Been a while since my last post but I'm pleased to announce that I will be represented by SVA in this years Miami art fair, Miami Project. There is going to some great work there along with a long list of great galleries so if you are in the area go down and see some great work by some very talented people.
Here is my contribution to this years fair. From my recent body of work Tree, Wires, Hands.
My last semester at SVA is nearing the end and I am now in the process of finishing up last projects and preparing for open studios. My large body of work Trees that look like wires that look like hands will be up in my studio, consisting of 138 drawings, along side with a number of prints and small paintings.
The original presentation of my drawing series could not come to fruition due to space issues, so I got to thinking on how I could make a record of the work as a whole. A stand in for what the work meant to me and how important it was for me to have it all together. I have been thinking about sculpture more and more over the last few months, and with this being my first real attempt at anything of the sort, I am excited to explore the new possibilities that it could produce along side as to how it could further my painting practice.
I've made a large number of works for this new body of work. And finally getting a chance to see it all at once has allowed me make certain decisions that I was unable to make up to this point; in terms of ordering, arrangement and what comes next. I also realized that I am able to edit out a large number of drawings, kind of bringing the overall piece to its essentials.
Here are two of the movements in the piece as they stand right now.
