Studio and Show Images

shot by Yung during the opening at Wayfarers. It’s always interesting to see your work and studio through someone else’s eyes… Go to his Flickr page to see all his shots from the opening.

I should have time to write a bit about the show in another week or so, but until then, here are some quick shots taken by Zach Seeger before the opening. Enjoy! More to come of the rest of the show soon… The show will be up until October 16th, so there is plenty of time to come see it and the studios in person. Hope to see you there!

I hope you can make it! I think it is going to be a really great show and am getting more and more excited the closer we get to the opening. This week is the big week for building out the gallery and making sure everything at Wayfarers is ready for our first ever INAUGURAL SHOW!

Check out my show announcement and the Facebook invite for more information. But really all you need to know is September 16, 7 to 11 pm for a great opening and September 16 to October 16 for how long the show is up. And the address is 1109 Dekalb, off the Kosciuzcko stop on the J train, close to the intersection of Dekalb and Broadway. Be there or be square!

It’s show time again! My last show at the Studio Center is coming up–only 3 weeks till I start installing! The show will sort of sum up my year here–a mini retrospective if you will. Hopefully a nice way to end my year-long staff-artist residency. Check out this pretty little show announcement…

Week 23 of 48

July 16, 2010

Writing a little late this week because of the show opening Wednesday night but finally found some time to sort through the hundreds of photos I took on day 1. Images from the actual opening are up on my facebook page. For now, here are a few from before the show actually opened as well as a few from the next day to show the quick melting progess. More will come next week as things continue to change! There should also be a video or two and some time-lapse once the show is complete…

What a whirlwind this week has been! I finished installing the show just in time for Open Studios to begin Saturday and Sunday; had over 300 strangers come traipsing through my apartment, loving it or hating it, respectful or browsing through our personal belongings; cooked an insane amount of food for my reception Sunday evening (I am still eating my way through the leftovers!) and had several friends stop by to chat, check out the  work and deliver some gorgeous flowers; crashed early every night to try and catch up on lost sleep and recover from taxed people skills (thank god for Flour!  If it wasn’t for working there I’m not sure I would have the ability to tactfully deal with all of them!); got up as early as I could force myself Monday morning to take down the big piece and figure out how to transport and more importantly, translate the configuration; loaded it all (including the bed) into a Zipcar, drove to Warren, RI, just outside of Providence, reinstalled the whole thing with 2 foot higher ceilings, cleaned up the disaster we had made of the gallery, and drove back to Boston!!! Then it was back to the jobs Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with a trip BACK to RI, this time by commuter rail, for the opening reception Thursday night.  AND a 5am commuter rail back to Boston this morning to arrive in time to open the bakery.  All I can say is thank god for Kent, who was key in installing the Paper Jungle way back when, and for Zipcar, even though it cost me an arm and a leg…

Install 1

We were both on ladders for the full 4 hrs. of reinstallation

Install 2

We used trace paper on the ceiling to translate the exact locations of all the eye hooks

Install 3

And numbered each tooth individually to map out which belonged where in the composition

Install 4

Ellen Blomgren, the gallery owner, tested the view when we were done

Dearest friends Rachel and Nick, visiting from Providence, enjoyed the view together

I still have to share the “nicer“ photos I took of the piece when it was still in my apartment with ALL the lights turned off except the two illuminating the piece from below.  Those will come soon…

Open Studios Success!

November 4, 2009

I had over 300 visitors over the course of the weekend!  The building received over 700, but I imagine most people got lost and didn’t hit every studio or were scared by the room full of teeth and didn’t bother trying to come in.  Here’s what they missed:


My studio door: Old Arsenal work outside, New teeth work inside


Wall of real and fake teeth specimens

Teeth Book

Book of printed Teeth Stories

Teeth Wall

Wall of Teeth Stories

Overall View

And just for fun…

I also took a ton of photos of the big piece by itself in super dramatic lighting.  I will post those next…
