bear research, favourite English snack food, I was the weather in LA this week, Indian astrology,
my least favourite song of all time being recommended to me, and words of encouragement- always.
was happy to have the opportunity to spend the month of February as the artist-in-residence in Finland at the Nordic Art School/Drake Arts Centre. now back in Toronto- putting this collage back together (among other pieces) — finishing up this new work.
now don’t move. stay perfectly still and silent forever.
how i missed you gemma ward. one of the best models from 10? years ago…

“When work is genuinely new and strong,” as he [American art scholar Meyer Schapiro] put it, “only a few sensitive people recognize it.” Usually, true enthusiasm is ignited by fellow artists. Later, word spreads to ever-enlarging circles of critics, scholars, and museum people, and lastly to the public.

a very cleaned up / scaled down version of my usual studio wall collages. tried to put it in a frame..
didn’t want any colour in this show..so this work, with many others was cut.
different instincts about how to present all the new work.
this will be the best show i’ve done so far.

^^^ new text piece. if only i could photograph it. my white work resists documentation. my camera resists being used. it is held together with tape. ** you have a very peculiar way of speaking. ** i’ve changed the format of this blog for the first time since 2009. ** up next – what my voice sounds like. brace yourself.
