"Kaliedoscope of Kyoot" - Clutter Gallery, NY
It is time for my second appearance at Clutter Gallery this year! And I felt so honored to be invited ones. Now twice! And with TWO pieces this time too. I did have the chance to do three, but I totally ran out of time in the end so two had to do.
I chose this 8" Qee to work on as my platform this time. I've had this sitting in my cupboard ever since I started customizing I think. And I've had a million different ideas for it, but never started working on it. I thought this was the perfect platform for the job in hand though.
It was one of those times when I didn't do any sketch before I started working on her. So I didn't know exactly where I was going. All I knew was that I wanted her to go with the artwork I had done for the show as well, so I went within the same style. She looks pretty different from what I normally would do. And I guess that was on purpose. I really wanted to try something new, or something in a different direction.
And this is the result of that... A very cute one I think!
I spent an awful lot of time on masking and getting that flower to stay together. It doesn't matter how fed up I get with masking sometimes though. It is always the best way to clean lines and therefore I don't mind the suffering HAHA!
I enjoyed working on the Qee, it is not my fave, but definitely nice. It is always good to work on a platform that is meant for DIY. They come apart so nicely and you can put them back together very easily. Why it's not one of my favorites is that it just won't leave much room for your imagination, it is a bear and yeah..... that's that. It is super cute however and I did enjoy the experience.
A WHISPERING WIND
Now this is super exciting as I've never had an actual 2D art piece in a gallery before and I am so proud and excited about it!
For those of you that follow me on IG you have seen quite a few sneak peeks of this one. I worked on it over my holiday in France. And I think that the feeling I had in me through that whole holiday translated pretty well into this picture.
I could've spent the rest of my life on that patio. I haven't felt such peace in my soul for a long time as I did there. But there we are. Life at home have to continue as well, and I am back now, well rested and with allot of energy and new ideas!
The Kaleidoscope of Kyoot show opening night is on Saturday August 13th and runs till the 2nd of September at Clutter Gallery in Beacon, NY. Make sure you head out to see the show if you're in the area. I am super jealous of anyone that can go. I really wish I was closer sometimes! :'(
