this new image is for a show that is suppose to open tonight in brooklyn at factory fresh,

goodness, what i liar i have proven to be. instead of sharing amazing things that relate to drawing, ive just been drawing. this was something that i had wanted to do after my last show, thinking that not only could it fill out the work a bit, but that some interesting discussions could possibly come out of it.

as i am waiting for the work to arrive here in the city i am reading about this incredible show that i am inviting everyone to come and see with me, 'Mummies of the World'. It is the largest traveling exhibition of mummies ever assembled. ever. assembled. my most sought after muse. bodies encased in layers of stories reflecting and cultivating unparalleled creative feats. histories torn from these newly assigned authors to be rewoven into the emperors new clothes.
a quote from the show regarding ornamental body modification, "It's clearly got some kind of meaning and it had a purpose — I'm willing to bet," said Gill-Frerking.

if LA is too far i will recommend the jack burman show at clint roenisch closing on the 10th.

Tapping the Admiralssss

so, i just wanted to begin this post by thanking everyone who came out to the show and to say that i really enjoyed meeting some of the people whose blogs i follow for the first time. it was a great night! and if you didnt get a chance to make it out then the show is up until nov 2nd at LE gallery.

i also wanted to take this opportunity to position the works in their intended narrative context. each triptych consists of a specimen from a natural history museum subjected to a different type of human preservation, a custom kafka 'in the penal colony' inspired torture machine and then a device which speaks to that place in between death and display. example, an ossuary for a six legged calf pointing to how these special and unique creatures begin and end at the end of the rainbow. too obvious? maybe.
im also going to be adding links to...mummies. thats right, all of the inspirational mummies that relate to each of the pieces just because i find them fascinating. thank you heather pringle and thank you kafka. and the 'our lady of hudson bay' mummy displayed at the museum of civilization.
i apologise for the inconsistency in photos, im working through the documentation process. i hope to have my website updated this weekend.

three weeks in

i've been in brooklyn for three weeks and the place really hasn't changed my work except for the fact that i now draw terrifying skeletons...or rather one otherwise known as the six legged calf.
