Varnot — @ Weir Farm Art Center December 2010

i am too cold to write in my black book diary and so it is easier to write on my laptop because it provides warmth from the bottom of the computer and in so writing on my computer I feel compelled to share with you my “diary.” It is 5:15 pm and it is very cold and dark and I do not want to be outside. December. That being said, I like it here at Weir Farm. There is an absolute contrast in temperature, color, and light between being here in August verse being here in December.

Varnot — updates

Varnot attending A.I.R. at Weir Farm, December 2010.

I have returned to Weir Farm for the month of December. I am focusing on work I relate to winter.  I have started five subtle tree watercolors with minimal narrative elements relating to the site. In addition I am sinking chicken eggs I had previously drained into baggies of hydrocal. Once finished, the accumulation of the eggs peaking out of plaster bags will become a larger modular floor or wall installation. I am also working on some tree cut outs and may or may not continue with some drinking straw work…we’ll see!
Happy Holidays!
