Probably more pictures than you ever wanted of one work- but for those of you who cannot see the exhibit this gives you a good sense of the finished work. I realize I need a few more close detail shots of the figure and the words. When I go teach the workshop in February I can get those.
In general I am extremely happy and excited by this work- I feel like its scale and use of actual object applique opens up an entirely new direction for my work that I am very excited to explore. I love working large and always have leaned towards being more sculptural even in my photography. I feel like these techniques allow me to really start pushing that aspect of my creative practice.
I also really enjoy how the work works from every angle. Yeah!!
Though I will do some small tweaks once it gets back into the studio....
It took forever and I literally was working down to the wire. Painting the work the morning of the opening and embroidering until just one hour before... but it was worth it.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
Tomorrow pictures of the fabulous exhibition connective thread, you will be amazed by the wonderful work included!!!
