Project Space Mural 2014 (Day Four)

Aloha Friends!

Whew! Today was a challenge! For a minute there I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do a complete scene change. I have family coming into town tonight so my day ended up being a bit shorter than expected. But no worries! A few eyeballs, a few clouds and one volcano later we are done with day four! Cheehoo!

Day Four:

Project Space Mural 2014 (Day Three)

Aloha Friends!

Today is Day Three of my epic mural project (At least it feels epic according to the pain in my feet and back, oi!) Anyway, today's image was supposed to turn into a large reef but ended up being a bit of a two plant dance. At least that's what it looks like to me. At this point I have painted a total of five complete scene changes in three days. I am calling each finished mural image a scene since they are all individual pieces that, together, will form the final time-lapse film. Three days and seventeen hours of painting so far. I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings. Onward!

Day Three:




(Pirate ship!)





p.s. got an idea for an image? Send a suggestion my way! Mahalo!

Project Space Mural 2014 (Day Two)

Aloha Friends!

Today is day two of my Salem Oregon, Project Space Mural! I am very excited to see how things are starting to transition from one image to the next organically. After all is said and done there will be a time lapse video that shows the process. Check back in a few weeks to see the final product! Till then I will keep posting in-process photos and, as always, suggestions are always welcome. My theme has to do with the ocean and more specifically my movement between Oregon and Hawaii. If you think of some imagery or a story I should add, please leave me a comment! Mahalo!

Project Space Mural 2014 (Day One)

Project Space is a dynamic (June to September 2014) contemporary art opportunity. Taking place at Liberty Plaza in downtown Salem, Project Space offers juried exhibits by regional artists, studio space, in addition to performances and other events that encourage community dialogue.

Project Space is designed to bring out the experimental, the creative, the unexpected, the large, the small, the moveable and moving; embracing new avenues of expression.

Artists working in any media, including, but not limited to painting, sculpture, video, interactive media, installation, photography, performance, theater, sound and music, movement and dance are invited to apply to participate in the program. Approaches are fantastical, practical, high-tech, low-tech, humorous and serious. Exhibits rotate several times over the two-to-three month period, starting in June and ending in August. The specific schedule will be organized around the requirements of proposals chosen.

Day One:

Please check back! I will be uploading new photos everyday as the mural changes. The Project Space opening is August 6th so look for the full time lapse video then.

Project Space 2014!

Aloha Friends!

I am very excited to announce that I'll once again be involved with Salem, Oregon's annual Project Space (Hosted by the Salem Art Association). The first time I worked with Project Space was in 2012 and I am happy to be asked back. I have been working on some ideas for a new series of murals that double as time lapse videos. I did some time lapse painting in 2010 with the Honolulu Museum of Art as their artist in residence and am excited to try an even larger scale project in 2014!

Here is the official Project Space Description from the Salem Art Association:

"Project Space is a dynamic (June to August) contemporary art opportunity. Taking place in downtown Salem, Oregon, Project Space offers juried exhibits by regional artists, studio space, in addition to performances and other events that encourage community dialogue.

Here are a few pictures of the space I'll be working in:









I am busy working on the plans for the series of murals I plan to paint there (so check back soon!) But until then here are some videos of my experience as Artist in Residence at the Honolulu Museum of Art in 2010.
