Custom 4' x 6' Abstract

A client has requested a custom abstract painting. So we have decided to document the development in the hopes of sharing a bit of the magic in creating. Abstract work can be a long, but meditative process in which the artist explores self-expression and gestural movement to build on layers in the hopes to conclude with a balanced satisfying composition. Hope you enjoy!

 

"Delitescent" Fall 2018 - Thesis Collection

This is a gallery view of Thesis work from the collection "Delitescent" which means hidden or concealed. This series of products consisted of Upcycled leather that was railroad stitched back together to create unqiue exterior detail. the handles are fabricated from segmenting small scraps of both wood, brass, and finishing with an epoxy resin.

It is in The utilitarian design of drop down compartments that truly highlights the title " Delitescent" and shares a romantic nature of re-fabricating reclaimed materials to bring to life new and functional works of art.

Project Request- Giant Flowers

These poppy flowers range from 3-6ft and are made from tissue paper, concrete, wire, and whole foods bags.

 

Upcycled Whole Foods Ivy

We never understood the concept of fake plants due to its juxtaposition of mocking a life sustaining organism and its non-biodegradable aspects of plastic greenery pollutes our precious environment. So Of course the challenge we were presented with was to create fake foliage to hang from large planters. To work around this crisis of environmental mockery we built these vines of ivy from whole foods brown paper bags. So therefore they are not only upcycled but can also be recycled.

 

Screen printing gave light to a new process of creation. This was the first experience i truly had with this form of making, but to properly embrace its flexiabilty I wanted to construct a piece of work that built on the fundimentals of art but highlighted the quality of screen printing. By creating a stencil with the screen of gems and stones I was able to water color loss designs to build on natural qualities. 

The next step was cutting out these forms and elevating from a 2D surface.
