Running Dogs

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

I created over one hundred dog shaped paintings on wooden panels. Each panel is hand painted with acrylic in a loose painterly style. Each painting averages about 30" wide by 18" high. They "float" off the wall about an inch. It takes about twenty dogs to fill an area of ten by ten feet. I would like to fill a large wall or multiple walls with at least one hundred of the dogs. If given the space I would like to create even more dogs. Note, the dog house pieces and any other paintings visible in the photos are not part of my proposed installation. This would basically be a huge pack of dogs running across all the walls in my venue.

Venue & Connection Information

These are individual paintings that are wired for hanging. The pieces will be displayed in a tessellated manner in which twenty dogs fill approximately one hundred square feet of wall space. In an unguarded venue I can secure the paintings by tethering them to the wall. I will fill and touch up all nail holes after the exhibit.

  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: Yes
