Some catching up to do


I can't believe how long it has been since i last posted. I guess a lot of things have been taking priority over the blog. If my blog is part of my art practice then that means that my practice has been suffering as well. Just to catch people up on what I have been doing I will give a brief overview of what I have been up to since my last post.

From August to September 10, Carol and I had a show at Rush Arts in Chelsea that was called "in Progress" The idea behind the show was to constantly be adding to the show until the final closing. We also did a performances every two weeks for the duration of the show with each performance building on the first and final one that was vastly different from the original.

The wall drawing images were based on the performances while the sculpture in the back room originated from some images I had been using in my drawings. I will go into each of these later and will provide pictures as well.

The photo I posted with this blog is one from a show in Brooklyn and Curated by Coren Denise Cooper. It contained drawings that both Carol and I worked on together with our one year old son Dante. I will be posting more about that show and the idea for those drawings in later posts. Trust me, I have a lot of catching up to do, so you can expect pictures and writings to follow.
