This month, for my February 12 x 12 x 12, I continued investigating intentional repair. My interest began when a friend brought the topic up at dinner a few months ago. That led to my thinking about how to create work inspired by my putting the parts of the whole back together again. For me, the whole is a monoprint of a construction fence.
Coincidently enough, right after I started thinking about, and working on repair, I saw the work of Nancy Selvage who is working in a really exciting way on the same theme with porcelain shards.
My January 12 x 12 x 12 was the first "sketch" for a new series I'm working on. My February is the second, and more successful “sketch.” My plan is to create 8 new very large pieces in this series, all on stiffened fabric.
The yellowy color in the photo is metallic gold paint. It doesn't show up well in the photo.
