Goal: To create one piece of work each day for 365 consecutive days
It is official. I am lucky enough to have landed some studio space at Rendition Gallery, a local joint here in Ft. Collins! I got all moved in yesterday and am super excited and a wee bit nervous for the opportunity to work and show there.
The downside to this big move is that my time spent working alongside Box (the cat) will be greatly diminished. I do, however, gain significantly more human interaction – with really great artists, no less.
My first official, completed project in the new space was this cut paper design. I feel like choosing to do a cut paper piece was a great decision for yesterday. With nerves being a bit high, it was a good way for me to relax and just enjoy the process of creating.
As for Box; his crying upon us getting home leads me to believe he is not as happy with the situation as I am.
Oh – If you’re in Ft. Collins, CO, over the next six months, stop on in. I’d love to see you!
Original piece available for purchase.
Wow. I confess I associate cut paper with fairy tale illustrations and market-place-kitschy-children’s-profiles. Now yours really show what you can do with the medium. Beautiful.
Do you draw and then cut, or just cut away?
So wonderful – congratulations on the studio space! This cut out is really something special – beautiful work!
Thank you very much! I am pretty excited about it!
As for the cut paper, they have definitely been great to explore. -Glad you like them.
Thanks a ton! You should check out Beatrice Coron’s work when you get a chance. http://www.ted.com/talks/beatrice_coron_stories_cut_from_paper.html. Her stuff is what inspired me to take a crack at this. My first attempt I drew out a pretty simple design. My second attempt I drew out a more complicated design and got confused as to what should stay and what should go. Attempts 3 & 4 I have just cut away.
First, I like this, missed it on my phone. b) how big is this art? III. Where is your new studio?
First, gracias senor! Thank goodness you found it! b) 11 x 14″ III. Rendition Gallery. 251 Jefferson St. Fort Collins
Congrats on the studio space! I look forward to what your new setting will inspire. :D
Gracias, Tyler! The space is downtown. So with all the interesting characters and frequent happenings, I should’t be lacking in the inspiration dept.:)
