Kool Aid at Heaven's Gate

19"x 16"x 3/4" Acrylic, spray paint, fabric silk screening ink, etching
What started off as a thick plank of wood, cut to an exacting size, and put under a turntable to dampen resonance serendipitous turned into this guy?!

I've been experimenting more and more with taping parts of my work off to get these incredibly clear/straight lines. I feel like they emphasize certain areas of my strengths, and certainly areas in which I'm trying to improve.. The "perfect symmetry" with beauty and fault!

I also thoroughly carved into this piece and.. quite literally. Etching into some of my work adds this really interesting organic juxtaposition to me.. The etching is starting to take form in other areas of my work but here's a great example of my initial "playing around" ending up resulting in a work that would be quite different without each suggestion left by an engraving pencil..
