There are two big windows looking into my studio space from the outside workshop area in the Education Department. I immediately hung my name to claim my space and begin my process here.
The space stills seems sparse to me, which is distracting. I like more visually cluttered places.
Since I've moved in, I've been working old pieces doing experiments. I'm planning out my next series of work and need to run a few experiments to inform what I'm doing.
The more I work on these pieces, the more I realize I need to do some workshops with other artists. I need to learn some new techniques and spend more time on formal elements in my designs. There are so many variables and I have to limit what I'm trying to figure out or I get confused and overwhelmed. Dying combined with applying texture to achieve certain effects is what I'm currently working on. I have some images in my mind of what I want to do, understanding how to best convey those images, (or ideas), is the ever burning question.
