Busy Week - Show This Friday at Scout

I''m facing a very full week. My show at Scout opens on Friday and Las Manos opens its' last show in the current space the same day. I'm in pretty good shape for both given I work diligently all week and no unexpected dramas occur. I have previewed many of the pieces that will be in the Scout show, just take a look at the last few postings. I of course want to take part in the Las Manos show too, given my history with the gallery. So in keeping with the concept and materials of the Scout show I'm working on a large flag like piece for Las Manos. It has completely taken over my living room and until it is finished I won't get it back. The piece should be finished in the next 24 hours, if everything goes according to schedule and I don't run out of 'Mad Men' reruns. Below is a photo of the piece in progress. Hope to see some of you this coming weekend. Materials are; India Ink on recycled cardboard, mounted on Arches Watercolor Paper. Size approximately 45 x 90 inches.

Save The Date - October 5, 2012

I will be showing forty or so 'Constructed Drawings', both framed and unframed. Their will be some new 'Lake' watercolors, but I'm working in a smaller size this summer. And I have a few 'Swimmer' drawings too. Exact time yet to be determined but most likely 6pm until 10pm.

October Show At Scout

For my upcoming show at Scout on October 5th I have made a series of 'Constructed Drawings', which by the time I done will number forty or more. Lately, when I begin an idea, I work through it in a series, staying within a format and using like materials. This series began with recycled cereal boxes and an idea I had regarding some fabric I had seen at the Art Institute. The latest constructions, working from the same format and materials, have become much more structured - even architectural - as you can see in the image posted. My aesthetic has always overlapped with Larry's from 'Scout', and the notion of creating a series specifically for him and his amazing shop makes sense. I'm very excited to be able to present these at Scout beginning Friday night, October 5, 2012, which will be the kick-off for Andersonville Arts Weekend.
Overall dimensions 18x 24 inches. India ink on recycled cardboard mounted on Bristol paper.

Constructed Drawings

In preparation for my upcoming show at Scout, scheduled for October 5, 2012, in tandem with Andersonville Arts Weekend, I have been making what I have come to call 'Constructed Drawings'. Stemming from my collage work, and making use of recycled materials, I've created a series of these pieces, which now number about twenty five. Be sure to save the date.
Each piece is 18 x 24 inches. Materials include: India Ink on recycled cardboard mounted on Bristol Paper.

Second in the 'Swimmers Series'

What could I call these drawings? 'The Swimmers Series' sound like a reasonable title at this time. Until I can fully pinpoint what these are about it will have to do. Here is the second in the series.
Pigmented black pen on school paper. I'm playing with the margins and the placement of the image on the paper. I hope to make three at this size and then it might be time for a large one.
