Happy Spring 2011

I've picked out a few pieces I made over the summer and am building on them. I have to finish some works from that time (well completely rework them now) that will be incorporated into this series later for upcoming shows. This drawing is for a 10" diameter wood panel, some of the negative space will be sanded away (from the paper).
The digital color is really sketchy in this one. About to start the next layer of paint. I'd take progress shots, but my time is scarce.

Back to work. Oh but first, I meant to post this sooner...

My friend of mine Sky Shatz, graduate of SVA, did a silk screen collaboration with one of the butterflies from the Butterfly Tragedy series. A few are already gone from my stock after Bleak March. I'll be selling what I have left at Contrast this Friday and Saturday. I will also have the first edition, run of five, prints from the same series. 7x5", $10. each. If you can not make the show and are interested in purchasing a print, send me an e-mail: clewyta@gmail.com. Free shipping until my shop is set up.

You can also order the tee shirt through the SkyGraphx website.

Eviscerated Unicorn

An interpretation of the struggle between good and evil. It's a piece I've wanted to do for a long time but I hadn't developed the image in my mind until recently. 
This is a section from the drawing for a 54x20" triptych to be painted with oil on paper and wood. I've cut off the unfinished section because of how erotic it looks. It's designed to be a phallic symbol but for some reason when the serpent (hydra) isn't drawn, the silhouette is much more obvious. You'll have to wait to see the figure in her contemplation with the beast.
