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.
WhileI knew that the opening would be in the evening, I was nevertheless surprised and extremely delighted to be able to introduce this piece to people at night. Though it was not obvious to me when I was putting it together in the studio, finalizing the work in the garden made me feel at certain, transcendent moments like I had made something dark and a bit ominous that was capable of piercing the sky. Even though most of the time I see rolled film tubes arranged in a tiered, circular cluster, the fleeting moments where I’m able to become aware of something beyond the material are the ones I treasure.
