The House-Sized Sculpture, 2017
“Despite a lack of natural ability, I did have the one element necessary to all early creativity: naïveté, that fabulous quality that keeps you from knowing just how unsuited you are for what you are about to do.”
Steve Martin, Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life
This career in art is presently on a wonderfully nonlinear trajectory. Rather than using charcoal or paint to give definition to a flat surface, I have the chance to breathe life into a structure that was built more than 80 years ago.
The exterior was the first part of the house for some changes. It felt tired, but we knew it had potential for more life.
Soon I will begin uploading pictures from the interior transformation of the house, including the current effort of converting the basement (aka spidery dungeon where we keep our mannequins) to a finished art studio. Time otherwise spent in front of a computer will be almost wholly allocated to pounding nails or running around with my little boys, but I’ll eventually find myself in a position to leave crumbs of evidence for those who may be wondering what I’m up to.
Stay tuned, and thanks for looking!
