Exploring my digitally printed metals is my main art agenda. This pile of 36 gauge copper, aluminum, brass and finely woven brass mesh will be a study for larger work. Thinking of cutting all the pieces in different lengths and rolling. Tubes will go together somehow. This little (very little) inch and a half wide—two inches tall— and three inches long pieces blocked out my original thoughts on this piece. The little prototype was created almost two years ago, but the new printed surfaces are from the last few months.
This very little study is a bit banged up from me moving it all over the place or it getting lost under a pile on my table, but it still tells me the direction I’m contemplating.
Metals intrigue me both for printing and assembling/constructing. One of the neat things about this type of soft metal is that it can be constructed similar to fabric or other fiber surfaces. In that vein these 36 gauge pieces are pliable so they can conform easily for all sorts or configurations. Just one of the many projects being set up for my new body of work with metals.
You can see other see other art going on in my studio from the main menu on the site. Digital Alternative Studio>Artwork. I like to post what is going on in my studio with my artwork on that part of the site.
