The art show is getting ever closer for us as we finish up the work for it. I know many of you won’t be able to make it to Ventura so until that date of the 24th of August I thought I’d show a few sneaks. On the 24th all the art will be displayed on the site for all to see.
18 paintings, 5 sculptures, one is a full scale gray. Another a Travis Walton being. A large owl with enlarged black eyes and a few more surprises.
Tonight I’ll post a few frame grabs from my Virtual Reality experience. Eventually I will load the file to this site for those of you that have any VR headset from Vive to Oculus.
I’m also in the process of creating experiences and a short film series made all digital that brings to life these experiences based on my own experience and that of others. Years ago I started a series called “Fantasia Grey” that would be animated imagery from experiences put to music. When my late wife became ill it was put on hold until now. That was over a decade ago and the technology we have now at the studio from motion capture to the latest 3D animation software will make producing such an project more expedient and spontaneous. The old trailer is on this site for you to view.
I welcome all the new subscribers here and so much appreciate your emails and stories.
Most of the pieces are large but these are a series of 8×10’s I’m doing. 6 in total.
Mary putting the varnish coating on one of my latest. If you put your thumb over the eyes you getting the opening image from 2001: a space odyssey. 🙂
This is from inside my office at the studio. The ape is actually an australopithecus better known as “Moonwatcher” from the greatest film ever about the Visitors called : “2001: a space odyssey.” This is a replica I made along with the Starchild. The film had a huge effect on my life and started my career in film effects and film making. Our studio website is here: http://www.steveneillsgarage.com if you want to see the end result of that”effect.”
You can see the Travis Walton being, Communion Bust, and the Men in Black mask used in “But Something is there” . Some of the many things you will see at the studio when you come to the Art Show.
Here’s one of three copies from my molds of the Starchild replica with Adam Savage. Mine will be on display at the show and is a replica I sculpted to size of the original from the movie.
Hope to see some if you there. Whitley and Yvonne will be in attendance.
