All of my work is up and on display at The Gremlin Theatre for the Ten Works exhibit. I was there on opening night, and I have to say that Theatre Pro Rata‘s production of The Taming of the Shrew is absolutely amazing, and I can’t say enough how much I recommend you go to see it. So, make a night of it! Go see a play, and take a peek at my art while you’re there!
There are three brand-new pieces on display, but for those of you who can’t make it to the exhibit (or are not from the Twin Cities area), I thought I’d post them here.
Acrylic, Newspaper. 2010.
I wanted to try something different with my portraits, so I made a collage of torn newspaper on canvas, and then painted over the top of it. The results are actually quite cool, so I’ll definitely try it again. Maybe with the Sunday comics!
Acrylic, Magazine Pages. 2010.
I tried the same concept as with Joe Strummer, except I used torn magazine pages as my base. I tried to use chunks of color as opposed to identifiable objects so that it would be easier to see the paint.
This was just done with paint, but I painted the background in blocks of color as opposed to the swirls of color I usually do.
Now that I’ve gotten the painting bug again, I don’t want to stop! Expect more paintings from me soon.
