Updated Photos and Videos

Bike Knit 1

Film Still from “Knit Knit”, a collaborative performance video with NipNip Zine, Cincinnati, OH. 2014.

Thanks so much for your patience during the time I was unable to update; the last few weeks were very busy with my own work and collaboration!  As of this moment, all videos and photos have been updated.  I’ve taken some time today to add photos to both the Sculpture tab and the Performance tab, which is most thrilling to me (as it’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to do a performative work!).

So, please take some time to look through those tabs, along with view the videos I’ve recently posted.  The first, you’ll find at http://vimeo.com/93627077.  This video is a collaborative work between myself and NipNip Zine, entitled, “Knit Knit”.  During this work I used my handmade 5ft long, steel knitting needles to knit and manipulate bike chain, along with various other forms of chain.  The video was just recently shown at Coffee Emporium, located in Downtown Cincinnati.

Other videos were added by viewers of my work!  Please take a look at Garry Glenn’s short snippets of my performance with the work entitled, “Hand-Wrought”.  There are four videos, and this is the link to the first: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1tTOb2ul2A

Thank you again to all who continued to follow!  The blog has just reached 50 followers; although the number is small, I’m happy to see people are continuing to follow and show their support for my practice.  I hope to post more photos soon from the list of events I’ve set up for the next couple months before I relocate to Detroit, so please keep a look out.

Commission Opportunity

20140224-233726.jpg

Recently I was asked by fellow artist, Katy Tompkins, to aid in making work for her upcoming show in March. Having known Katy for two years now I have had many work opportunities with her up to this point, but none to this degree. I was thrilled to be offered and accept the opportunity to say the least!

In the photo above you see a sample of the work I have finished thus far. I’d like to save further images until the final works are complete. The job she assigned me was to turn her idea into a reality. She asked if I could locate the materials needed, and begin covering the legs and seats of these vintage bar stools with various materials, but focusing on nylon fishnet stockings. There are going to be three of these stools, and they will be featured in her upcoming show. Once final photos are posted I will share the date, time, and location of this opening.

Thank you for taking the time to follow my artistic processes and jobs. If interested in following more closely, look to my Instagram: artistinspired0217
