in progress

This semester as school is going decidedly well. Here are some images of ideas and materials I have been working with:

Top configuration of a tipi I'm currently working on, with branches gathered from both Taylor and Royal Oak.

Work in progress and experimentation with materials. branches, flourecent lights, gold thread, canvas. I need to cut more branches to fit the shape. This particular model only uses 6. The final will probably use closer to 20.

This is just a sample strip of the drawings I lay out for my Voronoi diagram paintings.

Not a clear image of the drawings, but gives you an idea. I should be applying some color to this tonight.

The base of these paintings, while not particularly difficult, is a bit painstaking... Or, maybe just for me. However, once I am finally done cutting/sanding/drawing/varnishing/scrapping all extraneous material off of the disc- I am very thankful for my Virgo-like precision. I am finally falling into a really nice place with this project, and am excited about moving forward. you should see the disc grave yard in my studio, it's tragic.
