I entered my work into the Art and Sculpture awards and got into the main exhibition. That is me standing at the door because no photos allowed inside. I entered two new pieces which are from a similar line of investigation regarding the idea of the portal or jumpgate. Instead of doing a claustrophobic work like usual with many images, I used only two images for each of these painting. Trying to create some kind of harmony, but still aiming for nonsensical. Jumpgate 1.1 is on bamboo paper, which turns out does not like masking tape at all. Formations: Jumpgate, has many textures in its white area, many layers of gessoed surfaces, there is something interesting there that I might continue on in future paintings.
