May Solo Show WIP - Nebulous

It's begun! I've started a painting based on one of the sketches I posted a few weeks back.  It's a 26 X 30"Acrylic on wood panel.  I don't normally work this large but there's so much going on in this drawing I thought I'd give it some wiggle room.  Now these WIP shots are showing some REALLY early stages of the painting but hopefully you still get the idea. More to come 

Here's a shot on the painting on it's flattened out easel on my work table.  Thought it'd be a good way to give a sense of scale and also to show what a messy workerbee I am :)

This is just a close up of the image so far.  Forgive the awkward perspective (it's like Star Wars scrolling type angle :P)

This is the original sketch from here

So as you can see - it's got a loooooooooooong way to go but I'm excited to be sinking my teeth in to these pieces and to finally really get rolling on this May show!

Bunny Cutlet Solo Show - May 3rd, 2013

Bunny Cutlet Solo Show - May 3rd, 2013
(Still working on a title)  

Took a break from the hands series to work with some of my other brainstorm sketches for the show.  I've been playing with the idea of "oozing geometry" -  an extrusion, play-dough factory of your insides, both your physical and emotional guts.  I still haven't committed to these visuals or colors to encompass the final works for the show but I find the more you draw and experiment, the more likely inspiration is to strike. The image below is an 8 x 10in mixed media on cream colored paper. I have drawings to accompany this image also - I'll post a few later tonight.

Bunny Cutlet Solo Show - May 3rd, 2013

Bunny Cutlet Solo Show - May 3rd, 2013
(Once I have a theme name these blog titles will be easier to follow...)  

I've been working with some of the sketches from my previous post in an acrylic wash on blush colored paper. I've been looking to find a middle ground between painting and drawing so I can explore more ideas and create more pieces in the duration of my usual rushed show scheduling.  I decided to start with my "helpless hands" series...

These seem a little washed out on my monitor, hope they look better for you! I may try to readjust and repost.  I'll discuss the theme and thought behind these now or later if anyone out there is interested.  Otherwise, I hope you enjoy the imagery. 

Another update coming soon!

Solo Show May 3rd

May 3rd 2013

I'm revving up for my solo exhibit with Bunny Cutlet's new gallery space.  This is Bunny Cutlet's first year with a permanent space and my first solo exhibit here in NYC.  I'm pretty sure we are both very excited about this adventure!

I'll be posting about this show over the next few months - sketches, work in progress shots, etc.  For now I've just been brainstorming for themes and thematic imagery.  I finally feel like I'm honing in on something cohesive and comprehensive and I'm gonna start sharing some of the sketches and ideas with you on here - wee!
