After managing to attach each double sided painting to several trees, my first observation was that the works seemed to be swallowed in the vastness of the woods. It seemed that however big one thinks a work is, nature transforms it into a detail.
Now I had only to wait and see if my plans would work. Although the wind sometimes moved the paintings too much for my taste, I managed to secure them by tightening the string.
It was a very successful day, despite the bad weather, and the advantages of exhibiting in the woods were many. Because most of us stayed on-site during the day, we could have direct feedback from the visitors, but I also started to notice that people (children and adults alike) couldn’t help interacting with the paintings by pushing them with their index fingers, making them turn a bit more rapidly.
It taught me a lot about the nature of a painting when it is presented as a 3D installation, and I enjoyed the interaction people got with each piece.
I managed to film some of my paintings in motion, which I have put on the
Video section under the Work tab.
