Progress on miniature buildings and Open Studios 2017, coming up this weekend

I’ve been pasting and papering and designing all week, to launch a new project at Brickbottom Artists Open Studios 2017, this weekend, Nov. 18 and 19. I’ve been working on small sculptures of buildings and cityscapes as objects in their own right and to photograph for use in collages and other works. I like to play with perceptions of scale in my work, so I’m eager to get lost in the shadows and textures and imagined streets among these minimalized structures.

Here are some progress shots of a little factory, waiting on my totally wrecked work table for its final surface finish. Also, some super tiny castles and corporate towers that I really like, though I’m not sure how much they like me. The smaller the object, it seems, the bigger the work involved.

Don’t forget, if you’re in the Somerville, MA, area, come meet me and lots of other artists at the Brickbottom-Joy Street Open Studios 2017 event, this weekend! I’ll be showing the first towers of my little cities as well as many collages, large and small. See you there!
