    A sweet suite of Prints, and the brief road ahead

    Along with the installation in fresno, I also created a new suite of prints, and a set of sparkle printed t shirts. This work like many of the editions i’ve pulled in the past 3 years have been the result of enthusiastic printmakers like Matt Hopson-Walker, and his crew Jason Bonilla and Grayson Brown, who all pitched in their energy and know how to pull off an absurd amount of work in between my building of the Fresno Piece.

    Today I did finish the Fresno Piece. Although this is not a shot of the finished piece, it is an awesome view of a kindergarten class doing a site visit from above.

    fres-no day-4

    It really is like the difference between night and day in here, especially when it changes from day to night. Tomorrow will be first split day with morning spent in the gallery, and afternoon spent in the print studio. With any luck the evening will be spent in ethiopia.

     
     

    Fres-no day-3

    Day 3 was a good day. I managed to get the sleeves suspended and begin laying in some more of the sticks. It has been really amazing being in this room as the light changes throughout the day. Today  I finally looked at all the video monitors around the building that were glowing with images Read more...

    Here is some extra thick rives cream paper originally Read more...
