Italo Calvino is an amazing writer. I keep coming back to his book, Cosmicomics, as something to mentally chew on and as an inspiration for my art. This series of stories, based around creation, time and space, has indirectly inspired my new series, the foundation of which is being layered with shredded bills and various other documents. Continuing on with my unending fascination with lots of texture and color play, there will be many layers upon layers. Photos to shortly come!
My fiancee and I recently adopted a dog and needless to say, I haven’t done much in the studio recently. It feels great to be back in, even if its just drawing in my sketchbook.
Next Tuesday, October 8th, is my art opening at Alchemy, located here in Gloucester, MA. It begins at 7pm and will continue through until closing time (usually about 9:30!) When the general manager asked me to do another hanging, I knew there was no way to turn it down. The last hanging I had was at this particular restaurant and I had a blast. Great crowd, delicious food and a fantastic atmosphere. This is my first time hanging photography so I’m a little nervous and definitely excited. Hope to see you there!
