So this is what I'm working on in the studio. Since last year I've been wanting to build a playhouse of some kind to display my work in. Since my work has so much to do with having a home and the comfort and permanence of home this seemed like the right thing to do. Honestly I set the idea aside because I was too overwhelmed by the project. I could tell my faculty really wanted me to do this, they seemed to express that at my last crit. I still pushed the idea aside out of fear. But then Cannonball came and you saw what all they did. Just watching those guys in action and seeing how they make their large sculptural pieces come to life made me realize I had to quit being a scaredy-cat. Now, with the help of my amazing boyfriend, I've started creating my house. This is just the beginning of it though I did decide to make it only have three walls because I thought it would work better in the gallery that way. I'm excited to start figuring out how I will cover the walls. I was originally going to make wall paper but now I'm starting to think fabric will be the better way to go.
Here are some pictures of the basics. I've started taking my artwork and placing it in the house to get an idea of what will go where but all that will change when the work gets framed. What do you think? Any suggestions or feedback? No one has really seen it yet so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
EDIT: To Elizabeth, in regards to the last post, I'm sorry I said you gave me hot dog fingers. I meant that in the nicest way ever. I love your hot dog fingers drawing. ( :
