I completed my installation of Creatures of Curiosity at the SOFA Chicago Art Fair in November. I had a twelve foot wall to work with-plenty of room to mount the lettering, the artist statement and the nine pieces.
With all the planning and thought that went into the presentation and all that room, the work attracted a lot of attention during the four day fair. Many people remembered my work from the year before. But I was most amazed that they were able to see the progression in it. (These new pieces are more complex, elaborate and some of the creatures have become more fanciful.)
Five pieces sold and I got one commission, which I am working on right now. My solo show at the Jane Sauer Gallery will start in mid February. I want to have at least fifteen creatures for that show. I’d better get busy!
