A trip inside the mind of an artist.
At the same time that I’m still trying to explore this idea of palimpsests, I’ve been working on a new series of paintings. The idea came to me as I was driving back from a visit to Sigrid Sarda’s studio in New Palz. Sigrid is so interesting and her studio is such a mindfuck that I thought, “I really want to write a review of this studio visit.” Like an art critical essay. Like a meditation on my brief time inside Sigrid’s head. But I’m not really all that excited by adding to the world of art reviews I have to say. And I’m really focused on making art right now. So it seemed like the right thing to do to combine these things into one endeavor.
So a new series was born! And the first painting in that series is happily sitting in a gallery in Jersey City waiting for people to look at it. I’m very pleased about that turn of events I have to say.
I’ll get some photos of this series up as soon as I can.
So go see the show. It’s at Curious Matter, it’s called “Dangerous Toys”, and it runs until November 11.
