The Principle iii

Cameron and I took a good look at the gallery space this evening to plan where everything will go for the exhibit next week. I think we have a pretty good idea of how things will go, but Cameron correctly pointed out that I’ll probably change my mind by the end of the week anyway. So why do I feel the need to worry about such things now, when I can’t possibly resolve them without the work physically in the space?

Incidentally, Cameron is keeping his own blog of his experiences of helping me get the show ready for the exhibit next Saturday.

Works for the show:

The Man – large oil painting on gold leaf canvased panel

As the Crow Flies – installation of oil paintings on a large gold leaf canvased panel and smaller gold leaf birch panels

Grails (the new version with the motor) – clay grail cups, wax, string, electric motor, quartz stone

The Bottle Tree Felled (new floor configuration) – plastic water bottles, gravel, ash

The Alchemy of Demolition – pieces of building, gold

A Visit to a Lynching (crucifixion) – large oil painting on canvas

Fama – large oil painting on canvas

Blue Self Portrait – small oil painting on canvas

Blue Lynn Again – small oil painting on canvas 

Singer - small oil painting on canvas

Three Wishes – small oil painting on oak panel

Half Formed Wish – small oil painting on oak panel
