Roller Derby | Lafayette Brawlin’ Dolls | West Lafayette, IN

Working with the Dolls has been a goal of the studio for over a year now. I personally have been a fan of the Brawln’ Dolls since I saw them for the first time last October. Unfortunately, most of their bouts are on Saturdays during wedding season, so getting a project going has been difficult. This year we were finally able to meet with a few members of the team and work out an arrangement for us to work together.

Being a fan, my goal was to capture the excitement I experience while attending a bout. To accomplish this I knew I wanted to use a dramatic lighting style. I set up two gridded strobes, one on each end of opposite corners of the track. This allowed me freedom of movement while still providing the intended dramatic highlights...

Troy Clark | Gallery Walk | Downtown Lafayette, Indiana

One of the joys of being located in downtown Lafayette is being a part of the wonderful events that happen. Gallery Walk is put on three times every summer by Tippecanoe Art Federation, and downtown businesses stay open late, serve refreshments, and most importantly display artwork. For the first Gallery Walk of the year we are proud to display works by Troy Clark.

“Troy’s process involves a wide variety of techniques. As it was Dali’s intent, Troy often tries to eliminate any evidence of the brush stroke softening the acrylic with aerosol, airbrush, rag and sponge. In his effort to tell a story his work is often compartmentalized. Xerox transfers, stencils, the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated images all lead to a work which, when visually peeled back, exposes its many layers...

Hymn to Achievement

On Monday April 20, 2010 Ivy Tech Community College dedicated “Hymn to Achievement” – a twenty four foot wide mural – to it’s art collection in Ivy Hall in Lafayette, IN.

Created by Aldo Giorgini nearly forty years ago, it’s quite interesting how relevant the subject matter is today, but also how well the piece holds up as art – managing to avoid a dated look. It’s no coincidence, as Aldo was well ahead of his time, being among the very first in the world to pioneer the use of computer programming to create artistic imagery. More on Aldo Giorgini can be found here.

Aldo’s son Mass Giorgini approached me several weeks ago to photograph the mural in order to create a reproduction of the piece for use during the unveiling event as well as posterity...

The New Chair!

Since moving into the studio last October, I’ve been doing my editing in a chair that looks cool, but has been slowly (actually, not so slowly) destroying my back. I finally got around to replacing it with something that still looks cool but will hopefully spare me a good deal of discomfort. The following is something I made simply because I am a big dork.
