For me, creating new work really starts to get interesting after applying several layers of paint and materials. When people visit my studio, they may notice my smock. Some will say they want it, exclaiming “it’s a piece of art!” Here I have photographed a cross section of an area near the front pocket. I chose this area because It has a lot of layers of paint, glue and other materials that come from attempting to clean my hands, and tools. Who knows, maybe I should frame my smock?
Currently I am working on new work for an upcoming show at Terra Firma Gallery with an opening reception on August 26. More details to follow.
