Reception Answers ... & Some New Art!

Museum Questions? Here's some cool  ***ANSWERS***  Andrew Farago put together... that should address answer almost all of any questions/concerns about the Saturday's Reception/Signing.



Okay, With all this Museum details distracting everyone... I bet some of you who aren't going would love to get back to some ART on this friggin' blog for a change, eh?



I've got several pieces going at once, but this one came together after several weeks of Creative Lull..



This one started out quite the mess... no visual focus... so I tried to stop all the abstract textures at the bottom... and leave some black space up top.



That's what brought me to colored pencils.. some of which really pop against black bristol.



My goal here is to balance out the mixed media chaos at the bottom of the canvas...


..with some firework of energy, curves and explosion of little lines.. be it white, teal, orange. whatever.



It's hard to know what to throw up sometimes, my biggest job is to edit, because like us all a lot an artists draws really can miss the mark. This piece included.  A lot is subjective in why someone hates/loves/indifferent to an abstract.

But the biggest goal is to break paralysis. Any line, art or mistake is at least a choice, an action. Beats the hell out of inaction. Molasses.  Failure fears. Ruts we all get sidelines into.



So.. this should propel me into he signing, then i'll see what else I can throw up after Saturday.

If your there, i'll see you then.

If not, then just kick back, enjoy the Museum Book and Interview in it..

..and we'll catch up sometime in-person, at least once before i croak, promise!
- Sam

Just what i needed to hear. I just 20 minutes ago gave myself the old "fuck art" speech... but you changed my mind, who cares if alot of it is garbage, just keep at it, it will come... thanks. Awesome piece by the way. It's very "Sci-Fi"

I love it! And the style on the signature. Makes me want to find some black bristol...

Hello Mr Kieth, I noticed some things of yours I missed from the comments in your last post. I did not know about the two Hollows incentives. If you have an extra of each, I would like to buy them from you at the signing (or make a contribution to the museum for them).

Thanks either way,
Mightyduke

MightyDuke I looked into trying to get the incentives too. I couldnt order them anywhere since they where out in DEc if you find any way to get one let me know.

Such a fascinating piece.
I could look at that for hours and still come back again and again.

Love the lines and the colors good call on the black paper really makes it pop.

I'm sure you have done this

but have you ever put down a pile of paint then take a straw and blow the pain in different directions...you know what I mean?>

anyway so great to see that blue colored pencil attaching the painting... so cool!

There is so much grace in your forms it's unbelievable. Can you make this available as a print?


Really looking forward to the book. Been waiting 10 years for it. What you do is wonderful, please stay around for a very very long time. The fact that you never "shop" for attention / clicks / likes is a great statement and inspiration as well.
