Insects in process

Giant insects in process for the Tiny Great Outdoors festival produced by Greg Cook, for the City of Somerville.

What I’m doing here is taking old vinyl advertising banners and piecing them to compose in color and texture. I’m sewing them together, then will sew a wire armature into them to hold the form and enable a little bit of shaping of them.

Starting to Hang…

We’re starting to hang That Space Between Flying and Falling. This piece pictured is Night Light, one of 13 cut silhouette paintings in this show, along with 12 watercolor sketches, and 8 miniature maquette paintings in shadow boxes. I hope you’ll com see it!

A special thank you to Nick, Dennis, and Patrick for working to hang the show with me today!

Sketchday painting

Today, and through the month of August, Thursday Sketch Day is going to be about sketches and design work for my upcoming solo show Laconia Gallery. It’s a little ways off, but I’m making all new work for this installation. I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks! 

Milestone reached

Many of you know that I have a solo show coming up this Fall. All new work. These will be more cut-silhouettes, in the same mode as the “Instinct to Dream” installation I’ve had in my studio for the past two SOSes. Today I’ve crossed a major milestone in the project, in sending off the last of the vector files for laser cutting. From here I’ll be mostly in to painting for the next two – three months. I’m up to low-grade, long-range panic about it now, as I still have a lot of work to do. But I am incredibly psyched and relieved to have this part done!

That Space Between Flying and Falling opens with a reception, Friday, November 4 at Laconia Gallery on Harrison Ave., Boston. 

Tiny Ships

I’m creating a set of Tiny Spanish Galeons for the Tiny Tall Ship Festival produced by Greg Cook for the City of Somerville. Visitor will get to color and assemble their own ships to take home with them.

I used Autodesk Sketchbook for the quick sketching and mock ups, then switched to Adobe Illustrator for making vector files for the laser cutter.
