Finally completed, framed, and shipped off my work for an upcoming show. Amusingly enough, I actually have work in two shows opening this February. This one in California and another one here in Seattle. The work above is one of a series of four (you can see the other three on my website). I didn’t end up making a whole lot of new work last year, but I’m hoping that I’ll be really productive this year.
It was also nice to go back and create some color pencil drawings which I haven’t made for a couple of years. They’re fun to do and the process of making a series of four pieces was a great experience. It was important that I specifically made them one at a time from Spring through Winter. They represent an annual cycle of renewal, in keeping with the theme of the show they were made for. I’ve heard that they are trying to bring me down to Arcata for the show, but not sure when that may be happening. It would be fun though! Details about the show are below:
Fixing the Earth: NOW sheds light on the traditional tribal practice of healing the earth through World Renewal Ceremonies. The exhibit highlights an on-going dialogue about World Renewal and art between the artists, cultural leaders and community members.
