I have had multiple ideas of what my paintings could look like in a 3-D space. This was my first installation of this nature, and it was a challenge to move passed my traditional 2-D approach, while maintaining a discourse that used similar elements.


Part of my work in the “Movement Series”



Initial Sketches For Proposal




Process

  • Painted 15 pairs of shoes with 4 layers of white paint, following by painting the soles with Montana Spray Paint..

  • Created a painting using the same colors that would be opened up to show the moments of inspiration behind the piece in 3 minute video title “Where are you headed”

  • Created Video

  • Installed the shoes with a black string traditionally used in the shoe making process to attach the soles to boots.

  • Installed 3 mirrors on the left side of the room

  • Created shadows with the light.

This art show was the first time an art show focused strictly in installation work in Honduras.



Final Result
