I’m not an art critic.
Look at the way the details, every hair, every architectural minutiae was cut.
What I love about this artist his painting of urban scenes, locations where you might often find graffitti, or stencil art.
Sort of like a painting of a canvas.
¿I mean, how incredible is this
¡THIS IS DONE WITH AN EXACTO KNIFE AND SPRAY PAINT, For G-d’ssake!
To the artist:
Ray, I saw you video. As fascinating as the process is, the stencil you crumpled to discard created such a striking sculpture that I found myself coveting it.
I think after Hurricane Sandy, we may all be more sensitive to those crumbled images, all that careful knife work that has been discarded.
I would love to see that crumpled paper alongside the image, or framing the image, or somehow incorporated into the image.
It made me hungry for the scraps.
Also Ray, I used your images, and linked to them. I’m assuming that’s OK. Hope you don’t mind.
Thank you for making the blogosphere your museum.
Please let me see more of your scraps.
