Here are some low quality photos of quick sketches I've done recently. I'm trying to quit smoking again, waiting for the obsession to be lifted...any day now. Below that is a video still from a photo project I'm working on with Mistina Hanscom. That's me in the photo, the still is courtesy of Bob Menefee, who has been video recording our antics. I'll get into more about the project soon. It's called 'Drag Me to Heaven,' and that is indeed myself in the photo. Below that is a video of the lenticular version the floral GIF from my last post. This video is from the Love Haven show at Trolley Square that I was lucky to be a part of.
Here's this guy finished. I uploaded this as a work in progress for my first post, and wanted to follow up with the finished product. From one piece to the next, they're all so dramatically different. I don't know how to account for this, but I like it.
Nicole Eisenman was known for a similar tendency. She said that her early solo exhibitions looked like group shows. Sounds like a good show to me; I like it when people articulate disparate parts of themselves and present them all together. It allows me to continue to piece it all together long after I've seen the works.
It also seems very honest and courageous. Like, there are certain aspects of ourselves that we bring out for our friends, while there are other aspects that we bring out in a job interview, or around an uncle. What a relief to be able to articulate and externalize different facets of the self and present them all in the same room, and then assure people that it's all me, the me that you see here.
