The Art of Progressions
“Elegant Vampire has sold. I am working on the new Progression now.
Look for it this Sunday.”
Today I begin to show a weekly series of artworks called Progressions. These are pieces of art which I will continually work on and show the progression of until someone stops the process by purchasing it. In essence the art keeps evolving until a patron steps in. Essentially I am giving this person the power to become a part of the creative process.
These pieces of art have a six day viewing window and then they will be worked over again. The change may be as subtle as adding refinement and rendering, other times the transformation may be radical, so much so that the piece underneath is obliterated. The variations are almost infinite as I continue to build and destroy the surface with paint, collage, etc. but it is possible the art may be destroyed altogether. Only you can save it from that fate.
All pieces of art will start at $100.00 and raise in price $100.00 after every progression. Email me directly, greg(at)spalenka.com if you want to purchase (free shipping in the US). Progression 2, Elegant Vampire (above) is the first in this series and starting at $100.00.
The image above shows the image as the first progression.

I am a devotee of process.
The only absolute in this reality is that everything changes. I bring much of this attitude to my art making. Picasso said, “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” I believe this is true in many respects. He also said, “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.” I guess it all washes out in the end.
Check in every week to see the revolving and evolving transformations.
