I've been working on weekends for the past three weeks to come up with things. "Things" are going well, but I am continually reminding myself not to get too confident, as I still believe some aspects of my work need tweaking.
Here are some previews of parts to the whole:
My goal is to not only make nice, fabric-y pieces, but to do so in such a way that they could be stand alone sculptures or spread out for an installation effect. Yeah, my work goes both ways.
I found out that the whole thing will be funded though the center, including travel and installation costs. This is a huge step up for me. I feel like it is a precursor to the big time and even if it isn't, I think some amazing opportunities can arise from this experience.
My art is getting better every week. I anticipate having strong body of work by the Aug. 22 deadline.
PS The info on the show is Sept. 2, 2011 - Jan. 7, 2012 at the McColl Center for Visual Art, 721 N. Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC.
