Welcome to my blog! First of all, remember to subscribe your email so you can keep up with my progress on the piece I am working on for this years Art Prize!
Art Prize is an art competition in Grand Rapids Michigan. The downtown area hosts over 1,500 art pieces that are displayed within three blocks, you win by popular vote via txt, phone, or internet. during the first week, everyone votes for the pieces they like, the second week you vote on only the top 10 which then determines the placement for prizes. You have to summit your art/medium and description of art along with your bio to the association and pay a fee to enter, then there’s several business’ that choose to host artwork in their establishments, so the business, or “Venue”, will read your profile and Bios and choose whether or not they would like to “host” your art. Once a connection is made with the artist, then the arrangements are made. I submitted and was asked by a few hosts; after viewing websites I chose Tavern on the Square. (located at 100 Ionia Ave. SW Grand Rapids, kiddy corner from the Van Andel Arena) up until I saw their website I was unsure of what I was going to make exactly until I saw that they had Civil War paintings, immediately I thought of “Gone With the Wind”. Still unsure of how I was going to accomplish that, I decided to “wing it” and just do what ever I was thinking at the time, I found a few images of Clark Gable as Rhett Butler and Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara and I went from there. I will have several videos to show the progress made by David Such and his team from Such Video (old town, Lansing)
Here is the link to show you how you can vote!!!! http://www.artprize.org/voting
The type of art I focus on is Multi-media relief sculptures, that actually is carved concrete stone, in many forms. I carve what I am thinking then I embellish is with recycled stones, crystals and glass, until I am happy with it. Each piece has a story and each piece is original to its design. I can do custom pieces i.e. a daughter in her wedding gown, a new baby, women from generations, golfing series, jazz pieces, etc… any subject that I can make out an image, I can carve it.
I will posts other examples of my work in the art tab, if your interested in buying any of these pieces contact me directly, I also am available for commissioned art, which is primarily what I produce. I am currently in the Fifth Avenue Design Gallery on 5th Ave. in Naples Florida, and in Key West at DeRubise fine metal art on Duval Street. Please feel free to leave comments.
