Art that I love by people that are awesome: I

My friend Jed made this. Check his blog for the process photos... I told him that if I weren't a spoken for lady I would marry this piece.

My friend Laura made this. Check her website for more egg photos. I would also marry this piece...does that make me an art two timer? Hmmmm...

A bunch down...a few more to go...

So I feel like I am maybe at the halfway point of crazy with all the shows I've had/have...I have 3 immediately upcoming ones to get ready for before I'm in the clear... There is a Great Deal I Do Not Want to Know at Art in the Age with Margaux and Walter Kent, Stripped to the Teeth at the Toothless Cat Gallery with The Other Woman Collective and an as yet unnamed solo show at Le Cochon Noir...The work for AITA is done...I may make a new piece for the Toothless Cat show and I am still working out my ideas for the Le Cochon Noir show, but expect it to be a blend of new and remixed old work. Luckily the animals all lend themselves to fitting into new scenarios quite nicely...
My plan after this gauntlet of shows is over is to hibernate in my studio over the winter and create a few new bodies of work...some are newer ideas and some are older ideas that I've been sitting on for a while...
Oh and POST is also coming up and my studio will be open to the public on Oct 9th and 10th...Oh my...I feel like this weekend is the calm before a storm of craziness/productivity...!!!

TROPHY at B2 September 11 - October 7, 2010

Above is the card for an upcoming show at B2. My ideas for this show changed about a million times, until I came back around to some older work that I never really felt like was quite resolved...I reworked it a bit and put a different spin on it. I'm still not sure its resolved but it's got an interesting thing going on... We'll see...
