transforming

unglamorous now, but soon to be transformed

this spring/summer I’ll be working on another Art in Public Places project in Fort Collins. For several years, various artists have been painting on the cabinets that house high power electric transformers around the city. It’s actually meant to cut down on graffiti activity, preventing a lot of expense in priming and repainting.
They prime the boxes any color we want, and then we go to town. It’s a real change of pace for me- working outside, with acrylics, on a cube! So, it makes me think in flatter, more decorative terms, and this year, I’m thinking cupcakes and gift wrapped packages- it’s a birthday party!   Or maybe something more truly abstract and non-objective….?  Haven’t decided yet.

Will post pics when it’s finished.

I've been a painter for about 30 years. I also draw and make monotypes, linocuts and other prints. I like tangled stuff.
