Recently, Anna Pagnucci contacted me to see if I would have a show at The Cortona Gallery at Ashford University (check out Anna's work HERE). The show is going to be called: 'A More Refined Mayhem' and it runs from October 20th until November 18 (2014). Fortunately, I have just enough time to rework/repaint a carved frame that I was not satisfied with the first time around.
Here is how Interloper looked for Merican-Tastic! II: The Son Of Tastic! back in 2013. It was my second attempt (and failure) at making a monochromatic frame for one of my painted constructions. I thought it drained the energy right out of the piece. I have wanted to repaint the frame ever since.
Several months ago I started to repaint it and then I ran into an area (an essential line demarcating one area from another) that I forgot to carve. My carving table was buried under other projects, so the 'repaint-the-frame' mission was delayed -indefinitely.
I am pointing to the freshly carved line (maybe as long as half of the length of my finger) that separates one area from the other. It required a half-hour of cleaning so I could make a 30 second cut with my Dremel Tool.
Now it is time to paint!
Ahhhhhhh, that's better. Ready for 'A More Refined Mayhem'.....
