Painting on Canvas

I am currently working on a canvas series with this brain-skeleton-leather-jacket guy as my main character. I really enjoy using brushes and actually mixing paint and applying it onto canvas. It's been a while since i've done any real paintings . I feel a little rusty. Hoping to improve as I work through this series. Hope you enjoy.

Aztec Calendar Scrim Projection . Edward Ruiz 2012

top photo by Victor Rimach jr. I took a trip to Mexico City in 2001 and visited Teotihuacan the ancient aztec pyramid site. One of the treasures I brought home with me was this amazing aztec calendar . photo by Belinda Barbosa, bottom photo by Yasmina Johnston I love projection and couldn't pass on the opportunity to celebrate the end of the aztec and mayan calendar by honoring it with modern technology and new media projection. The calendar was like a scim material and the projection was viewable from both sides . It also cast a shadow of itself on the wall adding yet another viewable layer . Overall I was pleased with the piece . I hope to present it a few more times before 2012 ends. Thanks to Chasquis and the Canton co -op for the opportunity to show. The event got some mention in Central Track click on the link to see more.

The Ruby Revue and Edward Ruiz

A nice little set piece I designed for the Ruby Revue Burlesque Show. With this set you can get a variety of different looks and effects by creatively using video and lighting.
A par can for silouettes , LED fixtures for coloring the screen and video to project graffics and moving images that compliment each act. Oh and Confetti at the end !
This set is perfect for the stage in the Cambridge Room at the House of Blues Dallas in which The Ruby Revue performs monthly.
