I would love to get some constructive or thoughtful feedback on my chair project so far. Making art is useless without discussion and opinions. Right?
For those who were curious about what I’m currently working on, it’s a chair! Duh, right?
I am one of several artists participating in the Chairish The Future gala this March in Atlanta. From the website, “Chairish is a unique gala and auction that challenges talented artists and design firms to create pieces of art from household furniture for sale at the event.”
I picked up a lonely chair from The Furniture Bank of Atlanta, for whom the gala is benefiting, and got straight to work on turning it into a sculptural piece.
What exactly am I doing with it? I have no idea. Yet. I’m working on it. I want it to be along the same lines as the pieces I had up at Beep Beep last month. I have some hands in the making, and I have use an ungodly amount of yarn and plaster. Oh, how my lungs are filled with plaster dust.
Want to keep following my progress without having to look at my blog? Follow me on instagram: @kindaslightly. Everything’s tagged, #chairproject.
I have 3 days to make 3 pieces of art for a show that I’m in last minute this Saturday night.
No pressure, right?
Now I just need to figure out what I’m going to do…
So….. Flux really kinda sucked this year. Instead of there being 20+ things to look at, there were only 12, and placed in the strangest of places. gloATL, Ben Rollins, and Stefani Byrd + Wes Eastin were the only artists worth mentioning, which is great for them because their work was great and fit perfectly with the idea of Flux. Everything else? Not worth seeing. I’m so disappointed because Flux [and when it was Le Flash] was always THE thing to look forward to come October. This year? I’m pretty set on not even bothering to go next year. It’s become a joke, and makes me continue to question this sad attempt of an art scene that Atlanta no long has. Really really really disappointed.
