While I worked on the drawing, it was bringing me calmness. I've been told that looking at it also brings an intriguing calm to a space. It makes sense because as I created it, the process became a meditation upon time, space and my existence that season. The studio plants were alluring and full of life.
Like the majority of my art, it is made of hand-drawn imagery that is conceived with new media applications like digital drawing, painting & sculpting. I stayed true to the Art by placing importance on traditional observational practice while I drew.
This is the first edition of the work which was completed in 2014 and measures 48"x48". It was completed for an exhibition. After the positive reception of the art at the event, I committed to create it in two different types of editions for future collections:
- a 2-dimensional poster print
- and a 2.5-dimensional artwork. The most intriguing rendition of this drawing is what you're viewing on this post. It is in the form of layers of plexiglass for a 2.5-dimensional artwork.
Conceptually, this work relies on the evolution of the image through my mark-making process. Because I draw and paint from observation, this artwork is the accumulation of thousands of moments of looking with layers of multiple visual insight.
In addition to this framed edition mentioned in this post, I have several artworks available that are unframed from 5"x5" up to 48"x48". View them here.
