So, how does one approach an idea for a wall installation? Well, I decided to start with cut paper, since that’s what got me this gig. Currently, I’m attempting to portray one of the multiple bee/honey crops out in the Halsey area. Clover, Radish, and Meadow Foam are all crops around the area for honey production. In the above radish design, I’ve actually swapped the original direction. More altering of height in the second stem of flowers will happen and an addition of one or two bees. It amazed me to see it come together in cut paper. Yes, I think this project really will work!
For those wondering, this is the starting point of a public art project through the Arts Center of Corvallis and their Art in Rural Communities project. This year, 2016, is in Halsey Oregon, and my second project for this city. I’m super excited at this opportunity of outdoor public art!
