Photographs of dancers taken with long exposure
These are some photos I took of Dennis Ahearn’s work. He works with photocopies as a sort of matrix so he can use the images multiple times. SUPER cool, I’m so glad he was able to come, and that I was able to listen to him talk about his stuff.
That first one is MY PLATE (a really old one, I made that last fall. But it is still my favorite etching. I know I’ve posted prints of it on here before) inked up in Printeresting Black. the rest are my friend Kyle (who makes prints of turtles) printing his plate.
This is Jolynn’s plate, printed up all nice in the Printeresting
blueBlack ink. And Dennis wiping a plate of hers that was printed later. And a random picture of my friend Robert who is a fool.
This (the guy in the black) is my professor Jason Scuilla (who happens to be my favorite artist and a huge inspiration, I couldn’t be luckier to have him as my mentor) inking up a large plate he did in undergrad with the “printeresting black” ink (which we all came to discover was PRETTY MUCH blue). The guy in the brown is a professor at UCF and Jason’s old college roommate, Dennis Ahearn. I’d never heard of him before, but now that I’ve seen his work, I am glad I met him. He’s incredible, I’ll post some of his stuff in a bit. The last few photos are the pulled print—its pretty crazy. I’m madly in love with all of his work, you should check him out on google if you’re interested in art. He does these awesome etchings of feet—its great.
Before actual printmaking photos happen I just want to mention that Jolynn (our new grad student this semester. She’s probably the coolest person ever) brought this remote control, inflated robot in. For reasons unknown. But it was just wandering around for awhile. She also has this sheep that just kind of hangs around with her all the time. I think his name is Wilson.
I’m going to be posting a bunch of pictures from my shop in a bit guys! These are some funny ones.
Last night, I attended the member viewing of the Caravaggio exhibit at LACMA. He’s, by far, one of my favorite artists. Unfortunately, the exhibit didn’t include enough paintings of his to satisfy me but it was still great to be able to stare at his work, including the piece shown above, St. Francis in Ecstasy.
