In order to plan the composition for my paintings I often start with a collage. When arranged next to one another several pieces of colored paper offer endless possibilities of tension, rhythm, structure, and mood. I often look at these collages and wish that I could turn them into a functional, everyday object, one that could hang like a painting but offer a service to its owner. So I thought of myself and what object was really lacking in my home. What tool could improve my daily habits? What I found missing was an aesthetic means to store an object that is used daily, always a source of clutter, and a source of stress when it goes missing, my keys. I come home and I set my keys and sunglasses on the table where they will remain until I leave agin. Why must they live on the kitchen counter? I am proposing the creation a hanger for keys and sunglasses.
I would fabricate a roughly 15" x 12" steel structure that would hang on the wall like a shaped painting. It would have two small knobs for two sets of keys and two small ledges for two pairs of sunglasses. The structure would be made of six thin powder coated steels pieces in a variety of colors soldered together into one solid form. I have included a collage to illustrate the concept of what the finished piece would look like. This is just an example of numerous possibilities. In order not to detract from the composition the knobs and ledges would be made for of the same colors as the steel and blend in seamlessly. I have also included images of my paintings to illustrate my color inspiration and experience with layout and design.
I would create patterns for each of the six pieces, ledges and knobs. Then I would have the steel cut and powder coated in specific colors. The pieces would then be mounted onto a wall mount so the key hanger could be easily hung.
