holy cats, the launch pad gallery is closing after like 6 years of rewarding and hard work promoting artists. it’s a sad time, but also a good time for the gallery’s amazing crew. they have worked tirelessly (and mostly as volunteers) for so many years to benefit the world of contemporary art, in portland and around the country. cheers to the launch pad!
i have a small piece in the very last group show at the gallery. it’s an ink, acrylic and graphite drawing titled “coming in”. see the picture below… but in a nutshell it’s about the tide.
if you are in or near portland oregon, please go see this amazing show. there are 100 pieces, from 100 broad ranging talented artists. here is a radio interview with ben pink, about it all, airing this tuesday on kboo – http://kboo.fm/node/36854!
my little drawing is part of the problem solving process for a new film i’m working on. the film is about the ocean, and is primarily done with stop motion (hey that rhymes)… so far there are fabric and drawing elements, but it will of course be much more complex than that – it’s me, and i love the complicated bits. oh the time consuming fun i’m having so far. (that means i won’t be done for a while, but i will post it as soon as it’s done.)
i’m including a picture from the new film (this is from the practice run, it probably won’t make it into the final film). and i am including a picture of my piece that’s showing at the launch pad this coming month.
thank you for your continued support!
ps don’t forget to check out the google view of the launch pad to see some good pictures of my 2010 show, emergence! so glad the google people went to lpg when they did, i love these pictures.
rough draft for a scene from my new film.
this small drawing is worth an upclose view at the second to last launch pad gallery show, in portland oregon, in july of 2012! it’s got the same name as the new film so far, ‘coming in’, and is about the tide… coming in.
