I'm working on a project dealing with work/home. The idea is set in a space where both work and home occupy. It is important that the two environments coexist comfortably if one is to commit to both. There is a lack of discernible identity when an individual distributes his or her self exclusively to one or the other.
This is a pretty interesting piece for me because I'm using transparency and a somewhat crafted light box that uses light which the viewer chooses for it. The first and second image is the back view of the object. There are two panes of glass that have some space between them. The front has a sheet of vellum I adhered to it, pieces of vellum for some of the objects, pencil, pen, charcoal and paper. The back just has some vellum pieces on it. I forgot to take a picture of how the frame looks from the front. Next update.
I had to perform some surgery on two identical fixed picture frames so I could use one on the front side and the glass from both in the project. They magically fix well with the wooden frame I acquired. Some epoxy and this amazing two part clay later, I basically have what I have now. There were these ornaments I had drilled holes for and placed on the wooden frame that looked ugly so now I have some holes. I wanted it to have some sense of needing to be held by the viewer to direct it to a light source. I'm going to look for some copper/bronze plate of some sort to wrap around those parts of the frame.
The last picture is what it can look like, so far, with a light source behind it, in this case a lamp behind it and some natural light. Some interesting shifting occurs when tilting it due to the distance between the panes of glass and the strength/distance of the light source. Sunlight is really good. Sometimes it makes some other colors appear.
I'll keep this updated.

Self-portrait with a mosaic concept. This was printed on a skateboard. I don't have access to the board right now, so pictures later. You can buy it if you want to.
About my third time painting with some non-solvent based oil paint. It's a rock, it's sliding off the table.
More to come!
