My paintings and drawings and once in a while a work that I like.

Louise Bourgeois

I braved the Louise Bourgeois Show last Friday with Pierson, my 2-year-old. I only had about an hour before we had to hop on the train and head home for bedtime. But in that hour I found some new favorites and was totally re-convert to Louis Bourgeois.

Her ability to transcend the medium is inspirational. And her subject matter is sincere--revolving around life, humanity and relationships. I enjoyed the aesthetic of her new rooms/cells. And Pierson favored the towers (I know because he kept telling me that he wanted to knock them over).

I had a few favorite drawings, but haven't been able to find images of them online. They were part of Bourgeois work that I had never seen before.

Bourgeois is apparent in all her work--from drawing to created environments--but the work also develops with the time and the course of the art world. Bravo!

On the Wall and Up to

It's been a nutty summer...or fall. I'm really not sure what season it is right now. My wallet was stolen at Time Square last week (one of the reasons I don't ever go there). The next day I lost my keys. A couple of days later our upstairs neighbor flooded our bathroom and bedroom while we were away.
On a more exciting note, Pierson started 'school' which is really a one hour a week KINDERMUSIC class in the village.

Here are some upcoming activities on my Fall calendar:

Going to Boston next weekend for Mike's J Query Conference, which will be held at this Frank Ghery building.
See Louise Bourgeois at the Guggenheim. (closes the 28th)
See Jeff Koons on the roof at the Met. (closes the October 26th)

Chashama's Tax-Free Art Photos

My two guys and a painting. This morning when I tried to play trains with Pierson he said, 'no, you have your painting.' I guess it's true. Pierson has his cars and I have my painting.

I enjoyed these two paintings that were part of the show: (there were a few more I liked, but my photos didn't turn out so well.)

About Me

Brooklyn, NY
I am a artist living in Brooklyn and currently an artist-in-residence with Chashama at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. I have been working in encaustic for the past few years, but am usually trying out a couple of different art making media at once. Peter Everett once called my work kitch, but I don't think it bothers me.
