cabin art


I have been selected unanimously by the jury with the image above, to be represented at Cabin Art. Cabin Art is an open air art event in Belgium and functions as an extension to Beaufort, a well known and high rated event. Beaufort is a regional cultural tourism project at the Belgian coast which brings, every three years, 30 monumental art works from national and international artists into the public space, into the natural habitat of the coastline.

Cabin Art will run from 24th of May to September at the beach of Sint-Idesbald, Koksijde, where 35 Cabins will be taken over by a wide variety of Artists. 


Woohoo and great, I got selected! But now I have to make a serious enlargement from 20 by 20 centimeters to 122 by 150 centimeters to fit onto the Cabin.

This project started off on the wrong foot. When I went to buy my material, I forgot my wallet. For some reason (stupid me), I sent my boyfriend to go pay and transport the big triplex plate home. I did felt bad karma, and I was specific that when the board couldn't be transported, he could have it cut in 2 pieces. I specifically mentioned the artwork had to be horizontal and if necessary the cut then would be vertical ... sounds completely logical, right ...

So, the board was too big and it had to be cut ... and he asked to do it the wrong way ... but of course ... . If you want the result to be good, DO IT YOURSELF. Since the board is only 5 mm thick, It's not perfectly standing on top of the other, it would have been sooooo much more practically to have 2 pieces next to each other ... now it is on top of each other, hold together with a lot of tape and I'm not certain it will hold.

I really hope this bad starting will turn into a good result, hoping the good karma will join me again! Drama: go away!



And biting through ... setting out the basis and adding the first colours.
