Ladies that have been waiting...

Now that this semester is coming to a close, and my students grades have been submitted, it is about time to post some ladies that have been waiting!  Here are a few randoms that have been in the works, some still need a bit more photoshop love, documenting these larger ones in particular has been giving me some trouble.

Cut ups

Here is first completed piece from the figure drawings I have been doing.  I am literally cutting them up and creating new figures out of them.  I was unaware how many I would actually have to do before these would start to make sense for me...and I am getting close!  I am enjoying the spontaneity that is happening, and I am liking the unplanned things that are happening better than what I actually intended.  There is something nice to cutting with an blade vs. digitally - there is no going back!  It is kind of putting me outside my element and I am having fun with the results.

test shots for upcoming installation

Test shots for an installation proposal I am working on. This piece fits in a window and allows outsiders to see this distorted silhouette, and invites them to find the one spot where the perspective makes sense proportionally as an anamorphic illusion.

29"x43" two headed lady in progress - charcoal, screenprint

After a long night of printing, I am getting closer to completing my next print ( a series of 3 monoprints- 29" x 43")  here is a sneak peak!  I am really happy with how the drawing/print combination is going, I feel it is adding action that was needed and allowing for some nice unexpected elements as well (4 eyed heads - etc!)  I have 2 large scale mounted boards that are next on my list, the smaller of which is 45"x45"

Purdue Cancer Culture and Community (CCC) 2011

Yesterday I participated in a 12 hour Drawathon in Patti and Rusty Gallery (Pao Hall) at Purdue.  This Drawathon was done in response to the documentary "More to Live For" by Noah Hutton.  Noah Hutton is this year's Cancer Culture and Community artist coming to Purdue this year.  His documentary follows the struggle of 3 people with adult Leukemia and the importance of registering in the bone marrow database to help other struggling with Leukemia.  Six artists (Christine Wuenschel, Sagan Genesis, Monica Ferrar-Miller, Latoya Hobbs, Alexa Unser and myself)  did a response drawing from noon yesterday to midnight inviting visitors to see the progress of our piece.  There will be an opening on Nov. 4th 5-7p where the film artist along with Seun Adebiyi, a member of the Olympic Skeleton team will attend.  Seun is one of the 3 people covered in the film, and continues to search for a match to help him fight his Leukemia.

Below are some in progress and final images of our Drawathon...

a stop motion film of the progress of the piece will also be on display in the gallery - Show starts tomorrow with reception on Nov. 4th.

Lady Crunch - 22x30

Below are 3 variations of a recent print - size 22"x30".  Coupling the ideas of layering gesture, drawing, and collage screenprint.  I am pretty happy where these pieces are taking me so far and can't wait to see what comes out of them.
