The last two suites of images were what I presented today...and I got photos! I can only imagine the printed piece when it has over 4,000 prints. There are only about 400 finished now and I was still impressed. I had never seen them all at once, rolled out, so it was a proud moment. I was also pleased with how the four large plates turned out...very worn and dilapidated, and the inks dimmed the brightness of the materials I used....the color was dimmed or covered, just like domestic violence does to people. The metaphor was sound, and it was 'read' by everyone at crit. Very cool.
After crit I hung the second portion of my thesis at Jubilee Arts (the large scale plates pictured below) along with the shelter residents' art which revolved around the idea of "safe spaces". I think it looks good, but it's so difficult to take photos of art through glass. I'm not satisfied, so I'll have to try again tomorrow, when I drop off the statements and put the finishing touches on it for Friday's opening. But these photos (below) are a good representation of my work. I will update the flickr sites soon enough and post a link to the exhibition images. Until then, final crit images!
