Various artist mediums. Things related to the genre or classification of a process and/or materials used to make a creative product or deliverable. This is of course useless since all creative thinking comes from the same source anyway and as far as I know always has. But humans like boxes.
For some reason I had previously rarely incorporated human figures in my work. I decided to change that last year. I don’t think artists always “capture” a figure but rather they interpret via eye-brain-hand. The result is a sort of spiritual magic. So I am happy my life journey is taking me to this path.
I took some drawings and used them to build tableaux with Blender 3D. The first tells the story of the voyeur. I leave the meaning and interpretation to the viewer.
The next tells the story of moving out of the body. Or maybe a liberation from the body.
I have no idea why ball head is watching, or what/who ball head is. Is he disturbed? The naked cut-outs make me think of paper dolls.
One of my objectives with this site was just to simply write about what I was doing at the time without needless fanfare and pretension. My theory is that people who may be interested in what I am doing and would like that better.
I usually work on several creative projects at a time, that way they all stay fresh. I had been curious about digital or photograph printing on aluminum after reading up on it. The advantage over printing on paper is that there is no need for framing with glass, and according to research, the color should last for well over 60 years, maybe longer. The problem with the research is that until we invent a time machine and go forward in time and look at a piece of artwork in the future, we really don’t know for certain. But I feel it is probably responsibly archival enough since we will probably be dead by the time the color shows any fading. Unless the secret of life is discovered and we all can live 500 years. But if the secret of life is discovered we probably won’t care about print archival issues.
The first print came out very well on aluminum.
The square shape works more sculptural on the wall. Even though I was calling it a “mandala”, it is obviously not a perfect pattern leading to the center. I sort of twisted the concept a bit I guess.
The next ended up a bit more psychedelic.
Haven’t gotten it back yet, hope I didn’t break anything.
The next of these three seems to have come out with a different personality.
A bit more subdued then the previous, with a bit of mid-century modern.
