More Of The New

This week, I finished hanging up my second large scale artwork. Stay tuned. There will be more to see in the coming weeks.

That said, I am looking for volunteers to help me hang these really large works. I have tried alone and it’s too difficult. It’s just too large. Too many wrinkles.

If you’re in Atlanta and are interested in giving me a hand installing these, please let me know. You must be able to work after dark and willing to get messy.

New Direction

So, I’ve been telling you all that I’ve been working on something big. As you can now see, I wasn’t joking around. Last night, with the help of a couple of friends (shout out to Damon & Jeff), I installed the first of my new large format pieces of art.

This is my new direction. The work is comprised of many panels and is 8 feet tall and 50 feet wide in total.

Here are some pictures of the preparation, installation and the final result.

Watch this space, there is more to come.

Let It All Hang Out

I am a Professor of Foundation Studies at the Savannah College of Art & Design – Atlanta (SCAD-Atlanta). Most people that have visited this site already know this. If that is not the case, now you know. This coming week, I’ll be talking about my artwork at school. The plan is to cover a lot of area, both content and working process. In addition to addressing present concerns, I want to touch upon my past ideas and future goals.

I’ll be ready. Time to let it all hang out.

The Final Night Of Preparation

Tonight is the last night of working in the studio for this exhibition. Tomorrow I load up the panel van and drive everything to the gallery. Once again, I survived the multitude of battles that take place in the studio of the artist. I plan to write more thoughts on that subject at a later date. For now, it’s showtime. Finally.
