Jungle Beat Cha Cha / gauche on paper / approx 3'x4.5'

New work sneak peak.  Themes –

-softening pastel colors washes – very transparent/vivid / aggravating

-interchangeable sense of space / sense of volume / physically hollow / conceptually awkward

-jungle beat is based on a series of interlinked elephant drawings / linked by trunks / echoed through arm on foot beat / elephants create beats / slamming their trunks on the ground or trees

-janes dog was based solely on my friend’s color palette / was given the palette and decided to do a painting of her sweet sweet dog Arkoo.

-broad direct action / central visual plane / confronted with shape / graffiti characteristic

So I am curating a show at my professor’s art space –

DOWN LOW AND IN THE GARDEN

Featuring works by NIU alums/soon to be –

Oct. 22 / 7 – 10 pm

808 Garden st.

Dekalb, IL 60115

We are all good friends and we basically wanted to do a show together for at least 2 years.  I feel really psyched to approach the space with all these great pieces and just turn it into a beautiful show.  Been working alot on this sculpture collaboration for the show so come out and smell the grass.
