IMG_0063Went on a quick shoot yesterday with Jacob to an abandoned factory, decided just to take a 105mm macro to shoot. I’ve been contemplating going pretty much all primes and this was a great test run.

Awkward focal length with a fixed 2.8 aperture macro… it forces you to really contemplate composition and movement of you, not the lens. Now I just need disposable income….

And come on down to the FSU MOFA on August 31st to see great art and strange people http://www.facebook.com/events/144726459000697/

Just got back from dropping off my work at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts for their International Juried Show. Barely beat the rain heading into the building, looks like it will be a fantastic exhibition.

They dropped a fat stack of catalogs into my hands and its brilliant to be a “sales person at Best Buy” sandwiched between professional artists and professors.

For some reason I have the jurors doing a spit take when I submitted my personal information; he’s a what at where? In Tallahassee? Bullocks. Maintains a studio? Its the spare bedroom. Damn kid, committing hubris. Um. Anyway, probably just the results of a self deprecating imagination. But the art is going to be an amazing mixture of media and talents from around the country and around the world.¬†

 

Dionysian ClockworkThis one ended up more abstract than I initially intended, may have been the soundtrack switching from Bon Iver to Dizzee Rascal to Zu to Liz Phair to Wu Lyf… my playlist is suffering from schizophrenia. ¬†This is getting closer to playing off of Bacon’s exploration of expressions, rage, the meat of the human form. Might have to find some volunteers to scream and contort for me. Please? Um. I know that sounded off but no sharp objects, I swear.

 

Being as this collage is probably two/three days away from completion and I love how disconcerting I was able to make this blend I thought I would upload a preview crop of “Much Better Than A Death.”

Baby Rat Old Man Death Crop...

I’ll be uploading the finished collage early next week, probably reposting the first part; “Do You Call This A Life?” Will also upload a recently finished exercise in abstraction and oddities. Might not post properly because its behind moderate safety on flickr due to implied nudity.
