Still Lifes – Mixed Bag
These first two images are inspired by the print designs from Hermes scarves. I love the playfulness of the patterns and the whimsy created by the color and objects.
These two handsome beasts were photographed at a local kennel. Great Danes are incredibly curious and seem to be much more aware of their surroundings than most dogs. They were a bit nervous around the lights at first but they did settle down a bit. The problem is that once they settled down they would bound towards me. Luckily I was on the floor so I never got knocked over. . . but I can’t say the same for one of my light stands.
These post it notes are a continuation of my paper/color studies. I think there are quite a few things going on in terms of influence . . . what actual pixels on a screen look like, Damien Hirst, Mondrian, old video games . . . to name a few. These take a while to put together but I like the subconscious way in which I form them. Loud music for one, and no method in terms of placing colors.
