Coincidently, while picking up his work today he mentioned his ongoing battle involving the deer who somehow continue to find their way past his defences to happily forage in his garden… sounds like Salt Spring Island.
It’s big. Very big. And very heavy. And I can’t think of a better reuse of mower blades.
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…
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. :-)
