I met the gallery curator a couple of weeks ago for a show in June. I am fascinated by the space. The gallery carried rare signed glicee and original books of Yuriy Norshteyn. I was pleasantly surprised. His work inspired me into pursuing stop motion.
The curator expressed a love for animation and sculpture and gave me the permission to potentially do full installations as well as paintings.
I'm thinking of combining maquettes/stop motion puppets with animation background paintings. I am still thinking of a theme. So far I'm leaning towards the idea of "exploration/ discovery."
I have 5 months.
