Going from experimentation and an idea to installation.
A while back I was playing around with drawing the faces of my wrestlers blindly, (as in, looking at my reference image and not the page.) I did probably 100 of them, small pieces about 4". I liked them, but the scale was all wrong. How to scale up? How to preserve the loose brush strokes? (Opaque Projector). What materials to use (Matt Acrylic opaque) how to cut them out (laser cutter). How to install them on a brick wall (still working on that). How many people does it need to solve these questions? (5). Here's my adventure in pictures:
The next phase of course is to figure out how to install the piece. It's going on a brick wall, ever installed 56 pieces on a brick wall? and how to install it in a couple of hours? Secure but removable - still working on that, in the mean time, I'm creating a large template for installation day.
