oxbow michigan baby

Three days ago I slid into an amazing locale perched on a lagoon, a mile from Lake Michigan, for a two-week residency at Ox-Bow in MI. My plan is no plan. I'll put pictures of my thought lines and experiments on this blog.

I'm a big fan of list, I think you will be seeing more.

I think this covered chair is great. Maybe more chair-sculptures?

Dark pong.

I was inspired by this an online version of what must be a fantastic show at the Museum of Everything:

Pools of green.

Strangler on ping pong table.

Simple stack.

Dry print on form leaning against wall.

Wet print on form.

Larger view.

On edge.

I went to the fair....

TRADE SECRETS arrived at (e)merge art fair with minutes to spare before the deadline for the Thursday night preview, thanks to our wonderful helpers; Mark and Mike.

The installation changed its composition daily.

Who knew carpet could be so fun.

The arrangement on the last day.

Coutney's handiwork, definitely a work of art by itself.


Pencil and mineral.

Collaborators of TRADE SECRETS; me and Courtney Tramposh.

Last minute straightening.

Oh so many choices, unlimited possibilities.

440 Broadway

The fine folks at 440 Broadway, a Brooklyn studio, played incredible host to Courtney Tramposh and I while we worked on TRADE SECRETS, an art presentation for (e)merge art fair.

The beginning....

Check out the cool mirror trick with The Supernatural piece.

Getting closer...

Check out that great piece in the background by Raphael Taylor. I would love to do a show with him.

I would like to thank Matthew Draving for inspiring me with his couch.

SHIFT + FLOW @ Dorsky

I recently participated in a group show at Dorsky Gallery in Long Island City in NY titled: "Shift and Flow." It was pleasure to work with curator Zelijka Himbele Kozul on a continuation of my "Spirit of the Age" series, which looks at empty buildings and courtyards of late corporate modernist style (ala 1980's).

As usual the piece is difficult to document, because it depends on the viewers movement through the room. The angled images have an eery depth when seen in person. But, here are few different perspectives to give you a sense of it.

The show is up until November 27th with a couple of events forth coming.
