I doubt anybody comes here anymore, but on the off chance you exist here is something to enjoy while I take a few months to get good enough at lino-cutting to have something to post.
Polygons and Polyhedra Book 10, a set on Flickr.
Book 10 of 10 (I skipped a few sets since the last one I posted). All pages are 6″ x 4.25″, multi-media quilt.
I have several works in an upcoming group show in Brooklyn. The exhibition has a theme: Horses. Theme shows are sometimes iffy, but I have confidence this will be very good. These two mixed media monotype/paintings in progress are part of several final pieces I’m working on for this show. The first one is in a very unresolved stage.
This is a new collage template I made to use with a few other projects I’m working on. It is based on this painting by Raphael. (Raphael wore the red blindfold and used Sais as his weapon of choice.) Each piece is 9″ x 6″.
A while ago an artist friend, Brian Piana took a masking tape piece I posted on Tumblr and turned it into a quick Gif animation. (I chose not to post the gif itself because it’s jarring on the same page as the Gif below.)
That, and some other artists I’ve seen on Tumblr playing with animation have made me want to learn about it. As such, I’ve been experimenting in my free time with some basic tests.
This is the most successful so far, made of 9 individual 4.5″ x 6″ cards of masking tape.
I still have a lot to learn to help myself automate and simplify the process so that basic animations look more smooth and don’t take an inordinate amount of time, but I have some ideas I’m slowly working out that I’ll share as they’re ready.
The idea is to create the animations, then bind the individual frames into their own books to get the experience of sequence in 2 different states.
I’m just going to keep chugging these out. This will be half of the completed books that are made. If this seems repetitive to you, just imagine hand cutting and sewing them. Let alone, scanning, cropping and coding to post here. I did add a slideshow though.
