New works in progress...

Thursday, March 19, 2009

I have been in a creative funk the last month. Pretty overwelmed with so many ideas floating around my head, but nothing really catchy enough to play with. I knew I had to do something to get out of the funk, and I remembered what my professor Sam Fields said.. Just work. Just do it. Start painting or whatever and it will come to you, and the ideas will come. So that is what I did. I started with what I know, the pour but expanded on it and redefined it, but 'animating' it with the outline. My influences include Dr. Seuss, Disney's Alice in Wonderland and Second life, as well as Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. I have also been dabbling with the idea of escape. Especially in our society today, I believe we are all trying to escape the dark times we are in right now. Whether its into Virtual Reality, Movies etc... I escape into my painting, and ok yes Second Life...hahaha But that is ok. I think my love of maps really comes out in a couple of these works. Especially the idea of islands and contour plains. Another place to escape too?
I love these works though. I think I have found a niche that I am happy to expand on. I am going to continue playing around. The next couple pieces I am working on have the background a solid color. So we will see how those come out.
These pieces here are in order of when they were done. The top piece was first, and so forth. I'd love to know what you think. Thank you all so much for your support!!!
