Happy November! By the way, this is my favorite month - I love the weather and holiday time spent with friends and family - I can tell it's going to be a good one this year!
This past week I've been working on a lot of new things, mostly 2D and all new processes I've never tried before. Definitely uncharted territory. And I wonder if making these things that are so unlike my usual work, will ultimately impact my trajectory as a maker. Micro-musing.
This residency at TFAC gave me the space and time to make the work for my solo show Incidence my first few weeks here, and now is allowing me to develop smaller works that will be for sale in the near future. Moving into making commercial work is something that has always interested me but has seemed out of reach with the type of work that I traditionally make. But I'm up for the challenge and excited to share some of my tests with you. Below you can see some block prints, fiber paintings and embroidery.
And while I'm working on all this, I realized today that I will be installing my work for the Post-Grad Residency Exhibition at the Torpedo Factory in a month. lol. So I need to start moving on making some new work. And one last update, part of being an artist is looking for and applying for opportunities to exhibit work and participate in residencies on a regular basis. I spent a lot of the earlier part of the week applying for these types of opportunities and I always have my fingers crossed something will pan out! Dealing with the rejection can be hard, but the more you apply to, the more you get in to; it's just a numbers game, right?
