My second born was home from Emily Carr in Vancouver over the holidays. He showed me an artist he is interested in, Dave Kinsey, and we contemplated his process. In my books, the next step is to reproduce the work to learn by doing.
Although, we used primitive tools from my studio (fancy word for spare bedroom) as well as completely forgetting to add any collage (which Kinsey uses here and there), I think we came up with a fair semblance. Our source images, scavenged from the internet are a barking dog and a shot of Walter Gropius.
