One week til exhibition!
My time in NYC is almost over. I basically have a week left of the residency. A lot has progressed since then. I've gone through a couple of failed ideas and have settled on three different mini-series that will be completed by next week. I'll have a series of 5-8 paintings ranging from 2.5 feet -to-4 inches in diameter. I am also almost finished what I am calling the "specimen series" which I will be able to continue from anywhere in the world (and will probably be more interesting when I have access to home again). Lastly, I will have a series of bacteria paintings. Unfortunately, the paintings themselves are not allowed to leave the lab due to liability issues even though the bacteria isn't harmful. Therefore, the paintings have been professionally photographed. I am going to print the paintings in two different ways to determine which direction the work will be presented. Option one will be shown as simply photographs of the paintings (larger than life); option two will be printed on canvas and I will paint on top of the photograph. I'm going to try out both to see what I like best. I'd rather do too much work than too little. A month is not a long time but I feel really good about my outcome at this point. And I still have a week left! Next Thursday (June 20th) is our "Semi Living" exhibition at SVA Fine Arts Building on 16st between 8th and 9th Aves from 6-9. As soon as the digital showcard is emailed to me, I"ll link it here. Let the countdown begin.
