I have been busy since the quilt bomb, and have several new works to post. The first I call Channeling Gehry I and is inspired by architect Frank Gehry’s skyscraper at Beekman Plaza in NYC. While it hangs on the wall, it is really more a 3D sculptural work (96′ x 12” x 4”. It has 7 layers of surface design and is designed to be hung 8′ from the floor and flow onto the floor. The trick was getting it to hang like I wanted it to, and I had to try several experiments.
I am calling it Channeling Gehry I because I am considering re-making it in silk to get a better luster from the fabric. Showing it out of town is going to be difficult as ‘some assembly is required.’ I apologize for the lighting on the photo….it is my own and I don’t have all the lighting I need for such a large piece. Some detail shots are below.
I am considering making it even taller next time….what do you think? More new works will follow later in the week.
