Push Pull Print began as an idea that I had to challenge artists. I wanted to get inside their heads and see how their thinking process differs from those of like minded creative individuals…
This is how Push Pull Print began. It has grown beyond my expectations from a single art show to artists and communities wanting a little more. I am pleased and fortunate to have had worked with all artists and individuals involved. That being said the show is about pushing yourself, pushing beyond comfort zones and self imposed creative limitations. Linda Guenste (3 time participating artist) asked what I would be doing for PPP III? Flashes of movies played in my mind of working tirelessly with 20 artists over the past 5 months. Making sure prints were up to our expectations, art was converted to formats we could use, burning screen after screen after screen. Visiting artists, consulting artists, laying out the plans for the pieces, nailing down venues, trying to have the house clean before my wife gets home….the movies fade and there is Linda with the inquisitive look in her eyes….(well?)
I don’t think I have anything left.
Well, I am going to “push” you.
(I’ll probably fall over and break if she does that) – OK I’ll do something….
My concept is this. A screenprinted piece that is as visually perplexing as it is interesting. A piece that conveys interest, but is also perplexing. I needed it to be thought provoking. I needed it to not be immediately apparent. I “turned” to my emotions.
That’s enough foreshadowing. Visit me on SATURDAY!!!!
