    Grand Rapids Day 10, print prepping

    I finished with the bulk of the hard work for the sculpture and got the last of the sleeves in place this morning. This afternoon I began the prep and groundwork for what will be the Grand Rapids prints. I kinda think my print punch list above will become a print too but first I Read more...

     
     

    Grand Rapids days 8, and 9 makes me ready for 10

    Starting to find a resolution to the coffee cup sleeve line. On some level it has been the most difficult part of this since I am trying to make it do new things the sleeves have never done for me before. I hope tomorrow to get them knocked out and finished.

     
     

    Grand Rapids, 7days

    Spent today gettin my sleeve on. Focused on defining the outside wall edge, and problem solving the installation of the sleeves. Tomorrow will be a good day for laundry and powerpoint preparation. Hopefully will be setting lights, and making prints by the weekend. I still need to flesh out some areas, but should probably sleep Read more...

     
     

    Grand Rapids: day 6

    The inclusion of the Herman Miller Bench is nearly complete. Soon it will be tucked away safely inside the Grand Rapids piece for the duration of Artprize.

    With Today’s progress I am finally starting to get the play of interior and exterior experiences of the piece that I have been chasing since arrival. When approached from Read more...

     
     

    grand rapids day 5, and then there were sleeves.

    Today was a day no sleeves would die. I managed to start inserting and laying up what will be the stacked sleeve line for this show. For a while now I have been meaning to do a piece where the sleeves interact with the sticks. This show finally gives me enough setup time and space to pull this off. Plus I was able to pre-stack sets of sleeves, and brought with me sleeves that were stacked but never used for the Two Rooms installation back in January.

     
     

    Gran Rapid Da fou

    And on the fourth day npr began their September 11th 10years later coverage. It is so interesting to me, and scary that I can remember clearly when it happened. That Monday September 10th 2011, I would have been in my art history class in the morning, and in the studio in the afternoon. On Tuesday September 11th, I was in my painting studio in the morning and told about the disaster, then came back that evening determined to make better work.

     
     

    Grand Rapids Day three, oh Weeeee

    Soon the Herman Miller bench will go bye, bye. Ever since the Arkadelphia Piece last year I have wanted the chance to include a bench inside a piece, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to include such an iconic bench

    the stacked sleeve line sculpture, peeking into the corner here, should start to come into Read more...

     
     

    Grand Rapids Day 2 or the day that ended with a very nice phone call

    Day two was another lovely day working in the fishbowl. I got to witness a three car fender bender that netted me a captive audience of folks clutching their insurance and registration cards.

    So that I wouldn’t come up short on work time I began unpacking and assembling the sleeve sculpture today too.

    Although this last image Read more...

     
     

    Grand Rapids Day One

    I arrived in the gallery this morning to a familiar sight. The all too familiar stack of fresh sticks.

    I also brought with me several stacked and unstacked sections of a possible sleeve sculpture to be included in this piece.

    It is no accident that a Herman Miller Bench is here, since I am in the land Read more...
