TRANSCRIPT:

This is a Solo show

Come see my show!  The art work is great!

Thank you

 ===============

Ahh, this one, I started…

a friend of mine has a book with animal pictures in this book

this picture I had to paint because because it inspired me 

 I noticed a picture of a cute cat

Neat to transfer into a painting

I painted this part with name sludge that means it’s a heavy paint  

[mystery fingerspelled word!]  

then after that I covered it with more paint, coloured paint. 

================== 

 Elizabeth is my art mentor 

Something a lot

my cat drinks from the toilet  sometimes 

My cat is real  That’s my cat my cat is funny  

I got out of the bathtub and my cat drinking from the toilet  

I took a picture and then transferred that into this painting 

 =================

This one, my friend leanor vlug and I were chatting online one night  

her cat came down, lay down in front of the fireplace to warm up  

then later during the conversation leany said her cat looked like it became a lazy melting cat  

I thought hat was funny a cat  I decided to transfer that into a painting

Casting call ~ your assistance is greatly appreciated ~

My name is Ricky Dagan-Skedd. I am working with a gentleman named Ian Skedd who is an artist making a piece for an exhibition at the Western Front Gallery in Vancouver.

Ian is very interested in sign language as a visual representation of sound. In his last piece, he worked with a sign singer (a woman from a Montreal deaf choir who has just moved to Vancouver.) Together they video-taped a french sign language interpretation of the song “Au Claire De La Lune.” This piece is currently being exhibited at the Charles H. Scott Gallery on Granville Island at Emily Carr.

In his new piece, Ian would like to film a whole choir and we are looking for people who might be interested in participating. We have 10 people so far and need 21. The film is scheduled to shoot February 14 – 17 at the Chan Center’s Recital Hall at UBC. Sign singers will get an honorarium of $100 per day of the shoot and they will be well-fed!

We are a little behind in casting for this piece. We are hoping to have all the singers by Nov. 15 or 16. So, if you wouldn’t mind passing along the message to anyone who might be interested and ask them to get back to us as soon as possible. As well, if you could suggest other organizations, places or people that might be good places to get spread the word, I would greatly appreciate having their contact info.

Below is the synopsis of the piece currently on exhibition at the Charles Scott Gallery and the synopsis of the piece to come for which we are currently casting, should anyone want more information.

Thanks so much for your time.

Cheers,
