Last weekend I was in an art show for Hurley called Blacked Out. Here is one of the pieces I did for the show. The title of this piece is called "Airborne Ranger" This piece was based off a very respectable co-worker of mine... He was an Airborne Ranger. The part that will help explain this piece a little better is the fact that his office is all white, and I mean ALL white. He has a blank canvas behind his desk, acrylic chairs, acrylic desk, and a single white "designer" toy. He gets it, a true believer of negative space. So this one is for you Jeb, I salute you.
So that is the back story. Now a little more about the work. this was the first time I have glued up acrylic and let me tell you... it is truly and art form and I have a whole new respect for those who work daily with this delicate yet bitch of a material. I wired 5 Fluorescent lights together but cover over two to give a shadow. If you didn't see my below post about the show it was all based off of two colors. I decided to use shadows and light to create the two colors for this one. In the end I was glad I added the acrylic case around it, no matter how frustrated I got. Oh and I managed not to shock myself on this one.
