    Conway Day 10, printy in pink

    Since I never know what I am going to run into when working in borrowed print studios, I always love the little discoveries that come with printing on the fly on borrowed equipment. The great discovery at Coastal’s print studio was a huge cache of silver metallic etching ink. I had already been thinking about making these new sleeve prints in a reddish color, and thus 2012’s first editions became metallic pink java jacket prints.

     
     

    Conway Day 8

    I  spent today and Yesterday resolving the stick form physically and laying in the final bits of “mud” on the wall. After a string of 12hour days, the ten hours today almost seemed like a break. I can tell I am on the downhill of this one as my punch list now consists of clean Read more...

     
     

    Conway Day 6

    I was able to get the first pass of the coffee stain on the wall. Next I will keep layering up the pattern a little bit to build up the swirls, after that I will remove the tape and complete the pattern.

    I’ve been thinking about the process with this piece as my Richard Long moment. Read more...

     
     

    Conway Day 5

    Spent Most of the day fleshing out the woven form, now looking forward to tackling some more of the stain.

     
     

    Conway Day Four

    I managed to continue laying in some of the outer edges, and started the wall staining. There was something very satisfying about mixing espresso dust and water to make my paste/mud for the wall. It kind of reminded me of my first british inspired works scattering espresso dust in 2005. I’ve now crossed the half Read more...

     
     

    Conway Day Tre

    I started to lay in the outer edges of the woven form, and work on the areas where it will overlap the sleeve sculpture. Looking forward to starting fresh in the morning and tackling more of the sticks, and maybe finish taping off the coffee stain wall if I remember. 3 days down, one week to go, the clock is officially running, and so am I.

     
     

    Conway Day too

    Day two saw the laying in of all three elements and the beginning of the great buildout. It took most of the day to get the first edge of the sticks set, as well as a marathon series up and down the ladders elevating the sleeve line into its resting place. I am also working slowly on the final taping of the coffee ground wall drawing and hope to start staining that by the end of the week

     
     

    Conway, Day 1

    Weaving. Stacking, and Staining opens on the 19th. Like the title suggests my ten days in Myrtle Beach will be consumed with said activities. but before that I will be measuring, taping, prepping and pacing. Maybe sleeping too.
