This is a new series of posts documenting my process of creating a new studio. The space will serve as a personal art studio. Heavybubble HQ and gallery space. This requires some careful thought. Gathering requirements, physical attributes and needs; all contribute to a successful outcome.
Ok. Soon I will go crazy if I don't take a trip to friend Peter Fraterdeus' printshop. Been talking about making letterpress prints of Egyptian Waters for months now. Time to stop talking and head out there on a ROAD TRIP. Will be taking sheets of Rives BFK but will look at printing on some handcrafted sheets too.
About Exquisite Letterpress :
Getting work photographed professionally is an adventure. I have a very kind friend that is going to do this for me. Yes, I will give him a nice gift. It is essential that I determine how I will mount some of my larger drawings, drawings on vellum and synthetic paper.
Ok, I'm embracing the chaos and our virtually useless economy. I just want to make some art. It looks as though I may be moving from my currently only half unpacked studio,
Economics are tossing my studio about like half a cork in a turbulent ocean. Everything is up in the air and I'm unsure of where I will land. I'm packing again. In the meantime I try to sketch and work on some installation ideas and large scale work. I hope I will be able to make some art soon.
Yes. I have started work on the new studio space. The glass counter is in place on a series of drawers were I can store almost anything. Things are a bit more ahead than this photo. It's very exciting. Unpacking and organizing supplies for a new space. It's actually fun now. Hope to have a series with the progress in the next few days up on monday. Until then I'm organizing drilling, hanging and assembling.
Visitors will be welcome soon.
Ok, I know everyone is wondering when I'm going to have my new heavybubble site ready. It's a bit embarrassing to be a founder in a company and not be using its product.
The truth is I've been making everyone else's bubbles and getting our first heavybubble event : makingFIVE off the ground. The show is pretty darn good for our first. So that's why I'm not ready. Ok that's not all. I just haven't gotten my work organized. That's the hardest part; determining exactly what you want to show up where and in what order.
