Using my trusty cell phone camera I captured a recent digital print on canvas after unwrapping. Yes I know it’s blurry and the color from the snapshot is a little off. There is a bit more greenish tint in the real print. I was aiming for the green/red play of color. The colors of cell phones are dependent on the amount of light in the room I suppose.
My thinking here is that this illustrates the good feeling one gets when a lot of ideas start coming together. Of course other people may see other things, and that’s fine. As long as the eye can entertain the mind.
Below is the image flat on.
One thing I should point out is that the construction of this image is totally digital. I am not reproducing an image of an “original” artwork, such as a drawing on paper or a painting.
It blows my mind how printing technology has evolved. I love the power of paint on canvas, and I suppose it will always live on. Photography tried to kill it over 100 years ago but as though it were some sort of life form it evolved and survived. But archival printing on canvas offers a new approach to the old fashion single object hand painted object.
The first canvas print came from the printer a few weeks ago. I took a picture to illustrate scale. Please note that due to lighting conditions with my cell phone snapshot the colors are not exact.
This is the first of a group of work that I want to make to target the interior design market. That sounds rather commercial and it is. There is no reason why people in offices, commercial spaces, or residences should be in an insipidly decorative box. I know from my experiences lightly stimulating color and pattern can feed the mind. Here is an article related to art in offices expanding this idea.
The title, A Solution to a Problem, is a reference to the acceleration of motivation that occurs when a challenge (business or life) is met with a possible solution.
The archival print medium can provide a high quality art object yet can be replicated. I think of it as though it is a piece of furniture. And I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Below is this image flat on.
Thank you for taking the time to read this update as I continue to roll out my art business.
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.
