I’ve been making these airbrush works for 6 months now and am finding that they collage really well. Within these compositions I’ve been discovering crops that eventually I’d like to transfer to canvas (or wall space) and render at a much larger scale. This will obviously slow down my output and have left me at odds with the medium. Should I print these? Paint them? project and trace? Would any gallery want to show these pieces? I have over 100 works now and have been considering HQ scans and putting a book together. Anyone care to critique or offer thoughts?
This piece is called “suds”. Its based on one of my favorite pastimes as a kid; a trip to the car wash. A trick of the light Interacting with the soap, back lit on your windscreen and creating a drop shadow within the glass. All this while the mist in the air refracts light akin to a prism, revealing the full spectrum of color sifted through gleaming wet machinery.
When I was young I believed an octopus lived inside the car wash and passed you through it’s mechanical body. The bulk of my work is coming from a place of childhood naïveté, coupled with my experiences as an adult. I try to steer clear of discussing these pieces conceptually; as if the very notion turns people off but I feel these little micro-narratives can provide important insight into my creative process.
