Please join me at Gray Contemporary on Saturday, September 7th from 6-8p for the opening of Guide Star, featuring a selection of plywood works created this summer while participating in the 100 Day Project. It goes without saying that I’m excited these pieces are receiving a presentation above and beyond a daily showcase on the ‘Gram. Gorgeous works on paper by David Janesko will also be on view.
High vacation season always brings a rush of good vibes as traveling friends report waiting alongside my work at IAH. This spiraling portal from 2013 is a portion of the big one and is awaiting your next international voyage from Terminal D!
A blobful Soft Target is newly up at the home of my number one biggest fan. The last time I visited we gazed at the wall and discussed which nail to use. This time, we got it done! (Wall faux finish and installation layout all hers)
My last project of the year was an on-site installation of a series of custom wall sculptures for the soon-to-open AC Hotel in Los Angeles. These abstract, dimensional pieces belong to a family of other work made of laser-cut plywood offcuts and display some different curling and forms. Setting up for a day by the entrance meant that the installation was the focal point of everyone going in and out of the building, and elicited all the typical curiosity and words of encouragement reserved for a woman on an 8-foot ladder with nails in her mouth.
While I was only in town for a moment, other highlights included finally getting to meet Olivia Ciummo’s recent human creation and having an afternoon visit to Hauser & Wirth with Betsy Seder. A Zoe Leonard photo show was one of the exhibitions on display, which was a treat to get to see and chew on with a photographer before dashing through the classic southern California sunshine back to the airport. In more ways than one, I spent this solstice above the clouds.
