3D Mixed Media > 2019 ARV.International Project

During the summer of 2019, I signed on to do an artist residency at ARV.International in Vishovgrad, a village in central Bulgaria. All my previous work with acrylic sheet was designed in Photoshop, plotted in Illustrator, and created entirely on a laser cutter. During the residency, I planned to do what I do, that is, create geometric abstractions based on number sequences, still working with acrylic sheet, but I wanted to find ways to bring my hand into the work and to infuse some sense of place as response to what I saw and felt as I walked the streets and tourist attraction. I brought with me blank sheets of acrylic which I did shape with the laser-cutter here in Chicago. Not having a clue to what systems of math mapping I would use, or how I would visualize the sequences with no access to the machine, I made decisions about shapes and colors based on previous body of work and also general research about Bulgaria and her history. I spent the month of July walking Sofia and Veliko Turnovo. My ARV.I residency arv.international/ was the month of August where I managed to finish the six works presented in Walking VT: Notes in Geometric Responses, a solo exhibition at Gallery Heerz Tooya, Veliko Turnovo heerztooya.com/
