My abstract paintings are progressing mightily. My photography skills are not.

Huge Triptych in Progress – Part 1

December 6, 2008

A few weeks ago I got six absolutely gigantic stretched canvases (36×48 inches). I’ve started a triptych with three of these and have been documenting its progress. It’s maybe about halfway done, but who knows? Anyway, here is the process so far:

  • (This is when it turned into an accidental representation of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Not necessarily a bad thing, but not what I’m going for.)

  • (Still in the de-thrillerization process. And that’s how it currently stands.)

More New Paintings and My Problem with Critiques

November 9, 2008

I really loved my time at the Kansas City Art Institute and all that institution taught me about learning how to learn. The school was excellent in my opinion, and I cannot discount what the professors and curriculum taught me about good art.

That being said, it is awesome to be able to make art without trying to stay within the confines of an assignment or threat of critique. Most critiques I’ve been involved with have not done anything to improve my art.

Sure, critiques are excellent opportunities for others to go on and on about making no sense at all, but I’m done with all that. My art is something that I have critiqued within myself, and any other blathering about it is cool and all, but not necessary if one is completely sure of one’s work.

Here are three more large acrylic paintings that are looking almost finished, but still in progress:

It’s from a dvd cover, which may or may not be lame, but damn. Here’s a photo of the piece in progress:

The hammer is there to provide dramatic tones and intimidating imagery…
