One of these soft sculptural components didn’t make it into the finished installation. The result? Basically me wandering around outside the house with it a couple days after getting home, in a desperate attempt to come up with a gesture for The 100 Day Project. I was so tickled by the sight of this blob emerging from a strip of ferns by the driveway, of course, that now I’m tempted to take it around with me and plop it on EVERYTHING…
Versions of Loose Ends, Soft Targets, and Wavelet at McColl Center for Art + Innovation this summer through August 24th.
While there wasn’t a lot of down time outside of installing, finally noticing Jung’s, right across the street from the Center, gave me a small thrill. So did pretending I was moving to town with nothing but my suitcase and a sewing machine.
A blobful Soft Target is newly up at the home of my number one biggest fan. The last time I visited we gazed at the wall and discussed which nail to use. This time, we got it done! (Wall faux finish and installation layout all hers)
My studio space recently shrank, so I’ve been making more room at home for finished pieces and works in progress. It turns out you can fit a towering sculpture in your domestic space if you’re willing to lose the chair where you throw your clothes.
