Time To Play





it feels really good to not have anything major lined up for the next couple of months. i've had such little time recently between shows to really spend any time hitting my black book and exploring new ideas (a sort of 'post-show' tradition that i've really come to cherish). with the few opportunities i have had though, i've really been trying to figure out how to combine my two very different ways of wanting to work -- a.) my loose, expressive painting and b.) my tighter and more precise drawing. for so long i've been happy keeping them separate but i think i'm ready to change that. before the recent sweet meat show and even during stories by streetlight, i really starting taking to more geometric forms and lines -- looking at old blue prints and bauhaus posters from the early 20th century. i sort of touched on this in the work for welcome to sweetsville, however, the above is a much deeper version of what i've been wanting to do. so yeah, i'm really looking forward to the next few months of pure creative exploration and discovery. stay tuned to see where this goes....

peace!

Welcome to Sweetsville!







first off, i wanna thank everyone who came out to Welcome to Sweetsville last week and showed their support. it was truly an amazing night! i also wanna thank ALL our volunteers and sponsors without whom this event would have not been possible. and of course to my fellow SweetMeat-ers, thank you for once again being scary good and truly inspirational. i'm so grateful to be a part of such a talented and dedicated group of awesomeness!

so here are a few installation shots of the madness that was Sweetsville. the installation, which was assembled at the center of the room, rather than on the walls, posed several challenges (especially for 5, traditionally 2D artists) but in the end really came together in a fun and interesting way. i'm beyond stoked with the outcome. here are a few links to more online photo albums:

there is also a sweet review in this week's rochester City Newspaper that you can check out here.

peace!!
