Why it’s Important to Play
larvae, 2010, charcoal and acrylic on canvas, 40cm x 40cm
I was feeling very organic last weekend so decided to go out and buy some untreated canvas and play around a little. I also remembered that I had two or three potatoes once destined for a hearty mash, just sitting around in the fridge. Who knew that this would be their destination. I made three of these ‘pictures’.
Scroll down for the video, sit back and enjoy, preferably with a bag of no-name potato chips.
Cross the bridge for more pictures, taken by my dear friend Cooper. Thank you, Cooper!
the potatoes look great this way. i wish i could keep them but they must go
i did this one on saturday, it was my first and larger than the second and third. this one is 50cm x 50cm and is hanging in my hallway
the picture inspired me to neaten up my bookshelves. i need more books!
i washed the fabric because i wanted it to be creased. it was fun to see the effect of the potato stamps on wrinkled cotton
carving a potato is scary but fun. and not as easy as i thought
try this at home and let me know how it goes!
