Quality vs. Quantity
I’m applying for my first residency (which is incredibly exciting, and incredibly nerve-wracking). I have, however, hit a small snag. They want 10 images of my work, but I only have 7 that I really care to show- not because my other work is bad, but because it’s completely unrelated.
The idea of exploring the dual present/absent nature of clouds is still a young idea (I only began it in August of last year, and barely made a dent in it by the time I graduated in December). Since then, due to a hectic schedule and impossibly small workspace, I’ve only completed one piece in that time (a few others in progress, but VERY slow progress).
As such, I only have 7 pieces that are related to what I’m doing now. What do I do to fill in the remaining space?
I’ve selected a few images that, while they don’t make sense with the group, show some of the exploration of mark/colour/scale that led me to where I am now, but I’m concerned that this will look…..tacky.
If anyone has suggestions, I’m all ears.
5-hours’ progress on a new painting.
Cloudscape 5, 3’x4’, oil on canvas.
So, to force myself out of this block, I decided it was time to start something new.
When one works on 5.5’x6’ paintings, one does not simply store it in the corner.
This picture shows you just how large the painting truly is.
Cloudscape 4, incomplete.
