The BRIGHT and SHINING LIGHT of IRREVERENCE
My first solo exhibition, title above, is on view in the Kalkin House at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont from May 17th until October 25th. I'll be giving a gallery talk there on August 13.
Additionally, I've built another blog devoted to the installation THE SALON OF LOVE AND HORROR which is included in the show. The SALON is approximately 40 portraits done by a variety of artists from around the world depicting me as a human/animal hybrid:
some of the work included in the show:
2009, 12" X 17" each
A set of five prints based upon a suite of silhouettes in a bedroom of the Brick House located on the shores of Lake Champlain. The interiors are actual rooms from the Brick House, two of them from the doll's house.
2009, 36" X 55"
A wallpaper design reminiscent of nineteenth century botanical illustration.
HEXAGONAL QUILT print
2009, 40" X 40"
Also inspired by a quilt from the Shelburne's illustrious collection, also digitally-generated noise, this time in tessellated form.
SQUARE QUILT print
2009, 44" X 44"
Inspired by a quilt in the Shelburne's collection, the squares are computer-generated noise fields.
FAUXNASETTI bar towels
2009, printed cotton, 20" X 36" each
An homage to the great Italian designer, these 5 bar towels are the country cousins of good design.
2009, 54" X 80" woven cotton "photo throw"
2009, 42 inches round, stained glass made in collaboration with Marina Borker.
