Apparent/Absolute #3-5

Apparent/Absolute #3-5
Inkjet prints from scanned negatives

These were produced for the Objective Art Collective's April show at Mutiny Radio Cafe. Like the "A/A" piece from last year's "Borderline Disorder" exhibition, these are prototypes for an in-progress body of work exploring perceptions of space and chronology.

This is the piece I showed in the Borderline Disorder exhibition at IVC's new gallery. It's sort of a prototype for a planned series, "Apparent/Absolute." More on that will be posted as it develops.

Borderline Disorder at IVC Gallery

After a way-too-long period of dormancy, I'm taking part in another show. It's at Imperial Valley College's new gallery space and opens on the 25th. I'm putting in some new work that's a big departure from my previous stuff, so the excitement's running high. Yesssss.

New Digs

I just relocated to a new city (Redlands, California) and am finding that I can't make much progress on any large-scale/long-term projects until I'm better acquainted with my new surroundings. Partly to avoid neglecting this blog while I get familiar with this place, and partly to keep my skills sharp, I've decided to shoot some stuff intuitively, without any specific intent or planning, while I'm out walking through my neighborhood and the surrounding area. These images will probably differ from those that I will take once I'm familiar with the area, so I'm interested to see what comes of it.

"¡¿Que Barrio?!" El Centro entry

"Poles #1" Gelatin silver prints, plexiglass, wood. Dimensions variable.

This is on display at Johnny Cab, the site of the El Centro half of the "¡¿Que Barrio?!" exhibition. It and its partner (which is on display at the Mexicali half of the exhibition) make up a two-part series called "Poles" that attempts to study opposites and the epistemological queries raised by such a study. For example, can each opposing part be defined not just in relation to the other, but also by its own traits? Do they even possess their own traits, or only those that can be contrasted with the other's?

¡¿Que Barrio?!

"¡¿Que Barrio?!" is an upcoming bi-national exhibition that I'm participating in. It's being held in two venues, Johnny Cab in El Centro and Mexicali Rose in Mexicali, with each artist contributing one piece of work for each gallery. A very large and diverse group of artists is involved so it promises to be an awesome show. It opens April 30th in El Centro and May 7th in Mexicali.
