After I was shown to my studio in the MacLean building on Sunday the 17th, I immediately ran to Blick and got some canvas and paints--I'm playing with fluorescent acrylics which I don't normally use. I've essentially been making the giant page of a sketchbook. I may sew a pole pocket across the top, to be hung like a banner from either a dowel or rope. Or maybe I'll just cut it up and puzzle the pieces back together.
I had a fantastic studio visit with Kelly Kaczynski the other day who suggested that instinct and intellect are partners, rather than opposing forces, and that I make an encyclopedia of habits, among many other great insights.
Now looking closely at Kerry James Marshall and Amy Sillman (whose work I knew), as well as Keltie Ferris (whose work I didn't know [and it is great])
Here are some in-progress images taken at various times between Jun 17-Jun 26.
