So it has been quite a while since I last posted here. The whole summer, to be honest. Life kinda got in the way. All very good things (for the most part) but tough on productivity!
Here’s the long and short of it. We bought a house (yeah!) then started renovating it – which took a lot longer than expected (months). Then we had to pack, move, paint and unpack. All while I got an additional position at school, working in the admin office. It was a hectic summer, to say the least.
But now I’m kinda back. At least on a semi-regular basis. And I’m back with all kinds of updates.
One, I’ve got work in a group show down in Jersey (woo hoo!). I wasn’t able to get down there to see it, but my mom went, and she said the whole show looked amazing, and I got a few shots from her and her friends 🙂 It’s titled “langour | temperance / repose.” The show info is HERE and HERE. And here is a sample of one of the images that I have in the show. You may recognize it from previous posts…..
Also, cool news, I’ve started work on the new batch of big, mamba-jamba murals for my solo show here in Boston at the Garner Center at NESOP. Can’t wait! Did test strips on Monday, and things are looking good! Maybe I’ll post a teaser once I get the first couple developed 🙂
And the third bit of cool news is that I was accepted to an artist residency!!!! This is kinda amazing for me, as I’ve never done one of these things. It just sounds awesome. Sure, I’d love to go some place foreign (ie, Prague!?!?) for a month and just make art! Twist my arm, seriously! So, to help me along with all this, as airfare is insane and it is a month of room and board, I decided to launch a Kickstarter project. I’d been hearing a ton about these, and I’ve had a few other artist friends launch projects in the past, but this is another first for me. So if you know anyone with a couple of extra bucks eating a hole in their pocket, send them my way, and they can help support arts and crazy ladies who want to go to Prague! Oh, and here’s the link to the project site in case you want to check it out:
If nothing else, you should go check the page out, as I made a video, and it must be goofy and foolish, as I can’t seem to imagine me being able to film myself any other way. You’ll get a laugh.
Anywho, that’s all for now. I’ve still been working on the natural disaster series, expanding it a bit, so there may be new images on that front soon. Hopefully, I’ll be better about updates from now on…..
Signing off for now.
