Transformers: Re-contextualizing Our Material Culture

I'm so happy to be part of this exhibit at Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts  in Melbourne Florida. It s my first museum show. 

September 17 - December 17, 2016

Contemporary artists Jodie Mack, Garry Noland, Julie Peppito and Gerry Trilling regard material culture as raw material. They use it to create artwork of a high order, informed by its fraught, untidy, intimate origins - paintings, sculptures, films, and tapestries in which the ordinary stuff of our lives becomes splendid and strange.

This exhibition is curated by contemporary artist China Marks and presented in conjunction with Radiant Messenger: Drawings by China Marks on view at the Foosaner Art Museum (October 22, 2016 – January 8, 2017).

2. I have been applying for several public art calls over the past couple of months:

Austin Art in Public Places Pre-Qualified Artist Pool 1-30-15

Kaiser Foundation Fellowship, Tulsa, Oklahoma  1-30-15

Gowanus, Brooklyn, Call for Public Art Proposals  3-2-15  

Clare Weiss Fellowship, site proposals for Court Square,  Long Island City, NY  3-22-15  

*See attached images for the Clare Weiss proposal in Long Island City.

*Clare Weiss Description:  I will paint a close up version of the rezoning map showing Court Square. Mosaic halves of heads sitting on the map like small hills, their eyes just above the surface, their heads embedded with bumps and pieces of debris will be placed all over the map - each head looking away from the others the way we have been conditioned to do as New Yorkers.
