i'll, more or less, be showing the work from midwestern landscapes, only, with a reconfigured layout, some updates, edits, and reassembles. this time around i'll have a much more urban space to install. and where bear's mill was beautifully rustic, and pulled all the small town, rural life vibe out of the piece; i'm hoping the concrete walls of the upland room at the murphy arts center will provide a more urban, fast-paced, and powerful vibe.
i made a few new pieces. the door to the left is the main re-do. it was a sky and power lines at bear's mill. now it is covered in patterns, buildings and people walking around on iphones. it has several layers. i actually painted it once, thought i liked it, realized it was shit, and then repainted it to get what you see at your left. but all those layers are what give it that grimy guttery glow.
i've also been using my bigger, more elaborate stencils to make some 'prints' on paper. after the success of the 5" x 5" prints w/ spray paint, i decided i should just do some copies of some of my favorite stencils. this will help use them up too. all the images are in a very limited run, because the stencils lose detail really fast, but thats great, because then i can retire them. i needed to find a way to make versions of the stencils people can actually afford, since the installations and the public art are not exactly feasible for your living room. well, maybe they are.
