I am developing a large Relief Painting Installation ( RPI ) that reflects the changing, dynamic landscape of New York City. I will be building a large scale relief of painted floating panels that reflects the environment that only New York can radiate. The shapes and sizes will vary but look very much like the colored floating panels you see between the buildings in the above photo and will resemble my most current work which can be viewed at www.behogan.org. I will also be including drawings and images in my updates.
My painting as a relief represents the changing view and shifting of the landscape we move through. It’s about the experience of viewing painting as the environment it replaces. The world we exist in is in flux, creating an evolving landscape that shapes all aspects of our surroundings. The idea is to show how nothing is as motionless as it appears and that there are a variety of ways to see the beauty around us. In the end I aim to pass an environmental experience back to the viewer as they interact with my relief.
THE PROJECT DETAILS:
I will produce 250-350 individual panels for the relief to be composed of. There will be panels touching, overlapping in clusters, as well free-floating solitary panels. They will create one large (20 x 10 x 2 ft.) painting that uses spacial relationships between the panels to tie together the composition.
Panels will be built of wood and extruded polystyrene (EPS) and be expertly coated with a variety of enamel paints, primers and industrial top coats to add to the visual interest.
W 20’ x H 10’ x D 2’
$7,000 pledge goal = the time and materials to build and install such a large piece of art. This goal is a low estimate but would be a great help to further this idea. To build it = to share it.
IF PROJECT PLEDGES EXCEED THE FUNDING GOAL I WILL EXPAND ON THE PAINTING BY ADDING 1 FOOT TO THE WIDTH FOR EVERY $1000 PLEDGED OVER THE ORIGINAL GOAL! (phase one is limited to a thirty foot width at this time, more funding does equal the option to get more space and expand)
-Also with extra funding I will be able to then invest in marketing, assistance, research and development.
-And of course the more money I raise the better the party I can throw at the end of this phase of the project.
