I have roughly 500 canvas paintings. A couple thousand works on paper. And under a thousand digital works.
I’d like to photograph everything and then destroy all my finished artworks. So the only copies are photos of the original works . This blog is like a archive of my work. And when I do shows in the future for new art, just print out the selected photos in editions and display those. Only selling photos of original works. All originals will be made, then photographed, then destroyed.
This relieves a headache of watching the art pile up and take up space, worrying about preservation in archival storage which is expensive for me. And it’s clean to free up space and clutter free and all works are online. Don’t have to worry about the art decomposing and being lost.
