My grandma worked a lot on metal leaf (oil on gold and silver leaf)- often large scale screens, like this crane screen which is 6′ tall by 12′ long. I’ve always wanted to try it. Of course the stuff I’m using is the inexpensive composite metal – which is a good thing because it took me a long time and many ruined sheets before I got it to work they way I wanted it to. My squares are still really wonky – after working with this stuff I can appreciate how much work my grandma put into the preparation for the background of her screens. And my piece is only 11″ x 16″.
The Fox, Fluevog & Friends opening party starts in a few hours. As a little preview of the show, here are two time lapses we shot of part of the install:
Installation of what I’m calling the Wall of ‘Vog – shot over two full shoe-hanging days. Thank you to Chris Friesen (MOV Display Technician) and Rachael Ashe (tireless volunteer) for working on this with me.
Title wall vinyl being put up by the installers at Arcprint & Imaging.
Art of Craft has closed, the objects have been packed up and re-crated. Kind of sad to see it go. But… Darren and I have moved on to designing Fox, Fluevog and Friends – The Story Behind the Shoes.
This latest exhibit opens at MOV on May 14th with the opening party on the evening of May 13th at 7pm.
Here are a few photos of the exhibit in progress after the jump:
