In the past month or so, Willamina T. Mosenfelder and I have started collaborating on some pieces. For our first collaborative piece, we used a 16" x 20" pre-stretched canvas (stapled on back) and acrylic paints, finishing with a high gloss varnish. We each take our turns with the art piece, deciding on our own what to add, what the next step will be. We communicate very little about the piece to each other as to allow our own intuitions guide us on what we would like to do. We went back and forth working on the piece for a few weeks. Then, gave ourselves a deadline. And here we are! This painting is signed by both of us on the back of the work.
"Connected" (2017) can be seen below:
We're very excited about how this piece came out!
This work is available for auction! Please follow [this eBay link] to go to the auction page and make your bid. The starting bid is $150 (not including shipping), and will go on for 10 days.
Here's the important bit: 20% of the final sale price will go to the Natural Resources Defense Council! Here is a description about them from their page:
NRDC works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
We combine the power of more than two million members and online activists with the expertise of some 500 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild.
Please consider making a bid on this work to help support the NRDC, and own an awesome piece of art! Thank you very much!
So, I've been doing huge updates to the game. And, I've been cruising along on the work for the Strategy Guide. For the next three days, it's crash course time: finish the Strategy Guide, paint the gallery walls, install the carpet, set up the desktop computer and table, finish the little things on the game, finish and print/bind the strategy guide... woah! I've got a lot to do. HERE WE GO!
The show "Already Broken: The Personal That is Not Ours" will open July 10th, and the reception is from 6pm to 8pm. The show is at the SVA Gallery in Chelsea, 601 W 26 Street, 15th Floor, New York, NY. The show will be up until August 6th. It's a group show featuring myself and my 13 colleagues in the program: MFA Art Practice (Class of 2015).
I've been working on quite a few changes for the game component of my art piece called "Not to Scale." I'm going to be updating the Current Projects page soon with more information. But, the game is changing, the installation plan is changing, and I'm very excited about it! The little flame dude in my screenshot is my tester character. Anyway, more soon.
