CLOEMTPE

"CLOEMTPE" from San Francisco State University's Senior Open House in April 2008. 8 silver gelatin prints sealed onto wood with (I think) rubber cement and Mod Podge. This was shown in the Martin Wong Gallery with the work voted best in the show. I should've posted this before the Obscured Eye work to maintain the proper chronology, but I'm showing it now because it was my first attempt at anything sculptural.

Kyle these sculptural works of yours are very creative. Even the photography is also polished. I can see why you won the award. Congratulations.

What does "CLOEMTPE" mean?

Kyle Herrera said...

Hey Emmanuel thanks very much for the compliments. "CLOEMTPE" is an anagram of "complete." The first four letters of the word are interspersed among the last four in the same way the two sets of four images are interspersed with one another. I didn't want anything too didactic and I thought the wordplay was kind of cool and goofy. Are you showing in the ¿Que Barrio? show?

I'll be in it. See you there?

Yes, see you there.
