Here is a triptych that I recently completed. As you may know from reading previous posts, I am working with a lot of flight path "translations."
...the work is quite fresh in my head, so articulation has been in spurts.
But here you are, with process provided for those who are interested.

C-O-L-O-R Study Landscape in "HTML"
C-Champagne, France, of which they share the same name. O- Old Gold - El Oro, Mexico(the word "oro" is the word "gold" in Spanish). L- Liver - Leipzig, Germany, where liver and onions is a traditional food. O- Onyx - a semi-precious stone that has been used for centuries in Egypt for jewelry and other artisan crafts. For this reason, an Oasis in Egypt called Dakhla was selected. And finally, R- Rust - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil- home to the largest mines of Iron, a metal that is prone to rust.
C-O-L-O-R Study of Constellations Above Color Locations
This final piece of the triptych involves researching the view of the night sky constellations from each location facing east at Midnight on January 1, 2010.
I ran into my friends/associates/peers Daniel Brodo and Kristi Engle at an opening at Haus Gallery on Sunday. Daniel does some insane thinking about his work... I use the word insane in a nice way.
While I was describing this process to him, although he has not seen the work, he mentioned that the idea was like 3 layers -- making a gesture like one would make while pressing biscuit dough or maybe trying to gently shmoosh a sweater into a drawer that is too full. "Ah ha!" I exclaimed, "It's a triptych, but you just gave me another idea." ...So, Thanks Daniel!
Approximately 4,788 holes were poked in these pieces to make the "legends"....now who's insane?
