Help me, I’m trapped somewhere between the 2nd and 3rd dimension.
I’ve started to make things in what I like to call ‘2.5 D’. Sometimes I take a picture that is already painted, cut it apart and then reconstruct it in various levels.
I’ve attached a quick video that demonstrates the cutting and another for the rebuilding.
Other times I begin with the drawing on board, cut out and around the shapes using a scroll saw. After that I paint the images on the separate parts, and then build the final piece. This is definitely the least scary of the two options. Either way the final effect is pretty much the same.
Anyway, that’s it for today. It may be the shortest blog post ever but it came with pictures so I must get points for that, right? – L/C
LooseCanine is a pseudonym and alter ego. It is an identity that is separate and distinct from its owner – who is dull and full of self-imposed limitations and worst of all, a cat.
LooseCanine is free and fearless.
LooseCanine likes to paint animals and thinks of them as having relatable emotions. It thinks of them as symbols of peace, strength, truth, harmony, and chaos.
LooseCanine paints energy and traces its constant flow and stir. It’s about moving paint over a hard surface, making lines and shapes and piling on layers until the work is finished with its maker. It typically uses a combination of artists’ acrylic and latex house paint on hard surfaces. The overall image quality is somewhere between wood-cut printing and random doodling.
While too many to count, it draws from influences that include native American art, wood-cut printing and engraving, stained glass, mosaic, and on occasion, Dr. Seuss illustrations. LooseCanine thinks like a dog, which is not too much. It would rather play.
Its heroes are Lassie, Toto, Rin-Tin-Tin and Old Yeller. - L/C
