One Huge Display

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

I had a dream last night that all thousand sketches were printed and mounted onto 8″ square photo blocks and displayed around a huge gallery. The display was for sale for $2,000,000 for the whole set. Half to the dealer.

It looked really good, people loved it, thousands of people were looking very intently at the whole project. I like to think of this as one project, not a lot of separate sketches.

A few thumbnails to get the feel, though they were in one single line in the dream:

Nailing it!

Thousand Sketches Slideshow

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Some Thousand Sketches are on Flickr – and here they are in a slide show.

The beat goes on

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Quoting an email I just got.

Hi Walter,

Your artwork was mentioned in Germany’s Beat magazine. They reviewed our first live release and included your circle as the associated artwork.

Signals Under Tests – “Live at verbal Arts” – Beat Magazine Review

“Even though the Irish duo, consisting of Ricky Graham & John King, is actually still working behind the scenes on their first studio album with great attention to detail, this live recording sounds already stunningly mature and in no way like a test. Highly minimal sound grounds, with a high affinity for backward loops, are cut by glamorous jazz-specific guitars and extend up to eleven minutes as in dream time. The enigmatic cover by Walter Logeman congenially complements the music.”

Best,

Ricky

Landscape Project

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

I am working on a landscape project. As with the Earth Crosses the series has it origin here in Thousand Sketches. I am doing new landscapes and I am re-working some of the landscapes from the Thousand Sketches – for example, on my Art Journal “In this moment…” you can see the new version of this one. The plan is to do them in oils as well.

Circles & syncronicity

Monday, December 24th, 2007

I just updated a post I did in October Added an picture I said I’d add of a Frank Stella painting.

So here is another return. Return to earth, hills, New Zealand, lines, incantations, and I am trusting, strength.

Fittingly the last of the incantations is (I return) (with strength) So I thought of the first in the series. here is a return to that. It lacked the strength. I keep going.

Archons are the baddies, viruses, mind parasites, beasts, devils. They are the ancient enemy of the earth. I am not sure what it all means really, but it made me think of the wonderful metal spider in the DIA N.Y. Beacon. Not sure of the artist or name of this sculpture but will add later.

Maurice Bucke was the psychologist who came up with the words cosmic consciousness. Ok, corny now, but it paved the way I think for things to come.

Wikipedia

His connection with an equally bearded Walt Whitman is in the movie Beautiful Dreamers but probably not worth watching!

It is easy to go too flowery and too cosmic for our taste. Keep it simple.

One thing leads to another. One of the hopes I have as the project comes to a close is that I will have a sense of unity. Yet I shun that too, I want to honour all the inner pulls and to go in all directions. But that war is tiring and brutal at times. One strong direction for me that has emerged and that is promising as a unifier is earth. I do hills and plants and crosses that symbolise the sacred of the here-and-now of earth. That focus has emerged, and I am pleased to notice it, make a new category. During the life of the project I have applied a maxim: Enhance what emerges. So to build on the earth theme I looked at blogs and articles on sacred earth and sketched moments that appealed and found titles inspired by the musings.
