Art Every Day, Wednesday, March 28, 2013
Here is today's new piece. It's an ode to Kandinsky, but not very well done I'm afraid. We'll start with the fact that I put the bits and pieces too far apart and left too much negative space inside the composition which left me without enough around the edges. But, I'm really diggin' the depth. Look how that violet arc looks like it's floating above the green below it. I don't know why it's doing that other than the fact that it is physically sitting on top of it, but why the floaty effect?
Anyway, I didn't really have anything to prove today other than that I could get the piece done, that and doing Kandiskyish composition ain't as easy as it looks. Simple top stitching in black cause I was too damned tired to switch out thread color all night and tight stippling in the negative space do help to unify and push the whole mess of color and shape to the fore ground.
I'm tired tonight and I'm the new tenant at 43 11th St. in downtown Denver. Soon, I will be opening the doors to Wild Heather Design Studio & Gallery.
