It's been a while I know but I'm back making work again. I have a new show coming up in May with Marjorie Grigonis, MARKSTWOMAKE. The show will include a few older drawings that haven't been shown before and a series of new drawings. This is the first layer on some of the new work.
This is a new series of posts documenting my process of creating a new studio. The space will serve as a personal art studio. Heavybubble HQ and gallery space. This requires some careful thought. Gathering requirements, physical attributes and needs; all contribute to a successful outcome.
Ok. Soon I will go crazy if I don't take a trip to friend Peter Fraterdeus' printshop. Been talking about making letterpress prints of Egyptian Waters for months now. Time to stop talking and head out there on a ROAD TRIP. Will be taking sheets of Rives BFK but will look at printing on some handcrafted sheets too.
About Exquisite Letterpress :
Getting work photographed professionally is an adventure. I have a very kind friend that is going to do this for me. Yes, I will give him a nice gift. It is essential that I determine how I will mount some of my larger drawings, drawings on vellum and synthetic paper.
Ok, I'm embracing the chaos and our virtually useless economy. I just want to make some art. It looks as though I may be moving from my currently only half unpacked studio,
Economics are tossing my studio about like half a cork in a turbulent ocean. Everything is up in the air and I'm unsure of where I will land. I'm packing again. In the meantime I try to sketch and work on some installation ideas and large scale work. I hope I will be able to make some art soon.
