This is now a portrait of Adam 50 years after the garden. Added a light wash to sink into the scraffitto. The eyes may or may not be white, I think I will emphasize the humanity of the form and render the pupils, it has been a debate. I was also thinking about adding a […]

Been a while

It has been a good week. I ran the kiln twice and plan more firings in the near future. Need to finish somethings I started this summer. Excited to finally be working and expressing. Have missed it.

Process

I’ve been much more expressive in my process lately. I can only think  that this is driven by the long break that I took from working, but also I think a return to loving comic books. I believe reconnecting with the first love of art and illustration through the comic book art form has really […]

Finally back to full steam. Finishing off this bust I started back in July. Got 4 works in the glazing stage and then it’s onto the next work, which will be partial figurative boxers and boxes. I also want to try rigging up a cantilever wall brace so I can start to do works that […]

Worked up these two within about 1 hour this morning. I still need to cover the forms and add legs and necks, but I’d like to run out a few more of these as glaze / texture tests. I’m planning on starting a new bust form in the next couple of days and I also […]

Spent about 4 hours completing this figure in the studio. I’m getting a little stagnant on my efforts so decided to change it up a bit and allow the work to take on a heavier tone. This work I’m thinking about calling “wound”

Walking Man

I think the original intention was to do an actual figure of a man in a trench coat walking vigorously, but the  thing seemed too challenging so I broke it down into multiple parts for assembly. It’s time I think to regroup after this is completed and try again. My next work after this is […]

I think this took about 10 hours of effort in the build. The refinement process took the longest time. My biggest challenge was figuring out the overall structure the completed build. I decided to seal the top of the skirt, then do a cross shaped slab construct on the inside that would go from the […]

To date this is the most popular form I have created. I’ve had at least 5 offers to buy this, unfortunately my friends who offer don’t really have any money, so this remains in my collection. I am however thinking about doing a series of resin editions which would have a price point that is […]

If my energy could even be half of the energy of the great artists of today and yesterday my life would be incredibly blessed. Recently in Charlotte at the Bechtler Museum I tuned into the wonderful energies of Niki De Saint Phalle. I especially liked the action expressionism of her earlier relief works. I think my […]

Inner Nature – tricks, trinkets or mojo

By on April 17, 2016 in Build, Philosophy with 0 Comments

I was talking to Louis St. Louis at my Carrboro Art Center show about my work. He likened the texture and emotion to something akin to voodoo totems and he suggested I start playing on the concept of the reliquary . I argued a bit about this as I am spiritual and believe in energy […]

http://luxmovingimage.tumblr.com I’m going to really start taking some emotive and visual queues from film making. I started exploring surfaces yesterday, something I wanted to start last month in honor of the TJ Erdal workshop I had to forego due to expenses. Also I had wanted to join Cristina Cordova at Penland to do the animated […]

By on April 3, 2015 in Philosophy with 0 Comments

This is a work I did years ago that has always had a quality I really like. The graphic 2d 3d interplay is interesting to me, I just never had a sense of the “architecture” around this idea. I’m slowly gathering steam around this to perhaps do a small series to get my hand back […]
