Last week to see The Canyon at @cincycac! Last week for Archivist’s Circle too! Link in my bio.
Last week for Archivist’s Circle! This past year I created my first retrospective exhibition. In the process of unearthing all of the work I’ve made over the last 20 years we found so many buried treasures that we decided to make an online component to accompany the show. Archivist’s Circle hosts artworks of all shapes and sizes, from stickers and paper cut outs all the way up to sculptures and major works, each representative of a specific time period. Amanda, a single color silk screen was just released to celebrate the show’s last week. Details: “Amanda, Silkscreen print on Hahnemuhle Copperplate Paper. Paper Size: 26″ x 28″ | Image Size: 21.5” x 23” | Signed edition of 100 | $275
Please allow 1-2 weeks for shipping.” Link in bio.
“Women’s March Youth EMPOWER is calling for students, teachers, school administrators, parents and allies to take part in a
for 17 minutes at 10am across every time zone on March 14, 2018 to protest Congress’ inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods. We need action. Students and allies are organizing the national school walkout to demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship.
Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school.
Parents have the right to send their kids to school in the mornings and see them home alive at the end of the day.
We are not safe at school. We are not safe in our cities and towns. Congress must take meaningful action to keep us safe and pass federal gun reform legislation that address the public health crisis of gun violence. We want Congress to pay attention and take note: many of us will vote this November and many others will join in 2020. Join us in saying
There’s a new series up on Archivist’s Circle
In honor of closing “Swoon: The Canyon 1999-2017”, and of the ephemeral nature of site specific installations, we have decided to release a limited edition installation shot of Medea, one of the show’s key sculptural environments.

Size: 19″ x 13″ | Signed edition of 65 | $75 link in bio under 2017
This cut paper portrait created during the time I spent building rafts with 30 of my closest friends, along with a spectrum of work created from 1999-2017 will be available for just a few more days on Archivist’s Circle through the link in my bio. It comes down when the show comes down Feb 25th.
We just today released a single color silk screen edition based off of this, one of my most formative early blocks. Here she is pasted up in Brooklyn circa 2002/2003. Link to the edition in my bio.
Yoooooo! She’s live! My little Phoenix who got destroyed and then got reborn as this silk screen edition just went live on the Archivist’s Circle site. Find her under 2002 through the link in my bio.
Amanda was an incredibly formative portrait for me. She marks the beginning of developing my own style with linoleum block carving for the street. With this portrait I unearthed, perhaps for the first time, a special magnetism contained for me within the faces of women. I also uncovered a tendency for my drawings of women to blossom outward until their form resembles a goddess. Though it’s been a while now, I remember making this drawing so vividly because she instantly seemed to have a life of her own, and with that an insistence to be born. It was hard for me to even leave the house much during the weeks of drawing and carving because she always seemed to be calling me back to the studio to finish bringing her to life. The original block for this was destroyed by the elements, and I didn’t have a print of it for the retrospective until a good friend unearthed one at the last minute, allowing her to be in the show, and also also to reborn in a silk screen series! It releases tomorrow at 2pm EST under 2002, Archivist’s Circle. Link in my bio.
Happy Mardi Gras to all my New Orleaneans! Thinking of you today while working on drawings from The Music Box. @neworleans.airlift
