Some new photos from a studio visit on the Hunter MFA Tumblr…
Studio Visit - September 2014
“I am examining life and my experience of time, space, and matter. My work is influenced by the basic processes and mechanisms that govern us—growth, decay, consumption—searching for the punctum within our everyday experiences. Recently, I have introduced elements of the natural and active, meditations on the state of our environment. What are the implications of humanity if we are not self-sustaining? What does it mean if we can acknowledge it, yet cannot stop it?”
Hello World! I’m in the MFA Studio Art program at Hunter College and I started a TUMBLR to spotlight studio visits I do with friends and other students in the program. I shoot all the pictures and the artists submit short statements about their work and links to things they’re watching/thinking about/reading/listening to. It’s pretty cool. Check it out. New work every week..!
Studio Visit - August 2014
"My work deals with exhausted images, burnt-out iconography, emblems that have lost their function, and banners for the displaced. As of late I have been painting using found fabrics and using mono printing techniques to create images that reflect a loss or removal, an absence while being emphatic in their material presence. I want to reassert painting as a medium of touch, being essentially about literal physical contact registered by the mark, and to interrogate what implications a tactile painting language has today, right now."
New photos from my shoot with Weyes Blood for FADER just went up on my site.
The Fall Fashion issue of FADER also features new work from my uber-talented friends Ben Grieme, Joe Leavenworth and Jake Stangel.
New work for the website coming soon!
