I struggle with calendars...not physically, mentally...well, maybe I have had a paper cut by one. Sorry, re-focusing...
I have pressing deadlines at every corner I turn, but somehow I do not seem to be able to adjust my habits to comfortably meet those calendar deadlines. The deadlines are not new...they don't sneak up on me or anything. I just don't look at clocks...or the days of the week for that matter. It all blends together, rolling into the next.
Some people will say I just need the pressure in order to produce. There is truth in that, but I also think it is a weird, maybe creative-induced glitch. Either way, my purpose in writing about this glitch is to relay how new concepts emerge...usually in those late nights, under extreme pressure.
I have been playing with layering of my work within my work...I know, sounds weird. The concept is using my original paintings, printing, painting on that print, printing again, adding a section of another painting, printing, painting...you get the idea.
I started dabbling with this years ago but felt it was not a "pure" process....meaning I wasn't sure how to explain it, catalog it, or price the final results. Is the end result that gets digitized considered an original work or a Mixed Media on steroids?
Apertures is the 2nd work released under this creative formula. If you look closely you may find the relationship between Apertures and In Pieces.
