I'm quite disappointed that the sugar crystals do not seem to be forming in the really large container, so today I started making 5 smaller hanging armatures for growing sugar crystals.
Today I discovered a provocative artist named Máiréad Delaney. Her work is conceptually and aesthetically really strong.
One of the other collage artist brought me an older medical book with great illustrations. I spent the day cutting out slices of hearts. I didn't finish anything, but played around with a few different arrangements.
I created metal stand-off spacers for "I Transition I". After looking through many fastener bins at the hardware store, I found a few different options, but they were too long. I decided to go the cheap route, but a lot more work! I bought an extra long bolt, cut it into four equal pieces, and drill small holes in one end. It took me much longer than expected.
I was drinking tea today and noticed the dried milk and sugar on a spoon rest. It was sitting near my recent edition of Sculpture magazine, which prompted me to take many pictures.
Today was curious in that I had some amazing experiences drawing, but ended up with little on the paper that I like.
Received my frames and experimented with different colors for the interior backing and sides. I also practiced painting on the back side of acetate and vellum.
I found a picture of a painting by Hermann Nitsch. I've always liked his work, but this looks so much more controlled than I'm used to. I want to do a little research later.
I was curious about this artist as well, Thomas Wilfred. He seems to paint with light, but will have to check out his website.
