Wednesday March 9, 2022 – Photo shooting, writing a statement II
Today at work I thought about my artwork statements again. I’m very concerned about this topic because I’m not 100% sure in which direction I should go.
I don’t want to describe my objects in such detail. I want the viewer to have enough leeway for his interpretation. If I prescribe too much now or push the whole thing in a very specific direction, then perhaps a connection to the object could not develop at all. On the other hand, it is of course interesting to be able to tell a story about an object. I’ll just see how I proceed.
After lunch I took the new gallery pedestal and my current sculpture to my storage room. It is roughly 3 miles from here. And there I took photos of the sculpture. Thank goodness it’s going really fast now. Before, I had to do it all here in my little studio. It was quite a crowd. Now that I have the storage room, I have a corner where I have enough space to take pictures. I can just leave the lights and everything around there.
Then I went home to post-process the photos. For the post-processing of a sculpture, i.e. the pictures, I need two to three hours.
When I photograph my work, it is always very exciting. Because then I always discover interesting perspectives and little things that I hadn’t even noticed before.
Well, and in between I continued to work on Lori a bit. I applied a layer of Pattex again at a connection point. And then I painted the whole thing black again to get an idea of the rough appearance.
