Open Source Philadelphia

November 8, 2015

Open Source has been a Summer-long event involving fourteen artists looking to give something away akin to the philosophy of open source computer code, which is written then shared for free. This involved varied social programs, direct collaborations, and experiments across the city. I saw Open Source as the perfect moment to turn over my Practical Geometry research to young artists. This became a two week workshop, culminating with a full color demonstration of Practical Geometry as it may Relate to Wall Painting.

Curated by Pedro Alonzo and hosted by Philadelphia Mural Arts. I would like to personally dedicate this painting to a man named Bill Bill. Thanks to everyone that helped: Dominique, Always, Jbecause, Jamee, Caitlin, and Sean the closer.  And organizers: Monica, Lisa, & Chill Phil, teachers Brad and Marcus. 1831 Frankford Ave. Fishtown, Philadelphia.

Curated by Pedro Alonzo.  At 250 x 34 ft, the mural spans the length of one city block in Downtown Boston.  All thanks to the team Sean, Hannah, & Monica.  This will be open to the public for at least six months, at the ground floor entrance to the tallest building in New England – so it’s easy to find ; )  https://goo.gl/maps/mFm0K .

MOMO at M Carter

February 6, 2015

Sculptures, drawings, watercolors, a leaning wall, a video, and zine of 50 beds I’ve slept in.

This was a massive show in a special place.  M Carter Shop in Brooklyn is where I lived while in NY, 2004-2010, with art and fashion genius Milton Carter.  By the way, the price list pdf he created for this show is beautiful. Get in touch with him to see what’s left  hi@mcartershop.com 141 Engert Ave, Greenpoint Brooklyn, NY.  Open Thurs – Sun 11 – 7pm. Besides the artwork, we collaborated on hats, t-shirts, and a pouch.

The 24 Sculptures all have one twist of wood joinery which make them 3d.  I see these as maquettes for larger works, sketches in space. Made mostly with marine grade plywood in Key West Florida (another amazing story: million thanks to Cayman and Cas & Andy for a 5 week residency down there, making these possible).

So much to say about this show.  It was AMAZING to see so many people, old friends, new ones, all great ones, in one place.  Thanks for coming out. And thanks to Milton, Matt, Ted, Sophia, Jack and Hannah for working on this!

An exhibition in Niort, France with Winterlong Galery

A mural, an installation, 5 canvases, 21 watercolor drawings, a zine, and new videos.  The city of Niort provided a castle on a tiny island in a river, for residence, while this was installed.  The whole experience was pretty amazing.

Theses are watercolor “drawings”.

The zine is a beauty (about tissues) produced by Juste Ici.
