081912 – Steelstack abstract

So once this is all sealed and dried I’ll try to get a good scan of it.

This is a bit different for me. First off the artwork is somewhat inspired by a trip I took to Bethlehem, PA and to the Steel Mill (Which I called the Sleestacks the entire trip). The old steel mill which is part of the grounds is really impressive. I had a thought of an artwork when I first saw the place, but could not get it right when I sat down to work on it. So this my first attempt to get the work that is in my head onto paper.

Also this is a bit different for me. This work is used by putting the paper onto the board and then sealing it directly on the board – so that no glazing is needed in the frame. I was not a fan of this in the past b/c by sealing the work I lose the texture of the paper. This texture is really a big part of my work – so I stayed away from it. Though I got a bunch of frames  that are not big enough to support glass/acrylic so I figured this is a good time to try this technique out.
