Two new pieces in progress. The first based off of Joan Crawford’s autobiography “My Way of LIfe”. The second is part of a series of paintings based off of fan/bad press photos of James Franco. More updates to come.
Been on a bit of hiatus from this blog, but more updates to come. I am starting some new pieces involving old hollywood celebrity autobiography, dogs, and death. Fun stuff! Will post related updates soon, but in the mean time I got a nice mention on Hyperallergic via my participation in Go Brooklyn. I haven’t been showing work much recently, so a shout-out is most appreciated and encouraging.
Revised a problematic piece that’s been sitting around for a while. “I wasn’t alive but I remember”. Mixed Media on Panel. 2012.
Also I will be participating in the Northside Art Festival Open Studios this Sunday. Come visit my Greenpoint studio in person and say hello! If you get there early, I may even kitsch it up and serve some Marilyn wine.
My roommate and dear friend Sarah Tricker directed a fantastic new video for the hip hop artist Rocco Katastrophe that was released this week. The video is gorgeous, and a good chunk of the video was filmed in my apartment. My painting “Spoiler Alert II: Marissa Dies” makes a few nice cameos. I the nice media-circle of a painting inspired by a TV show being in a music video on the internet…and hopefully the TV. Be sure to check out the video, it’s beautiful.
I’ve been a bit M.I.A. (or inaction) over at this blog. I’m working on a new direction with my work..but at gradual pace. In the meantime, I am working on a new side project tumblr, James Franco and Me. It’s kind of ridiculous, but I think it will be kind of awesome. It’s a neurotic blend of social interaction, celebrity commentary, with some awkward, silly, and over analysis. and drawings. I encourage you to check it out. Here’s a few drawings from the first posts.
