martyr for art." Catchy eh?
...........Vision. 30-inches tall, 10-inches wide x 6-inches deep. Wood, metal, ceramic, found objects, and acrylic. Created for Artists In Action "Outside the Box" auction during the Bush Park Art Fair (coming up in a few weeks).
begin to manifest. Of course, I couldn't just make something easy...I had to go and consider LED wiring, so the task is somewhat greatly increased.....but work progresses. 10mm red LEDs for the eyes, the hole in his chest shall be covered by an Altoids tin (suitably tailored) to hold the battery and I have no idea for the arms/hands yet.....still musing on that. And dials...and lots of other stuff.....
....um....stuff. The wiring is now operational and the piece is essentially done minus any last-minute additions of glamour and mystery. Approximately a 3-foot tall conglomeration of wood, ceramic, metal and paint with a working clock.
