Quote of the Month – May 2021

I think I missed a month (it was a busy April) so I decided this month has to be an extra good one. This is one of my favorites. With so much Churchill to quote, this one really speaks to me. And I am especially feeling it now.

Let’s Go Cleveland!

I have so many things to say but I’ll try to keep it simple, short and sweet. Years ago I was confronted by a roomful of Bengals fans who were not happy about me being the only Browns fan present. My friend, another Bengals fan, asked me pointedly, “But I don’t get it! You’re from Columbus! You could root for Cincinnati or Cleveland…. Why do you like the Browns??!! “Because I have a choice,” was all I said. It did not go down well.

resin piece revisited

This is a resin sculpture containing an X-ray of my neck that I built roughly 9 years ago. It was part of my thesis show as an MFA candidate at CCAD. After graduation, it appeared in a group show I was part of at the Riffe Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Since then it has been wrapped up and inside a box in storage.

After digging this and a couple of other sculptures out this week, I noticed that they appear to have deepened in color over time. When I first built them they had a slight yellowish hue even though they are transparent. But now they appear yellower, more of an amber color. The above photos were taken using a light box, which is how I have typically displayed sculptures like this. The below photos were taken outside in the sun.

The change in color of the aged resin becomes more apparent in the direct sunlight, as seen above. In some areas (such as the upper left of the above and the reflections on the side of the sculpture) it appears almost orange.

Here’s a detail shot of the side of the resin. Some of its layers are visible here.
