Don't believe I've mentioned my long skinny boxes as yet. Most were prepared for a 2005 solo show which pulled out all the stops filling a very big exhibition room. My next show at this gallery, Feb, 2007, will be in the usual rotating exhibition space, which is smaller but still plenty big. Anyway, back to the skinny boxes (I've yet to define them, any clues appreciated) I'm back at it. Jake builds them for me and I'm in the mood to see how I might incorporate the bokusho technique with this support. Others in this series can be seen here.
Conventional works on the wall show white gel which hasn't dried yet... I like to use gel over the rice paper, but it doesn't signal the end of painting. It just helps me begin to visualize the finished work and determine what it still needs to be called finished.
