oil and mixed media on aluminum, 18″ x 46″ x 24″ and 18″ x 52″ x 24″, 2012
From the drops of Heaven and Hell.
Very excited about this review in ModAustin.net of the group show at the Wells Mason Gallery, “Seeing is Believing”. Artists shown are Jennifer Chenoweth, Larry Graeber, Jim Huntington, and Wells Mason. Review by Todd Camplin.
Oil, charcoal and graphite on plasma cut steel, set of 4, 62″x8″x8″ each
Four steel cylinders with surface drawings using a plasma cutter, pencil and brush, stand at human height, requiring the entirety of the body to move along the pipe, as if dancing. The pipes themselves are the 3-dimensional buy tramadol online no prescription steel canvas for the surface drawing in pencil, chalk and oil glazes.
Oil and charcoal on plasma-cut aluminum, 30″ x 60″ x 60″ each
Looking at process and totality, these two domes consider the concept of opposites as two parts of a whole. The shapes originated from one 4″x4″ calligraphic ink drawing that was made into a repeating atlantic pharmacy hexagon. The shapes were cut from aluminum, and the positive shapes make “Heaven” and the negative shapes make “Hell”. Heaven is axial symmetry. Hell is non-axial symmetry. The artworks go together as a set.
Now to get the pieces how to buy tramadol back to Austin in time for E.A.S.T.! Hope that’s less of an adventure than getting them to Santa Fe.
Andiamo: This body of work reengages my research of Roman architecture. I study mathematical proportion, path, axis, and patterns in plans and elevations of buildings. I am interested in how these spherical clusters relate to human scale, as diagrammed by Vitruvius. I want to understand how a sacred spaces are created architecturally and sculpturally.
These artworks are abstractions of real buy tramadol c o d architectural buildings from the Roman Empire. They are models for large-scale sculpture. I am interested in the paint and texture as a response to traditional surface decoration of domes in architecture. By constructing these shaped surfaces, I am creating sacred space for my own painting and drawing practice.
