Art. What do ya do with the stuff?
Life drawing. 2001.
Duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes. Charcoal and conte crayon on brown craft paper.
Size: 103cm X 76 cm. Approximately.
Sad fact: Was not able to fit hand in on top, despite the monster size. Damn!
Feelings about it: I think it turned out well despite the hand issue. I've always liked it. I enjoyed knocking it out in a whirlwind frenzy.
Exhibition history: Hung in Waverley Art Prize.
Where it currently resides: Under bed collecting dust bunnies. Damn!
So people. What does one do with art like this?? I can't really afford to frame it right now. No portfolio is large enough to hold it. I'm not with a gallery so I have no clients. I'd love for it to be up but don't really have the house/wall for it. I'd love for someone to love it as much as me.
What are your thoughts and opinions on the matter. If you are a maker of things, what do you do with your work once it is finished. Do you give things away to make room for new? Sell them? Do you have a big house capable of proper storage?
Curious in Canberra. All responses welcome!
