Componenticulars + Primes:
Studies and Proofs
What: Studio Joseph Shaeffer edition release/show
Where: 2304 Pine Street, Boulder
When: Saturday, April 25th
For the past 3 plus years I've been working on a large body of new work for an upcoming solo exhibition. Typically, the way I approach an exhibition is to work towards one or two large installations that serve as the foundation for the conceptual/visual language that I'm attempting to convey in any particular body of work. The process in formulating an installation, for me, involves a lot of research, trial and experimentation. This, in turn, leads to the development of studies. Many, but not all of these studies, are scaled up and become viable works themselves and can now create a dialogue that runs through the entire body of work while also serving as an ancillary mechanism in support of the practice as a whole.
Well, it's great to have a plan and carry out a process, but unfortunately, life sometimes has a different agenda and forces us to be flexible. I've learned to be pretty flexible. Before I can proceed with the larger works for my exhibition I have to take care of some medical expenses stemming from an unfortunate incident a few months back. With this in mind, I have decided to release some of these studies and proofs as short-run editions in an attempt to get back to even so I can move forward with my initial plan. I will be posting these editions here for the next couple of weeks, so check back daily for new images. If you are in/around Boulder on Saturday, April 25th, stop by and see the work in person whilst enjoying a beverage from our friends at Upslope Brewing.
I am only promoting this work here on Ello, so help spread the word!!
