Printing of the Mt. Tam pieces continues. One of the many things I appreciate and enjoy about screenprinting is that it allows me to produce several versions of one work in parallel. This provides incentive for freer experimentation, since it’s not a disaster if any one experiment should yield catastrophic results. This is sort of similar to absurdly low rates of taxation on investment profits providing the appropriately reduced risk that society’s elite need to trickle all that cash down to us schmucks with day jobs. Actually it is exactly like that.
So far I think I kind of like where this experimentation is going, with the image resolving into photorealism at a distance and the bright color splotches revealing themselves to be made up of little dots when you get real close. I like art that has different stuff going on at up close and from a distance. Or if the nothing else, the pine box frame makes it look like legitimate art.
Note that I still have one more black print to add on the far right…or does it look more interesting the way it is?
