When I started this blog nearly two years ago, I was returning to really familiar art terms from an earlier time. I have been to so many places in my work that I guess I will continue to recapitulate in some manner that is familiar now and for the rest of my career.
I am now pushing out boundaries in the sense that I never included photography in the 1980s mixed medium pieces. But, who had access to digital at that point, and I might have but there was the price of film and printing.
Yesterday, I went to one of my old favorite toy stores, Home Depot. I bought one vinyl floor tile and Japan drier, scooped up a few samples of vinyl tiles, and snagged two pieces of free wood. Since the work has much to do with structural decay, the texture and colors of the tiles made sense. I was also looking for textured surfaces that I can paint. For 89 cents, I get 12″ x 12″ that are all ready to go.
As I continue to organize the KAA Moderns Group, I am also getting myself set for these shows.
