Canyon detail, sirens, and hanging trace paper installation. @cincycac
The generations together again. The very first paste up portrait I ever created was this image on the right, of my paternal grandfather. Years and years later, I made the portrait on the left, of my father. The change in my style over time is a journey that you can see just by looking from one face to other. Both of these father figures have since passed away, so, putting them together on a wall after all these years was a special feeling.
Happy birthday @mashondatifrere ~ thank you for your grace and for being such an ally on this creative journey. Onward!

More paste ups from Cincinnati.
Back side view, miniature installation under glass cloche. Mixed media, wood, silk screened mylar, paint, and cut paper.
Still from Frederic King’s documentary “Fearless” which he created to accompany The Canyon installation. It will be online for as long as the show is up, so only till Feb 25th! Watch it while you can! Link’s in my bio. (This shot is by Paul Poet, excerpted from the film Empire Me which includes a segment on the Swimming Cities rafts in Venice.)
So I have this thing that I’ve worn 365 days a year for the last 10 years. It’s a belt that’s also my brain. “I’d lose my head it it wasn’t screwed on” is the story of my life and so I’ve opted to keep most necessary objects (wallet keys phone olfa knife etc) screwed on too. People often ask, what’s with the belt? Well, my friend @fabrichorse made it, and the @cincycac even made a little video about it which is linked in my bio today.
Installation view, wall papers and sculpture as seen from the staircase. Zaha Hadid’s iconic shifting planes were such a huge part of this installation. Something about the design of the @cincycac made it very hard to tell how large the spaces were. When I was planning The Canyon, I would look at this space one moment and think it was monumental, but the next moment it would appear downright diminutive. I began to think this shifting spatial quality was part of the unique genius of @zahahadidarchitects.
