I greatly believe the instructor failed to provide a level playing field by taking opportunities for students to earn additional points which are very valuable to earning a passing score needed to move on.

Summer 2015 Update




Dear Friends,

If you are reading this and if you are a person, then you are a very important person.

Welcome to my summer newsletter. A lot has happened around the studio in the last few months and I’m excited to share it with you. Highlights include:

  • My first ever solo exhibition, which opened in June in the great city of Nashville.
  • Completion of Tricky Triangle, my sixty pound tarot deck that was exhibited at Secession Art and Design here in San Francisco
  • New and expanded studio space, where you can visit me during SF Open Studios (Nov 6-9).

If you are local to the Bay Area, I hope you can make it to Open Studios. It will be a great opportunity for you to check out both the new space and a huge selection of my work in person!

Please check out my progress and be in touch. If you are reading this it’s because at one point or at many points you have given me a reason to keep faith in what I am doing. So thanks for everything. I hope to hear from you soon.

IDEAS AT OCEAN BEACH EXHIBITION


IN JUNE, my partner Erin and I traveled to Vanderbilt University’s Sarratt Gallery in Nashville to attend my first ever solo exhibition. Curated by David Heustess, the show features print projects on canvas, paper, and wood based on a collection of one sentence stories set on the West Coast.

Since none of you could be there, I put together this video walkthrough.


TRICKY TRIANGLE


SAY HELLO TO TRICKY TRIANGLE, my most essential project of fiscal year 2015. Part mixed media screen print, part sixty pound tarot deck, part one sentence rhyme about an irreducible metaphysical problem, each work consists of screen prints on fabric, wood, and paper that are intricately layered and sealed in large wood boxes. Here the screen printing process is used to recreate photographs, artifacts, and curiosities from many points along the course of a history that is definitely personal and possibly infinite. This series asks the question “how is a physical imprint like our experience of time?”

FALL OPEN STUDIOS


SAVE THE DATES! San Francisco Open studios is the weekend of November 6-8. I’ll be showing off my newest works and my newest worskpace. A collaboration with my bride Erin Bregman, my new studio is both an effort to decouple work from home and the Mission District’s newest warehouse turned community artspace.

Didn’t think this type of thing was still possible in 2015 San Francisco?

Me neither.

But against all odds  Pacific Felt Factory is up and running, a 6,000 sq ft historic brick warehouse converted into below-market-rate artist studios, exhibition space, and event space.

If you are local to the Bay Area, please stop by on open studios weekend to check it our and say hi. More details soon.  
P.S.–Don’t worry, nothing bad happened to my original Harrison Street studio. Because screen printing is complicated, messy, and known to the State of California to cause cancer, I’m still making all my work out of there. Luckily, the two facilities are separated by just three city blocks.
