The Pollock Paint Can Shelf: Part 2
I had this idea to create a piece inspired by Pollock's paint cans. I came across a great photo of Pollock's studio showing two shelves loaded with paint cans. I set out to recreate the idea.
Well, nothing I did looked right. The long shelf was too long. The paint cans wouldn't balance (both artistically speaking and literally!). Finally I decided to cut the whole thing up.
I reassembled the shelf into something that looks nothing like Pollock's shelf but looks very much like ian sands :)
Then, Alex and I took some time arranging and rearranging the paint cans till it looked and felt right. This peice is still in the works but I'm a lot happier with the way it is coming along.
Since the original piece was six feet long and full of cans, there were a few left over. I think I will create another paint can shelf with the leftovers.
This is a shot of the shelf before I cut it up. There were a lot more paint cans that are missing from this pic but you can get the idea.
