Welcome to my online Journal where i hope to share my thoughts, feeling, inspirations, processes, problem solving, and completed works as well as works in progress.
I bought the first elemental landscape into the studio space for the first time yesterday. I experimented with using the photographs of the stages placed over the canvas. I love the way the canvas reeks of smoke and fire, the way it dominates the space....it feels raw and alive. I was going to use this piece into the next stage of the project where colored dyes and natural pigments will be used to document the act of love-making in nature on the canvas, but i have decided to use a new canvas for this piece that is much larger. I feel the scale of this next work will be important, i want it to appear as an entire landscape in its own right. To dominate not just the gallery space but the viewer, to allow enough room for the pigments, dyes and elements to move and be free. A big fish needs a bigger net!!!!
