Week 45 of 48

December 13, 2010

One more week of residents on campus, then two weeks of break before the next session comes and 2011 begins. Part of me wishes I was staying for more of the break so I could enjoy resident free studio time, but I also can’t wait to get out of here for my longest break from this place yet…

The suit of armor is almost done after working way too hard on it the last couple weeks. It won’t be totally finished until the weekend, but here is a shot when it was about half completed… I actually like it more with some parts missing so I may play around with which parts to include and which to leave out.

I also had an incredible studio visit with Ed Smith this weekend. He yelled at me for thinking I’m not ready to show and adamantly insisted that I show the piece in the city as soon as possible. Like. Now. It reminded me of my first ever studio visit with Sheila Pepe a year ago, which really confirmed my decision to pursue fine art as a career. Ed was my last studio visit of the year and a great way to end 2010. So, once I have some good photos of the armor and grad apps and the website are done, I can focus my admin work on submitting it to as many places in the city as possible until someone agrees to show it. Although the rock candy is stronger than most of my work to date, it still has a limited lifespan and I can’t imagine it lasting more than a couple years. All the more reason to show it within the next year if I’m going to show it at all…
