New Work (In Progress) | Crack the Sky a Lightning Series
I’ve been really inspired lately. After months spent questioning what was next and spending an almost unhealthy amount of time in my head; one morning I went into the garage and refreshed my corner studio. It took me some time to remember that I would need to create an environment that aided to my creative experiments – if not encourage them. Once I completed my studio refresh, I immediately felt good – I sat down, smiled and felt safe – I made a little cocoon of exploration for myself.
Later, I began rummaging through old experiments and came across a brass domed object that I had made a few months back. On it, I cut out a crack with very fine tail lines. I loved this piece; one of my favorite “riffs” that I had yet to figured out its’ place. But it inspired me nonetheless. After staring at if or a while, my thought went back to a couple of photos I had taken of lightning strikes on concrete. I began visualizing those strikes translated onto metal. Allowing my mind and hands to playing; slowly, my thoughts began to take form. I felt tingles inside my body (when I feel tingles they are usual a sign that I am on the right track), I was getting excited!
The excitement of curiosity is fueling me – and I feel must continue to explore and act on this idea before it fleets. I am still building this series, but if you have any inquires please contact me directly!
Thanks so much for reading,
