Fantastic news. 7.5.2011.
I started my cumulative portfolio, “I’m considering the square,” in November of 2010. And now, 9 months later, I have completed the portfolio. Just this morning, Amanda and I sat at the kitchen table and debated 6o some pieces to the final 49, which are the strongest representations of an idea born in the summer of 2004. The 49 pieces are each perfect squares. Each piece will be perfectly printed on aluminum at a perfect size of 48 x 48 inches. I’m going to Milwaukee Summerfest for the next couple of days to lounge, see bands (especially Michael Franti) and get my mind away from my art. When I return, I will jump into the foreign art market. I will find galleries and art world personas that understand me, my art, and my vision. You see, my work, which is built of the local, is completely foreign and exotic to art patrons living 7,000 miles away. The three pieces associated with this post come from the portfolio. The marketing of the portfolio will unfold before our eyes.
