The Process

On 26, Feb 2016 | In Notes

Having worked in archives and history being a central crux to my art, I thought it worthwhile to arrange to have my ongoing archaic printing process documented. Here is a selection of images following me through the cyanotype process from studio, to dark room, to rooftop sunlight exposure, and back to the darkroom again.

Ocean / Ocean

On 09, Feb 2016 | In Notes

Strong sunlight suitable for printing my cyanotype, gum dichromate, and Van Dyke prints has become a rarity over these winter months. So, I have been plotting out new projects while I await the sunshine’s return.

From the Dark Room

On 16, Oct 2015 | In Artwork

It’s been a busy time in the dark room running test after test, screwing with negative color profiles, experimenting with different pigment combinations. Many of the results should be burned. But some mysterious surprises have also emerged.

On October 10th, Oakland Art Murmur will be hosting its annual Benefit + Art Auction extravaganza. And a piece from my Robinwood series will in attendance and on the preverbal auction block. Event details and tickets available here >

 

– Post-Event UPDATE –

I am happy to report that the Benefit was a wonderfully successful event! And am so flattered that there was a very civil bidding war over my piece. Video of the event, with cameos of myself at the check-in table + my piece hanging on the wall. Enjoy!

Ordinary Time

On 21, Aug 2015 | In Artwork, Notes

After attending Catholic school for 12 years, I sometimes conceptualize time within the liturgical categories of “Ordinary Time” -the ordinary everyday periods- and … Exceptional (?!) Time -e.g. Advent / Christmas, Lent / Easter, et cetera. However, since moving to California, it feels as though the patterns of our seasons have yet to settle into any “Ordinary Time.” Once daily rhythms settle into one groove, something (an exhibition, a new job, et cetera) comes along to shake it all up again.

Eastward / Westward

On 01, Jun 2015 | In Notes

I love roadtripping. It might be one of my favorite things. And I have recently discovered how awesome roadtrip-image-making can be.
The mix of chance and purposefuliness is fantastic. And the pleasure of going through the hundreds of snaps brings me right back to the open road. Most are crap, but there are a few winners you knew would be there. But best of all is the surprise gems.

Here are a few favs from a springtime trip from Oakland to Denver on the occasion of the unparalleled Monique Crine‘s wedding + solo show at Denver MCA.

 

Cali to Colo. And back again.
