Sylmar Disruption

Current state of Sylmar Disruption.ย Still more to come.

Resolving the lower right, clarifying the overlapping middle distances and their interrelated moments. The freeway meander heads home…

 

 

Resolved – Digital Desert Painting

It’s finished! The photo above leaves something to be desired, so I’ll shoot some better versions when I’m able. It’s already packed and ready to head to Boston.

A few detail shots:

I’ll gauge whether or not additional pieces should be developed after critiques at the June residency–but this investigatory painting seems to have broken new ground that I am dying to excavate in tandem with the digital video projections and digital hybrid imaging.

It’s resolved enough to bring along for discussion, but paintings often invite revisitation, so I hesitate to call it truly “finished.” ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here it was a few days before completion. The upper and lower left corners are not as resolved here:

Ancient Mechanisms – Almost Done

Here is a longer scroll that’s almost finished. It still needs some experimentation with the void spaces. This semester I’ve been working toward creating a void, rather than leaving negative space within the paper. This requires very faint printing techniques, like thin, white, transparent inks, or underpainting that is then painted over, a la Diebenkorn.ย 

Some of the very faint neutral tones are washing out in the photos–another reason it’s good to see work in person. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are some earlier shots of the same scroll, as it progressed through different stages:
