Jane chasing redsun

Linen is stretched and stapled on the canvas for both top and bottom. For the top part of canvas, I thought it would be interesting to include bird, which does not appear with Jane anymore... Jane, waves of water, redsun (red fish), trees are all drawn with Indian ink and pen, watercolor and pencil crayon. All cut and stitched on the bottom canvas first. Then wooden frames are all nailed together. All pieces of drawings are attached with fish string and additional materials are added... (e.g., shadow of redsun in blue silhouette paper, acrylic paint splash on acetate paper to enclose each sides. A lighting is to be added later on, but the bottom part of waves of water will include some white decorative gravel to hide stitching and to create even out ground.) It takes a while to finish one thing... but it is interesting to experience how I have to really think around to transform the main material source of cardboard boxes to wooden canvas frames. Plus it does create quiet different feeling to it...

work place

I know it has been long since I uploaded images on the blog... So here I have my no longer secret work place. I have picked up few (or lots) of canvases that were suppose to be thrown out at work. Decided to use it as park of my "Jane" project. Instead of using cardboard boxes, canvases' wooden frames are used as a box. It took me lots of planning... or at least some time, because it was definitely different than working with cardboard boxes. Where for cardboard boxes, I was able to cut and work my ways from here and there, for wooden frames, I had to make steps because once the wooden frames were nailed together, there was no way of separating them back again.
