Here you can see some of the hundreds of pilings that are being added which will eventually support the main structures which I’m working on now. Using blueprints, the idea is to mimic in a relatively accurate way the construction of sections of a large gravity dock such that are found on the Great Lakes.
4′ wide by 6′ tall on canvas. Another 3D work which will incorporate built wooden structures based on industrial scale docks as once found on Lake Superior. I’m utilizing hundred-year-old blueprints for their construction. This work will focus on time and to some extent, cycles.
I continue my interest in specific structures set against the painted surface. Here we have the pilings of what will eventually be a bridge.
I’m so honored to be participating in Personal Structures – Identities in Venice, Italy next week!
I’m very excited to announce that I have been invited to participate in PERSONAL STRUCTURES organized by the GAA Foundation and hosted by the European Cultural Centre in Venice Italy during the Venice Biennale, 2019.
This small work was chosen:
I want to express my thanks to all involved, especially to artists Jo Ellen Burke and Terry Meyer who took it upon themselves to organize this Go Fund Me page on my behalf. Thank you all who have contributed!
Thank you to Volume One for this writeup.
And a special thank you to Al Ross and Wisconsin Public Radio for this interview.
More about this soon…
Very excited to be at this point in the painting. I prepped & “sunk” the boat last night. A beautiful day at 46°F to spend under the sky. I have my work cut out for me now.
Video can bee seen at my Instagram.
I have a thing for fishing lures. I’m not sure why exactly… I don’t fish. Here’s some details from past #paintings. I use ashes and small seeds from our field for texture.
