Here are some pictures of the installation I did last week at the Emerson Space Case, courtesy of Stephanie Brachmann. It's a window gallery so the piece consists of four separate "frames" of work. Let's start with each frame individually and then some artier details, shall we?
Frame #1 : The Eyes
Frame #2 : The Octopus Den
Frame #3 : School
Frame #4 : The Whale
Detail #1 : The Eel
I may need to get a picture of the eel in the day because the blue light illuminating it belies the detailed color work of the actual sculpture.
Detail #2 : Tentacle
I'll be posting a separate blog soon about the making of the tentacle.
Detail #3 : Serpent Sea Star
Stephanie did an amazing job of painting this sea star for the installation.
Detail #4 : Fish
I actually wanted there to be an overwhelming amount of fish in this frame, but time did not allow. I'm considering doing more and adding them as the month goes on.
Detail #5 : Eel #2
Okay, so this eel is a little less blue saturated.
"From the Street"
There's a tree blocking the first window from the street, so it's impossible to get a full shot of the piece, but here's the closest we can get.
Thanks to everyone who made it to the opening Monday night, and if you didn't the installation will be up until the beginning of June, so stop by and take a look. And a big thanks to Stephanie for her help with everything along the way. If not for her I'd still be there working on it, I'm sure.
Once again, The Emerson Space Case is an installation window gallery on the corner of NE Emerson and NE 30th in Portland, OR. Check out their blog for news and pictures of shows past.
Thanks for stopping by everyone!
