ok…again with the lack of blogging…i don’t know, this blogging thing, i just can’t get it down, i’m working on it, one day i’ll blog like the goof tweets….anyway, i’m having a show that i’m collaborating pieces with artist scott pickering. scott is based here in cleveland and i’ve always been a fan of his work…here’s something i wrote up for the show..
“i’ve know Scott since the early 90’s from playing with many different bands (prisonshake, my dad is dead, etc) and soon there after became aware of his art work. fresh monstrous, hat wearing, garbage pelting, funny figures that bounce at you with bold applications of color…or no color at all. regardless the medium the message is conveyed, these fresh dudes are gonna grab you by the hair and whisper nonsense in your ears till they pop. Scott and i decided to take the two of our different approaches to the paper and combine them and see what happens. what’s grown from the mayhem are some solid expressions of serious nonsense that leaves the viewer satisfied.”
the show is called “double dog daddy-o” and will be february 17th, at the derek hess gallery, located at 1300 west 78th street, cleveland. this has been a fun collaboration, hope some of you can make it to…here’s one of the pieces we’ve done together..
