Sightless rhythm on a single sheet


This was one of the books I was trying to get ready for the show at 110 CHURCH. Most of my work is a ritual. Rhythmic mark-making made in the silence of my studio. I can hear the rhythm of my drawings as I make them. The strike of a pencil, pen, charcoal or other medium makes a distinct sound and so drives the next mark. 

With this book I decided to experience drawing without looking. I made each mark by dragging my hand a percieved distance and then pierced the paper with an awl. I did this point by point, row by row, column by column.

making really BIG art

I'm planning on making some big art.

Maybe directly painting or maybe wheatpaste. This is the space I'm looking to draw on. Testing some ideas in a SketchUp file.

What would a drawingaday look like this big? Or maybe I should make a whiteboard and draw something different every once in a while?

Get the work out where people see it.

Getting work out where it can be seen isn't as easy as it sounds. Chosing where it should be seen is critical to the perception of the viewer.

What happened this past weekend was pretty amazing. I was invited to show my work by and with artists I respect. They have a show and sale every year near the holidays. It's been going on for years. This is the sixteenth. I got my work out there to be seen. 

Walking Goldsworthy's wall.

Autumn in the mountains is a technicolor dream.

Recently spent a few days up North in Kingston and took a road trip to Storm King. Two favs one is this wall which I followed across the park. Sometimes straight as an arrow, others serpentine, yet others out of sight.

I want to make some drawings that make me feel like that — bisecting a field.

To-do list MASS MoCA

Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective comprises 105 of LeWitt’s large-scale wall drawings, spanning the artist’s career from 1969 to 2007. These occupy nearly an acre of specially built interior walls that have been installed—per LeWitt’s own specifications—over three stories of a historic mill building situated at the heart of MASS MoCA’s campus.

Playing in the studio with Vine.

I wanted to capture a little bit of studio action today and decided to do it with Vine. Love having such an easy and structured way to make short vids. I'm going to start making a series. Hope to make one a month in the new year. Make it a feature here at my journal.

I'm working on these new collages — they have a voabulary much like my drawings. Enjoy.
