My husband Bruce and I were watching the show CBS Sunday Morning (January 9), as we often do and suddenly, totally surprised, there it was, my “Eye Sun” flashing on the screen for just a couple of seconds after a segment about TikTok. The segment was about the rise of comedians on TikTok including the comedian star Adam Waheed with over 15 million TikTok followers and comedians Harry Leibow, Sarah Barnitt and Sam Ramsdell.
Another one of my suns appeared on the show 3 times in the past. Jessica Frank, the CBS “Sun Queen” had emailed me the day before on Saturday that another sun I had submitted was going to air but I didn’t look my emails on Saturday, hence it was a surprise. We’re glad we didn’t know in advance as it’s surprise lifted our spirits. Something we needed.
See these earlier posts about my other sun that aired multiple times on CBS Sunday Morning.
“Isosceles Follies I” is composed solely of these two isosceles triangles.
From Euclid’s Elements – Book I – definition XX:
Of trilateral figures, an equilateral triangle is that which has its three sides equal, an isosceles triangle that which has two of its sides alone equal, and a scalene triangle that which has its three sides unequal.
Printing on rigid substrates opens up a new avenue of exploration in my work by allowing my geometric constructs to expand beyond the confines of square and rectangular formats with use of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Router that can cut the substrate panel to my specifications.
Hexalarious II is printed on a composite aluminum panel. All the white areas will be cut out by the router. The cutting accuracy is precise which is necessary because of the precision of the geometry. Stand-offs will be put behind to hang and float off the wall.
I want to thank Kim and Scott and the rest of the team at Vista Color Imaging. They have been great to work with, taking extra care to ensure a great final print.
Fabrication of this artwork is made possible with an ADAP grant from the Ohio Arts Council.
The following is from my grant application, titled “The Shape of Things to Come”:
With this grant, I will create 4 artworks, printed on rigid substrates as opposed to media of the traditional digital print (paper/canvas). Printing on rigid substrates opens up a new avenue of exploration in my work by allowing my geometric constructs to expand beyond the confines of square and rectangular formats with use of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Router that can cut the substrate panel to my specifications.
ADAP (Artists With Disabilities Access Program) provides funding that gives individual artists with disabilities—and organizations that serve them—the resources they need to further their artistic development. ADAP awards help artists with disabilities advance their artistic practices, making Ohio a more accessible and inclusive place to build an artistic career.
