I've been using the big table. Wider than most, it can also expand lengthwise. When Ned was a boy, his father used to get him to crawl underneath this table to see the craftsman's mark.
The two pieces in this post are for the exhibition in October. Most of the pieces for the show are connected by their process. First, they were wrecked and then they were mended. Putting them together is filling nearly all my time during these raw months.
I like doing them at home.
Gaston Bachelard said that the chief benefit of the house is that it shelters daydreaming.
To be human we have thoughts and we have experiences.
Mostly, though, what makes us human are our daydreams
and daydreams are very different from dreams.
Space is more important than time for the unconscious.
One of the reasons I like to work in a large scale is that it gives my viewers the space to daydream.
