pam's big adventure


yet to be titled digital image    pfarrell 2009


I've been meaning to see Roxy Paine's Maelstrom, installed on the Metropolitan Museum of Art roof sculpture garden. But as with many things in my life, these days, I am relying instead on the 'net (and Joanne Mattera and her blog) to provide a vicarious experience. Thanks Joanne! 

Perhaps somewhat inspired by Maelstrom, the image above is the latest in a series of digital pieces I began early last spring and posted on my photo art blog. I've been alternating between trees and water, water and trees.I've been preparing several images from this series to have printed in a large format, and I'm heading to Philly's Silicon Gallery this week to avail myself of their 60" printers and digital printing expertise. Also along for this adventure will be my friend Randy Carone, who provides me invaluable technical advice and assistance. He also plays a mean slide guitar. 

While I have a fair amount of printmaking experience from back in the day, this is my first foray into large format digital printing. Very exciting. I'm trying to suspend my expectations and just go with whatever happens. As my friend photographer John Carlano counseled, these larger images will be "different pictures." So, I'm off with that in mind...

Roxy's Paine's Maelstrom...yet another work of art I long to experience in person. I hope you're able to see it.
Your work is so intriguing; I appreciate the sensitivity and mystery in your work- the digital images especially. I look forward to seeing the results of your "big adventure" on your blog!

Thanks All, for your comments. Looks like the big adventure will reach its denouement a little later than expected. I planned to see and pick up the prints tomorrow, Saturday 11/21, but looks like Silicon had a few problems with their printers. So...I will be waiting until next week to pick them up.

Lisa, I can't promise you there will be teguila, but I do promise to watch Peewee's Big adventure.

ABC, who ever you are, I appreciate the extended ellipsis.............
