An experiment gone awry.
I love a bit of decay incorporated into things, which is why I love old buildings, Michael Eastman’s photos, and the furniture I inherited (although a small fund to keep the chairs glued and un-wobbly would have been a good thing to inherit along with). I’ve been working on a way to include that in some of my pieces, but how best to partially destroy my work?
Here is a piece I’ve been wreaking minor destruction on, pre-destruction:
It definitely needs some decay, so I go to work on it, trying to balance giving it some integrity while still leaving it vulnerable:
Then I become Kali, speeding up the destructive force of time, and the result is:
Far too much decay!
Tomorrow, back to the easel, so to speak. I will repair it to wreak (less) havoc on it another day.
At least it won’t need this treatment:
Done to erase the result of another experiment. One not to be repeated.
