Well, my art show "Seeking Dialogue" has ended, so I thought I'd reflect a little on how it went.
I was worried that because my art is quite small, and the gallery space was quite large, I would be unable to fill the space. I found a solution in the ideas of my professor Michel Daigneault: he suggested I paint behind the paintings on the wall in a different colour. I'd suggest this technique for anyone in a similar situation, as it really works to fill and soften the space.
The opening reception went well, with friends, relatives, and strangers mingling and asking me about my art. Throughout the week, the gallery had a steady stream of visitors, so I got lots of exposure. My comments book was bursting with positive energy by the end of the week.
Now that the show is over, I've made some decisions:
-go back to working on "To Destiny" and my collaborative comic on Theban myth
-drop the "Scenes of Tokyo" ink drawing series; I'm running out of source photos and it feels like a dead end
-continue painting in oil
-save grad school for a few years in the future
one questions remains: What the heck am I going to do after I graduate??
Also, just a reminder that you can buy my comics, "To Destiny" and "Oline and Oleander," for only $5.00 Canadian each! Just send me a note if you'd like one.
Very talented and unique artists who you should totally check out:
