MOre Fuller

I have been working on the unnatural selection monoprints and I will also hang those at the Fuller Projects when I go back on Friday. We will see how they fit in with the other pieces.
The "bed" was a nightmare to get together. And it still looks kind of short but it resembles a bed, right? I really wanted to install some stacked bottles in the unused doorway, but ran out of time. Instead we (mostly wyatt) stacked bottles in one window. They are stacked to eye level and above and the lights from outside shinning through the bottles look glowy and warm.

Fuller Projects Install

Installed a version of Surrogate on Sunday at the Fuller Projects in Bloomington. This is a student run gallery at Indiana University. It is for installation work and contemporary, experimental stuff. The IDS (student) newspaper interviewed me while we were there. Can't wait to see what they write up! I don't think I said anything too dumb. The installation was hectic and I assumed I would have a few student volunteers and I didn't (except Sara Nordling, who stopped by to help for a bit). And I didn't realize some of the walls would be plaster so... I had to adapt. Wyatt, Jason (Wyatt's bother) and I installed for about 10 hours with a quick lunch break over at Yogi's Bar across the street. It was a big job for a show that will only be open for the 2 hour reception. But when I go back down I will take some nice formal looking documentation type pics.

MPIAD fountain square

I participated in MPIAD again this year in fountain square. It was hot and winding making it even more difficult to work out on the sidewalk making art out of paper. I made a book with the help of my sister. If she didn't help I would not have completed it. It is called 27 artists in the fountain and consists of 27 blind contour drawings in color pencil. The book is made of a greenish sheet of twinrocker paper and the cover is a white twinrocker watercolor paper. Each page had a rough white square painted on it before I began to draw. This is the longest book I have ever made! I wanted to make the book then walk around and do quick portraits of different artists but I ran out of time and the drawing are actually all of my sister, Jessie.

science of art pics

Got images from Science of Art at Desotorow Gallery in Savannah, GA. Kind of disappointing they didn't even hang a 1/4 of what they were suppose to/ sent, but it's hit and miss with this kind of thing. I'm surprised when galleries agree to hang this work it is very time consuming. And so far my experience is that the directions I send are rarely followed. The documentation is always a surprise. None the less this is an interesting installation. It looks more cute than overwhelming.
