These blocks are consuming me a bit this week.  They are 10" cubes - so not huge but not teeny.  They just make you want to pick them up and arrange/stack them.  I have stacks and stacks of ink and paint treatments on paper and this is a good outlet for those.
Meanwhile I'm still working on some bigger, more sculptural applications.

More 3-D exploration

I am continuing to push out in different ways with the 3D applications.  This week it was some boxes and using the sides to explore different surface treatments.  If all goes well, there might be a stack of them for the residency.
I am still making the big cut-out shapes too - It is two different pursuits, the forms and the surfaces and now they are coming together.  Much to evaluate before packing it up.  I have found some terrific new artists to research and some great old ones. I am immersing in Dubuffet again and finding all sorts of new avenues into his work.  As for surface treatment , there is the work of Terry Winters - amazing.

Different textures/images

Continuing the exploration - some text printed on colored paper, using strips and a side trip with some old vintage photos from books that I enlarged 200%.  I just finished a paper on Eva Hesse, which has inspired me to obsess and explore all sorts of surfaces.  The 3-D shapes are ongoing.
