‘10’ – Art Byte Critique 10th Anniversary Exhibition in Yokohama

Art Byte Critique has been vital to my growth as an artist. What started out as a small group of artists, founded by Arthur Huang, in the Tokyo Bay area has grown into an international group that continues to support each other’s creative efforts. Our latest efforts will be exhibited at Launch Pad Gallery starting Friday, Nov 18:

Dark and Moody Midnight Wave Wire Crochet Wall Art

The longer I hang out with my art work in the studio space, the more ideas I have to make changes, updates, and improvements to each piece. As the sun moves around the studio, streaming through the windows throughout the day, my work catches and reflects different light. I work to see how far I can push each piece, how many iterations from a single work can be created. Midnight Wave is a perfect example of my process.

aatchiartMidnight Wave – Long deep turquoise fibers of wool, cotton, and silk extend beyond the panel framing flowing like the water it represents.

Previous Iteration

Midnight Wave was originally an unframed wire work piece first shown at my solo show, INTERVAL, as a piece attached directly the wall at Launch Pad Gallery. It looked nice but I always felt it wasn’t a complete piece.

Choosing to add the abstract wire crochet art work to a solid panel piece allows the shadows to be a part of the same unit instead of relying on a specific solid wall color to see these shadows. Making both the artwork and its shadows into a single work of art.

So what do you think? Does the shiny black anodize copper work on the matte black painted panel? How do you like the deep turquoise wool, cotton, and silk fiber against its dark and moody background? It’s an F8 panel sized 39cm high x 46.5cm x 2cm (15 3/8″ high x 18 1/4″ x 1 1/8″.)

It’s available at my shop at SaatchiArt, price includes shipping.
