i see you

Today I started working with my summer photos.  this is a quick film i made, edited with imovie.  This one's called "I See You".  Hope to make more soon!

check out the amazing works of William Kentridge (click to see video) His animated drawings are awe-inspiring to say the least.

Romance explodes in Union Square studio...

gathering inspiration from Edith Wharton.

felt strips, beginning of shag "grass" carpet

feeling the love...

painted my studio "Romance" pink.

finally it looks like i'm hard at work!

Sunday July 19, it was 5:30 in the morning, and Mary and I (yes, Mary and Mary aka "double trouble") arrived at White Columns gallery in Chelsea to await our fate in casting for a new Bravo reality program about artists otherwise known as "Untitled Art Project".   

5:30 a.m., we were # 7 & 8 in line...

the line grew around the corner

all of the artsy hopefuls.

tired Mary, running on no sleep.

Long story short, the Maries were not meant for their television debut (yet, anyways) but it was a fun and sleep-deprived experience. I made it through the portfolio review and onto the "judging" room, where a prestigious panel would deem the artist/entertainer fit or not fit for the reality world. I felt rather relieved being rejected, partly because I'm not sure what kind of mold they would have liked me to fit into. What kind of Contemporary Art is viewer friendly for a TV audience?  Will the contestants be art-world cliches or actual undiscovered talent from across the U.S.?  In any case, I can't wait to see the show when it debuts.. perhaps one of those many freaks in line will be part of the "lucky 13".
