Started a new piece yesterday – Monolith. The idea came to me one day last week, while I was mowing my beard.
The concept was born from necessity – I need a beacon at the front of the gallery as a guiding light to all art lovers. The column will stand 183cm tall, 61cm wide and 50cm deep (72 x 24 x 19½ inches in old money).
Construction of the frame was finished yesterday, today I was stretching and gluing the canvas over the boards. After a couple of applications of gesso the support is now ready for paint.
