“Labyrinth of Life: View From the Top of the Whitney, NYC” is based on photos I took in 2015 at the Whitney Art Gallery in NYC, but I only completed this large canvas a few weeks ago. The viewer is looking from the top of The Whitney onto the different outdoor decks below. The artist, Mary Heilmann’s colorful “Sunset” chairs installation is on the lower level, but you can also see a part of the High Line Park in the upper left corner. So the vision for my painting is a world full of color – gorgeous, colorful skin tones on the people in my painting, and the bright colorful chairs on the outdoor deck of the Whitney museum.
Labyrinth of Life: View From the Top of the Whitney, NYC, Sally Davies,
I created a short 2 -minute Time-Lapse-Painting film of this painting by photographing my canvas frequently as I painted. It includes a few of my photos that I used for inspiration, my pencil sketches, color studies, design plans, and underpainting….right to the final canvas. (My brother is a jazz musician and composer in Vancouver, Canada, and he let me use one of his albums for the soundtrack for my time-lapse film!)
Chris Fowler’s photograph “The Moore” was accepted into the “Use Other Door” show of the CORE Contemporary Gallery in Las Vegas, NV.
My digital photograph, Manadier Winter Morning, has been juried into the all mediums HERE/NOT HERE Show at Salisbury University. The show theme is around capturing “mages of the forgotten and overlooked spaces on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, calling on artists to capture, explore, and depict those unscrubbed and often unseen places. The venue is both online and physically mounted at the Salisbury University Art Galleries, 1101 Camden Ave, Salisbury, MD.
I am an artist member of Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) in Annapolis, MD. In lieu of an actual artist studio tour this summer, we are doing virtual tours on YouTube. I would like to show you the full MFA Art Studio Tour, showcasing my fellow artists. I’d love you to go to MFA’s YouTube Channel and view the tours, they are wonderful insights into several talented artists in their studio hideaways: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdILqEhyeZctg2yxbA5JrhA
I also have a small test kiln, enameling kiln, precious metal clay kiln (many names, the same thing) with new elements and an external pyrometer. I am selling this for FREE! Just emptying stuff from my studio and would like to donate rather than toss! If interested email: email@example.com
