Perception, Memory and Landscape
This grant will allow me time to complete and pay for sending my recent series of landscape paintings out to be reviewed for exhibition by galleries and museums. Most of the expenses are for archiving the work both in digital and slide form, framing and “ready packing” for transport. This must be accomplished prior to review or exhibition.
This series consists of 10-15 paintings created with traditional sumi ink and charcoal on Mylar, a non-traditional combination. The combined materials result in images not found with other material combinations demanding the use of “museum glass” for framing. Although glass is a usual framing material, “museum glass” is unusually expensive and highly specialized with properties that allow the viewers’ eye to reach the subtle details of the painting without interruption by glare or distorting colors, ultimately permitting the audience to see the art better.
