Annie Varnot at the artist residency, I-Park, in East Haddam, CT.
I have a lot of studio ideas, some conflicting, and I feel like I am all over the place. Somehow I wish there were less ideas, but as time continues here I imagine some of the ideas will have legs and the others will not. I recall an old professor of mine saying it’s wise to have two different processes going in the studio that are very different, so that no matter your mood or disposition that day, there will be something that you desire to work on, so this is what I am aiming for in the studio-two different processes – one quiet – meditative – and another process that is more active.
I have some paintings started, and beginnings of a sculpture. I have been trying to use a dremmel tool to carve into these 1000 eggs I have hollowed, but I keep breaking the eggs…wrong bits I think for this task. I am frustrated and feel like giving up that project…for now.
we are currently working with all artists to begin the ‘launch-phase’ of our official gallery website. projects and work of the artists will be managed through a join venture based on studio practice and collaboration with the group of artists being represented. we look forward to seeing this exciting endeavor develop.
we are still reviewing several applications and will post new artists as they are accepted. in august we will also be posting submission procedures open to artists living in brooklyn. it is our aim to form a more local community to help in strengthening our universal ‘web’ community.
