Latest and greatest of the book I’m working on. Silkscreen, relief rolls of foreign coins, flat color monoprints as of now.
So this is what I have so far, silkscreen and monotype and prepped covers for a sketchbook/artists book/I’m not sure what kind of book its going to be. My registration isn’t fantastic, and this is a really early prototype/trial run, but I’m super excited that I’m using color again, and finding uses for old screens and plates and things.
My setup for a critique with Sigmund Abeles, who visited New Paltz today as a guest lecturer/artist
Finally have access to a scanner again!!!
Here are some highlights from that sketchbook I attempted to bind, coptic-style, on my mother’s kitchen table back in June. Enjoy!
uhmmmmmmmm I need to go see this
It’s not often that a museum gets to directly respond to front-page, bolded-headline media coverage with an exhibition that both nourishes the public’s curiosity about the reported phenomenon and expands the perception of it as well. Deliberately or otherwise, Neue Galerie couldn’t have timed it better. The Manhattan-based museum of German and Austrian art is currently hosting Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937, the first US exhibition dedicated to the topic of “degenerate art” since a 1991 show at LACMA.
Went to Mass Moca yesterday, with some fellow interns from Dieu Donne. Had an amazing time seeing Ann Hamilton’s vision come together in her collaboration with bang on a can, and got to also check out some sweet works on paper by Darren Waterston. massmoca, you’re killing it!
This is what my summer has been like in a nutshell. Hot and sweaty printing litho in Brooklyn, and getting real intimate with pulpy paper pulp in midtown.
Went to Bushwick open studios today; apparently Brooklyn is the place to be these days.
First attempt at Coptic binding, unassisted (except for YouTube) and I only got a little bit of blood on one of the pages! Success!
