Catching up

By Jes • Uncategorized • 23 Mar 2010

Today I feel like I'm catching up! At least just a bit…

We put our condo on the market yesterday. It was a big relief to finally be done with all of the cleaning and organizing! Now, back to artwork this week.

Applications are due. Shows are coming up fast. An updated list of where you can find me this summer and fall will be posted very soon!

In the mean time, some work in progress that I some how managed to start despite the craziness.

No title yet. Compilation of 3 images. One black and white medium format photo taken using Ilford film and my Hasselblad 501c/m. One Polaroid using my Sx-70 camera and expired 600 Polaroid film. One color medium format photo taken using Fuji slide film and my Hasselblad 501c/m. All 3 images were taken in Hawai'i. 

Working title: Sunsets and Walks on the Beach. Compilation of 3 color medium format film images, all taken with my Hasselblad 501c/m in Hawai'i.

Working title: Mountains in the Background. This  compilation consists of two color medium format film images taken with my Hasselblad 501c/m and one Polaroid image taken with my Sx-70 using expired ATZ film. The line that splits the tree branches, making the top 1/2 lighter and the bottom 1/2 darker, is the skyline of the top of Diamond Head. 

I will be tweaking these a bit more, but they are mostly finished. 

I am realizing that it is time for me to stop with the 'creating new work' part of the process, and start with the 'finishing' part. That is always a scary transition to make. I have created a lot of new work, and it is easy to get into the rut of just creating, and starting, and not finishing. Now is the time for me to start actually creating prints, typesetting, and framing. 

You won't be seeing many new compilations on this blog for awhile, but I will keep posting other photographs I have taken, fun little bits, and maybe some pictures of the new prints!

Until next time,
