some connections

I'm not sure I've ever posted anything that's not my own work. That is surely not a good thing. At any rate, better late then never and you gotta start somewhere. Here are a couple of worthwhile connections to my own personal investigations:
number one:

Philippe Halsman - jumpology
Probably any first year photo student knows his work, but I came to it only recently. The parallels between what he was doing and what I am discovering are spot-on. When he asked people to jump for the camera, (or, in my case, pretend to float), "the mask falls", and much is revealed about the true nature of the one involved. Their body language tells so much. The excitement for me comes in collaging everyone together and discovering hidden relationships within the context of a swarm.

number two:
the swarm......


number three:
...why the many are smarter than the few...

What I've been up to lately

hello to the handful of you who may see this....
there haven't been many new drawings, paintings or shows lately because I have been wrapped up in a large photo project. I began with myself, and now I am photographing everyone I know. the concept is a giant swarming mass of people floating in space, all connected on a personal level... like a massive diagram of my own social network.

I've been spending months on this and there are months more to go...

D O B at Pierogi 2000

Eight of my drawings are now available in the flat files at Pierogi 2000 in Brooklyn.
I am beyond psyched since this is one of my favorite galleries in the world.

Manifest Equality - preview night

Went to the preview night last night. Its definitely more of a big box party kind of atmosphere than serious art show. Very fun place to be and lots of art to check out. Expect there to be music and lots going on. Big closing party is this saturday, don't miss it!

Manifest Equality - Group Art Show This Week

I have a painting in this show <<><>< I know it sounds crazy but I entered a contest to be in it, and out of over a thousand entries I won! I'm one of 5 contest winners showing work along side a huge number of other amazing artists. I definitely have to thank Freddi Cerasoli who is in the show and told me about the contest. Come next week, either to the opening wednesday night or the big party saturday. It is all of course for a really good cause. see you there!

Blowin' up in Japan <<< Plus 81 Magazine

I just got published in a Japanese art magazine called PLUS 81, (or +81) for their Spring Issue on Pattern Graphics.

Watch the little animation and midway thru you'll see some of my art go flashing by on the pages.

This is a really, really high quality magazine, and they were super nice, and I still can't believe I got in it.
2010_02_26 update: This magazine is tough to find in the U.S., BUT>>>> apparently you can find it in New York here, maybe here and hopefully soon in Los Angeles at Kinokuniya in Little Tokyo. We went there today and they had many copies of the magazine.

Art of Elysium - Heaven Gala 2010

I got published in a book! This is a first for me and I'm really excited. It is the catalog for the Art of Elysium Benefit Auction to be held in conjunction with Christie's at Palihouse Holloway this spring, March 4th. I donated a painting to the charity and here it is. Below are photos from their big fundraising event this past weekend.

So I went last weekend to the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala 2010. Shephard Fairey hosted it and did all the graphics, they had a fashion show at dinner, and Billy Idol performed. Yeah, he's pretty old now. But that was all just side-show to the huge number of famous actors everywhere. (Google it if you wanna see who was there.) Here's some pictures of the event, my nerdy self on the red carpet, and the catalog book that they published for the upcoming auction of donated artwork at Christie's in Beverly Hills.
