ARTIST'S DESCRIPTION
COMING SOON-
CATEGORIES OF WORK:
THIS LISTING IS CATEGORY 4.
(SEE CATEGORIES OF WORK BELOW)
DIMENSIONS OF WORK:
size
is 6" x 6" and 1.5" deep
NOTE: SINCE THE LAST TIME MY HUSBAND PHOTOGRAPHED THIS PIECE-
I'VE FURTHER EMBELLISHED THE SIDES WITH BLACK GLASS BEADS AND 2 TINY MINI
BEATLES ALBUMS ON EACH SIDE.
the piece is painted on a gallery wrap canvas,
is properly wired up on the back
* and ready to hang.
* CATEGORIES OF WORK:
THIS PIECE IS CATEGORY 4.
1. PRIMARY ORIGINALS THESE ARE THE MOST TIME-CONSUMING AND GENERALLY THE LARGEST IN SCALE OF MY WORKS.
THEY ARE OWNED BY HUNDREDS OF PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS AND MANY MUSEUMS WORLDWIDE.
ONE PRIMARY ORIGINAL WORK OF ART CAN TAKE ME WEEKS, MONTHS OR EVEN YEARS TO CREATE.
FOR DECADES I CREATED AN AVERAGE OF FIVE TO TWENTY PIECES OF THIS LARGE, TIME-CONSUMING TYPE WORK PER YEAR.
NOW I AM CREATING EVEN LESS.
2. VERSIONS OF WORK THESE ARE GENERALLY THE SECOND MOST TIME-CONSUMING AND EXPENSIVE OF MY WORKS.
THEY ARE ENTIRELY HAND-PAINTED VERSIONS OF CERTAIN OF MY PRIMARY ORIGINAL PAINTINGS.
THE DEMAND FOR THEM AROSE WHEN PATRONS ADMIRED MY PREVIOUSLY SOLD PRIMARY ORIGINAL PIECES AND WANTED
SOMETHING SIMILAR BUT NOT NECESSARILY AS EXPENSIVE. THEY ARE SIMILAR TO BUT IN NO WAY IDENTICAL TO THE PRIMARY ORIGINALS AFTER
WHICH THEY TAKE THEIR INSPIRATION. THEY ARE ALSO NOT MERELY A RE-PAINTING OF MY PRIMARY ORIGINALS BECAUSE EACH ONE CONTAINS
NEW ARTISTIC- DISCOVERIES. FOR INSTANCE, I AM OFTEN INSPIRED TO REWORK THE FIGURES SETTINGS AND COLORS- IN WAYS WHICH NEVER OCCURRED
IN THE PRIMARY ORIGINALS. THEY BECOME AN EXTENSION- A CONTINUATION OF THE PRIMARY ORIGINALS FROM WHICH THEY ARE INSPIRED.
I TYPICALLY SPENT TWO TO FIVE WEEKS ON EACH PIECE. THEY SOMETIMES (BUT DID NOT ALWAYS) HAVE UNIQUE FRAMES
WHICH I EMBELLISHED WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND MATTES AND VINTAGE OBJECTS DE' ART AND UNUSUAL TITLES. THEY WERE FRAMED IN MANY WAYS, SIMPLY
ORNATELY, OR WERE PAINTED ON GALLERY WRAP CANVAS OR ON FURNITURE (WHICH REQUIRED NO FRAME). ALL THESE PIECES ARE ETHICALLY TECHNICALLY
LEGALLY (AND IN EVERY WAY) ORIGINAL PAINTINGS. I GERNERALLY CREATED AROUND FIVE TO TEN OF THIS CATEGORY OF WORK PER YEAR BUT AM NOT DOING
SO NOW, INFACT I AM PHASING THIS CATEGORY OF WORK OUT ENTIRELY.
3. REPLICA ORIGINALS THESE PIECES ARE SIMILAR TO MY VERSIONS OF WORK CATEGORY, (SEE 2. ABOVE)
WITH SOME IMPORTANT EXCEPTIONS. THEY WERE TYPICALLY THE THIRD MOST EXPENSIVE TYPE OF WORK, I CREATED MANY MORE OF THEM
THAN OF CATEGORY 2, AND THEY WERE AS CLOSE TO BEING IDENTICAL TO THE PRIMARY ORIGINALS AS POSSIBLE (THUS, HAD NO NEW CREATIVE
DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN THEM WITH THE IMPORTANT EXCEPTION OF THE FRAMES WHICH WRE OFTEN VERY UNUSUAL OR ELABORATE). THEY ARE ENTIRELY
HAND-PAINTED (GENERALLY SMALLER THAN THE PRIMARY ORIGINALS) REPLICAS OF SOME OF MY FAVORITE PRIMARY ORIGINALS.
THEY ARE LEGALLY AND ETHICALLY ALSO ORIGINAL PAINTINGS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT. THESE PIECES GENERALLY REQUIRED DAYS OR SOMETIMES
WEEKS TO COMPLETE. FURTHER NOTES ABOUT THE FRAMES: THEY OFTEN HAD VERY UNUSUAL FRAMES WHICH I EMBELLISHED WITH ONE-OF-A-KIND
MATTES AND VINTAGE OBJECTS DE' ART AND UNUSUAL TITLES. THEY MAY BE PAINTED ON WOOD, CANVAS, OR OTHER MATERIALS.
I GENERALLY CREATED BETWEEN TWENTY TO ONE HUNDRED OF THESE PER YEAR, BUT I AM NO LONGER DOING SO, INFACT I AM PHASING THEM OUT.
4. SMALL GALLERY WRAP CANVAS REPLICA ORIGINALS
THIS IS A NEW CATEGORY- CREATED IN 2021. I ORIGINALLY CREATED LESS THAN 50 OF THESE- AND HAVE LESS THAN 30 REMAINING-
AND DO NOT INTEND TO CREATE ANY MORE.
5. ONE-OF-A-KIND WORK ON HEAVY PVC WITH LIMITED HAND PAINTING. (THE HAND PAINTING; ALTHOUGH LIMITED MAKES EACH PIECE
AN ORIGINAL TECHNICALLY AND LEGALLY).
6. 8.5" X 11" SIGNED PRINTS. KATA'S PRINTS ARE SIGNED BY HER AFTER BEING PRINTED ON VERY HEAVY CARD STOCK PAPER
WITH A GLOSS FINISH USING THE MOST EXPENSIVE STATE OF THE ART EQUIPMENT. THESE PRINTS MAY EASILY BE DISPLAYED USING THE
FOLLOWING OPTIONS... PROFESSIONAL CUSTOM FRAMING IS ONE OPTION. THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO OTHER EASY DIY OPTIONS.
TO DO YOUR OWN INEXPENSIVE FRAMING JOB SIMPLY SLIDE THE PRINT INTO A READY MADE ACRYLIC FRAME OR PURCHASE A READY-MADE
FRAME WHICH HAS GLASS AND HANGING APPARATUS. LOOK FOR A FRAME MARKED EITHER 8X10 OR 11X14 (THAT IS THE PRINT SIZE NOT THE OVERALL
HEIGHT AND WIDTH OF THE FRAME). IF PURCHASING AN 8X10 FRAME ONE CAN EASILY TRIM OFF A BIT ON THE BOTTOM TOP AND SIDES OF THE PRINT.
ONCE YOU'VE GOTTEN THIS FAR, YOU WILL PROBABLY FIGURE THE REST OUT (OR LOOK FOR A YOUTUBE). THE LAST SUGGESTION IS TO HAVE YOUR PRINT
LAMINATED, THEN PLACE A SELF-STICK HANGING APPARATUS ON THE BACK.
