Installation 2013 November - It's been a busy season and the fun has just begun. My next project, here on Lincoln Road, is Art Basel/Miami Beach and preparations are already underway. Since you last stopped by my studio, I've transformed it once again and am currently working on a new, large installation like the one you see here on the left. I should have it completed by later this week or early next.
A few years ago, I did a painting on sheer fabric where the paint was pushed all the way through to the surface behind it. I loved the results, so did everyone who saw it in the exhibition, "Homework", at the Richard Shack Gallery.
Just recently I was in a NYC gallery where an exhibition had already been hung but to keep things "under wrap" until the opening, the artist had put fabric in front of her paintings to partially obscure them. The whole look was so wonderful and I was disappointed to hear that the fabric was not a part of the work. You could only see some of the painting underneath and because of this, it offered an air of mystery and the unknown. That reminded me to return to work on the fabric layers when I got back to my studio.
