Paperback bound book of Rives lightweight + black walnut ink drawings I did with a quill…little bit odd I know, but I’m obsessed with the rhythms///the way the ink runs out and that variation of tone
"Nostalgia (from nostos - return home, and alga - longing) is a longing for a home that no longer exists or has never existed. Nostalgia is a sentiment of loss and displacement, but it is also a romance with one’s own fantasy. Nostalgic love can only survive in a long-distance relationship. A cinematic image of nostalgia is a double exposure, or superimposition of two images - of home and abroad, past and present, dream and everyday life."
Svetlana Boym, The Future of Nostalgia
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.
