the studio (living room?) is heating up...

things have moved along at a nice clip over this past weekend. feel like i made some breakthroughs with materials (namely experimenting with multiple layers of shellac and countering with splashes of denatured alcohol on the water heater panels--even though the fumes are getting the best of me) and are now staggeringly close to a solid contextual frame for this upcoming body of work (sorry, no hints just yet). experiments are coming to a close and pure execution of the actual series is impending. i hope i can fall into a nice groove and some killer art will finally be coming out of the stagnant creative fog i've been in for much too long.

ode to the bearded lady...

Character is determined more by the lack of certain experiences than by those one has had.

To say that a work of art is good, but incomprehensible to the majority of men, is the same as saying of some kind of food that it is very good but that most people can't eat it.
Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)

my mind's combine is in constant stuck, always harvesting over the already harvested plot.

in my bed...there is no solitude, no comfort, or no friend.
my mind keeps me up as a prowler
who is just trying to break-in.
he's out there standing in the yard,
he stares at me through the window,
he steams the pane up with rancid breath,
smashing glass with closed fist.

drunk cookie monster...

experimentation with sumi painting on silver spray painted water heater drain pan.

looking for practical solutions in both materials and technique for showing a thematic collection of work in an unorthodox exhibition setting (sunset tavern-music venue).

the work needs to look good:

1. displayed on red/black wall.
2. in very low-lighting.
3. in a narrow and horizontal room with a low ceiling.
4. where people will potentially be in direct physical contact with the art.

any thoughts/suggestions...?

remixed found negative

by animal collective

Is it much that I feel I need
A solid soul and the blood I bleed
With a little girl, and by my spouse
I only want a proper house

I don't care for fancy things
Or to take part in a precious race
And children cry for the one who has
A real big heart and a father's grace

I don't mean to seem like I care about material things like a social status
I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls
