I haven’t actually had a chance to work in my new studio, but I did drop some things off. I am really excited about it, especially going into spring with the possibility of having the garage door open and enjoying the lovely weather.
I think Sofia will mostly be using the garage door side this summer so she can take advantage of the light in her photographs. I will mostly be on the side with the hard wood floor, and then when it gets colder, we will both shift to that space to take advance of the furnace. Former studio renter and good friend MB left us each a bucket that says “Lets do this” that we can now use as our personal potties.
And I am super excited about this new work in progress. I am thinking of it more as a sketch…practice for more to come. Doesn’t it straddle that line between repulsion and beauty?
The little pustules are latex finger tips stuffed with fiber fill and dry paint pigment. I had thought it would be a flat piece of felt with these things coming off of it on the wall, but now I think the felt actually needs to be a three-dimensional shape coming off the wall itself. The outside edge of the felt is just too flat. More to come!
