To be continued… (Mixed Media Art Project)
For mixed media artist Andrew Haag, a project is never truly complete. Even in its perceived final form, a piece of art always has the potential to evolve. True to his mixed media art style, Haag enjoys fusing fresh concepts into his pieces… no matter how long it’s been since the paint has dried! In his latest project, called ‘To be continued…’, the multi media artist is taking that approach to a whole new level.
‘To be continued’ is a mixed media art project led and launched by Andrew Haag — and completed by the world around him. The project follows a concept of creating something in collaboration with other people, but not necessarily artists. In some cases, the contributing participants may not even realize that they’ve put their spin on the piece!
Andrew Haag’s process for ‘To be continued’ involves laying out an initial idea. This could be a cohesive idea that ties into another stand-alone piece or project developed by Haag. Most recently, the mixed media artist hosted a virtual gallery in California which showcased digital photography collages. In each piece, Haag infused some sort of theme into the creation of the collage. However, none of the pieces were named, which left the focus entirely up to interpretation.
At the end of the showcase, Andrew Haag asked viewers to submit their responses to a questionnaire. All questions were related to the themes of each piece. Now, Haag is calling on those responses to launch the second stage of ‘To be continued…’; this involves reworking each collage by transforming the focuses to meet what his gallery viewers envisioned. In that way, the works are not only collaborative, but true to Haag’s style of a piece never being complete.
