Final Day

This is a final view of the studio and some of the work I produced over the 2 month residency.  If you would like to start at the beginning to see the space and early work use this link. Following are some details of some of the newer pieces, please scroll down to see others.

Below, the weather was so nice I had to take my lunch to the park across the street. If you haven't visited the park there yet you should, it's great.

Thank You!

I would like to thank the staff at chashama for giving me this opportunity and for all the work they do to keep things running smoothly. It's also been great to meet the other resident artists and I look forward to seeing them in the future.

I think this a great painting. I am allowed to say that? I watched the movie about Chuck Connelly the other night and he thinks it's alright to say your own work is great.

You need to stand in front of this piece to get the full effect because of it's size which is 7 ft. high. That's before it's propped up on the two discarded foam buoys I found.

Big Spill, 64x84 inches, zero VOC house paint on canvas. Top, installation view in chashama studio space followed by a close up of the buoys and 2 details.

Don't Litter 3 (Pink Straw), 1x10 ft, paper, acetate, spray paint. This will most likely be the last finished piece from the residency. The final few days will be spent documenting all the work, so I'll be adding a number of new pictures soon.

This work isn't intended to be shown together in one exhibition, but are pieces that will most likely be put into at least 2 groups. The Pink Slip piece, top, is part of the Don't Litter work like the UTO potato chip bag (scroll down). It could be shown on the floor flat like in the photo, or maybe rolled up in a big ball, or it could be suspended along side the chip bag. It is appoximately 4x7 feet, acrylic paint on paper. To get a sense of scale click on the image and look for the red broom in the back right corner.

Center, a new painting, 36x60 inches. it has already changed slightly since I took the photograph. Above, work in progress, painted foam panels. I see these as part of the Tectonic series that can me seen here.
