In the Studio

I’m in the final preparations stage for my upcoming show at Crane Arts in Philadelphia. The show titled Overflowing runs from March 13th through April 27th with openings on 2nd Thursdays, March 13th and April 10th, 6-9 pm.

I’m working on a show statement and choosing what will be in the show. I think of a show as a work of art in and of itself. It’s like a musical composition. The placement of the works to create flow and and overall impression is so important and can make or break a show. This is difficult as I add new pieces that may not relate directly to older pieces. 

Scroll down to see my dilemma about the sculpture I’ve been working on.

I painted a background on linen for my new silk sculpture but now can’t decide if I should use it or not. I think it would look cool pinned right to the wall but labor intensive if I have to use a hammer to drive in each pin. So many decisions.

I’m just working with a small piece of this sculpture to try to make a decision about how to present it. I like both ways, hmm, what to do?
