Here is the new work I created for my Uncanny Valleys solo show. Most of them involved 3D fractals I created in Mandelbulb 3D and then continued to paint over and manipulate until I came up with the surreal landscapes you see. I used this technique in my Fearful Symmetry and Premorse solo shows as well! Continue reading
Undine premiered November 14, 2015 at the “WONDER” art exhibit held by OneLife East in Evansville, IN as a 16×20 canvas and will be on display there until January.
Hope you enjoy her as much as I enjoyed making her!
A lot of people have resonated with this cute digital painting of two children navigating the sea of outer space on their home-made rocket, powered by a star. I’m even proud to say it took 1rst Place at Digitized back in 2011! It’s knocked around town in several places and forms (more on that next post) and finally come to settle on Society6 and Redbubble. But there’s more to the children’s story:
This piece actually has a place in my personal mythology. The two children are the same kids from Atomic Jazz!
These two children are my son (right now still in pre-school, I aged him for these pictures) and the little sister I thought he might end up having one day. This little sister is also one of the two possible children filling out the mysterious raincoat in The Seashore:
I made these three pieces when I had my son and was aware I was going to have a younger child to accompany him through life, but didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl. The little girl would have been called “Violet,” and so that is her name in these pictures. I did eventually have my second child, a merry little boy! And so “The Seashore,” which I deliberately kept ambiguous, turned out to be the first picture of him in my series of fantasy children.
This piece featured recently in my November 2013 solo show as a collage with added thread and bead elements augmenting the tentacles. I may make more little collage pieces from it for the upcoming April 5th Art in the Wild show at Wesselman’s Nature Center in Evansville, IN.
Did this baby a couple of years ago for my kids, although I wanted to make it so that people could envision the child as either a boy or a girl.
