Sean Goddard’s Insects
Busy day yesterday, a morning photoshoot on location for an upcoming video.
And back in the studio for an afternoon tangling with Sean’s creative insects. Salt Spring artists are constantly extending their ideas, and Sean is no exception. In the bonus photo below you can see an additional detail of the side of one insect. That tiny stainless handle is the crank for a hidden music box…
Circuit Board Horses
I enjoyed working with a group of wild horses this week.
This is a five foot wide commissioned piece by local artist Peter McFarlane. It needed to be shown as it might appear displayed on a wall. The piece includes a wooden cleat to help it lie flat and away from the wall. An interesting shadow is created when properly lit. This implies motion I think, and adds visual interest.
Like all of Peter’s pieces, this one is built from reused/recycled material. The circuit boards are lit so that the colour are true and the solder is alive but not shining.
I look forward to more photographic challenges like this—in the home-based studio space. During the long, dark, temperate rainforest winter. :-)
A Bit of Colour
A bit of colour from the multi-talented visual artist Peter Schnitzler. Peter divides his time between Salt Spring Island and California.
This is a particular section of just one of many of his pieces I admired (and photographed as part of my day job).
Look for a selection of Peter’s stunning painting styles coming soon to an exhibition near you.
Michela Sorrentino at The Pod
Michela Sorrentino opened a new show last night at the Pod Contemporary gallery in Ganges. Michela’s work is both fun and detailed. Below is a portion of this piece—a bit closer to what you would see if you were standing in front of the painting:
