I'm an artist duking it out in the trenches. This blarg is a compendium of things that turn my crank, keep me up at night, and generally get me all razzed up. Some things you will see are direct influences, others are vague and hurried glances. Check out my website from time to time, or follow me on Facebook. There is always something coming down the pipeline.
I try to give source info/credit on everything I post, and so should you. If you don't see a text credit, try clicking on the image for the source. If you are the originator of, or have info about a thing, contact me.
I post images of my own work from time to time. Feel free to reblog them, but PLEASE include my name and tag info. Its a respect thing.
This Blarg is best viewed on it's own, not in your Tumblr dashboard or RSS feed. Just say'n.
NEXT WEEK AT NCECA: ”Site and Subjectivity: Charting Contemporary Landscapes”
Thursday, March 21st 3:30pm- 5:00pm Room 351, Houston Convention Center
Moderated by artist Kyle Triplett and including panelists Andy Sloan Jackson, Jacob Koestler, Benjamin Stout, this panel will present diverse perspectives on the notion of site and site-specificity through the lens of expanded ceramic practices and digital media. Panelists will address a varied approach to landscape, from the public and municipal, the natural and constructed to the fictional and esoteric.
By depositing on the shoulders of novelty the main burden of modernity – to leave a dark past behind and move into an illuminated future – commodities were assured a place in the fetishistic pantheon. Commodities were “dream images” or “wish images”: more than objects, they represented utopian desires. Buying goods quenched the thirst for temporal transcendence, replacing a heavy, stifled era with a lightweight, mobile one in which the world was felt to be more at hand due to the myriad items now available in a rapidly expanding market.»
