I’ve just added some photos from Art Chicago to the main part of the site
(please go to PHOTOS and look under Art Chicago April 30-May 3, 2010).
Andreas and Kevin from Aureus Contemporary along with their installation
specialist Christopher Faiss did a maximum job in hanging a great show at
the booth. As I was looking forward to seeing, it was so satisfying that Karim‘s
paintings and my sculptures interacted so nicely. Here are some for you to see.
Please go to the main site for the complete set and the enlarged versions.
It’s been fun and exciting exchanging emails with people at Aureus Contemporary
for the past weeks setting up details for Art Chicago. It all started when I spotted
really nice paintings by Karim Hamid at BOOOOOOOM. I was taken by them
enough to contact the artist to tell him how much I enjoyed. Karim kindly invited
me to come see them in person at one of the art fairs in NYC last month. I checked
out some of his latest pieces there and we enjoyed chatting.One of Karim’s paintings
Shortly after that, I got an email from the director of Aureus Contemporary,
Andreas Kuefer, asking me to team up for Art Chicago next month. So there we go.
Aureus Contemporary will have a 850 sf booth and it’ll put emphasis on three
artists, Karim Hamid, Sara Carter, and myself. There will be six pieces of mine on
view. And you get to see more from Karim also.
Here is some info about Art Chicago taken from its site:
A few years ago I had a great experience in working with people at the
Swarthmore College, PA for their gallery show. At the opening I met one of the
art professors, Michael Cothren, who was working on a college art text book
called “ART A Brief History”. He was very generous in complimenting my work
and I had a lot of fun talking to him. A few weeks later, he emailed me saying that
he was thinking about putting my work in the upcoming edition of the text book.
Of course I didn’t have any problem with it…An image from the Swarthmore College show. The full photo set can be seen at “PHOTOS” at the main part of the site.
So I’ve been wondering if that will actually happen. And last week, the book
came in the mail. In it, I do see a picture of my work and very nice descriptions of
the work by professor Cothren.Amazon‘s got it.
It’s really exciting to reach out to people learning about art and to take
a part in more fun in their lives. As I wrote a few month ago, I myself
got into art through community college education.
Well, I know, it’s sort of weird and surreal. Last time I felt like this
was when my wife decided to go out with me ten years ago. I was like,
“wow, cute woman like that actually wants to be with me?”. Good
things do actually happen sometimes.
Images from Salomon Contemporary Warehouse exhibition (East Hampton, NY)
which ran from Oct. 11 to Nov. 30, 2009, have been added to the site. The set has
total of 28 images and it comes in two parts. To see them, go to
the main part of the site and click “PHOTOS”. Hope you enjoy! Here are a few of
them from the set. You can see bigger pictures at the site.
Ten years after moving to East Hampton, I am about to have my first solo
show in the area. My connection to East Hampton is merely coincidental.
I invited myself over to live with my then girl friend (now my wife), a writer,
Evan Harris, in 1999. We met at one of the artist residencies (McDowell
Colony) in 1998. After the residency was over, Evan decided to move
back to her home town, which was East Hampton, from New York City.
I moved from Union City, New Jersey where I lived in one of the sweat
shop buildings illegally (oh, the good old days…).
Ten years can be a while. We now live in a semi-country setting with
two dogs and a vegetable garden. We have produced two small children
(five and three year old boys). And we have made many friends in the
area. This is our home that I feel to belong. So having a show here is a
very special event.
The show will be at Salomon Contemporary Warehouse. The opening
is on Sunday 11 October 2009, 4 to 7 PM. The show will be up though
Sunday 15 November. The gallery is open Saturday and Sunday noon to 4 and
