013110 – Locked

So the piece “locked” is completed. The piece consists of the main part which is the heart and then the 8 keys. Each of the nine pieces will be framed separately – but it is all one piece. This piece is outside of my normal comfort zone – but I enjoyed working on it. The piece will be displayed at an upcoming show called “Lust” which will be held in 3 gallert spaces in the Hyattsville Arts District: Design Studio Art Gallery, artdc Gallery, Cheryl Edwards studio. (more info on facebook)

The heart is roughly 9″ x 12″ and will be in a 16″ x 20″ frame, the keys are each roughly 3″ x 5″ and will all be in a 5″ x 7″ frame. The work is $650 for all 9 parts.

–UPDATE 030610 – Posting this for this week’s Illustration Friday theme of “Brave”. I am posting this because I had a very brave friend who in 2009 had open heart surgery. He has healed wonderfully!!!!!

    Your work is amazing……the keys are a great idea. It does make my hand hurt to look at it.

    This is amazing! I love the detail you’ve put into the heart, and I just want to try all those keys and see which one fits :) Fabulous concept beautifully executed.

    I’ve been looking at your work for some time now, whenever I visit my brother in the studio you share with him. Yesterday I was doing some more focused admiring, complete with Tom’s enthusiastic narrative of your process. I’m certainly impressed.

    I like the concept of extending a work beyond it’s expected boundaries (I have several tryptiichs on my walls — I probably misspelled the word), especially when it tells a story or makes a point.

    Which (if any) of the keys fit? Are there a finite number of keys available? Once we’ve used the keys in our search for the right person, is that it? At a minimum it would appear we’d better be careful with our key distribution, lest we run out by being too free with them before we’ve found the one that fits.

the art

All my artwork is made of paper. It is only created using paper, glue, and patience. The works on this site represent the pieces that I am attempting to create each weekday. These pieces are available to purchase and once an original is sold prints will become available. Other work can be viewed on my main site - www.sagworks.com. Larger works are available to purchase as originals or prints through sagworks.com. I am also available for commissioned pieces.
