Constellation Charts

Friday, June 27th, 2014

I made two Constellation Charts for a friend of mine.  They’re all the constellations that can be seen in the night sky, in Canada, in June and October.

Star ChartsI used the Sumi-e ink on the 6×8″ pieces of Etchu Hagaki for the background.  Using a Metallic Silver Sharpie I drew the oval and the Roman Numerals.  The holes were created using an awl as well as the Martha Stewart Screw Punch for the larger ones.  I then connected the dots with a pencil.

I liked the subtle look of the pencil on the black ink.  You get a different experience close-up and far away.  I used floating frames to really let the light shine through the holes.

Fresh Folds

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

A few years ago, inspired by some simple origami my partner Jeff had been playing around with, my dear friend and photographer Evonne asked him to collaborate on a series of photos. Evonne headed to The Paper Place, collected origami papers that suited the feeling she wanted to capture, and picked up the book ” Folding Techniques for Designers” by Paul Jackson.

Hundreds of pieces of paper and crisp precise folds later ( I watched this all happen from my couch) an array of beautiful geometric models were born.

Evonne shot the pieces close up, in a studio with bright natural lighting. The photos have been made into large scale prints, the images so wonderful, it’s hard to tell if it’s a painting, a photo, or that its even an image of paper. These pieces have been shown at the Trinity Bellwoods Art Crawl and were feature at the 2013 Artists Project.
