THE ORIGINAL DECAPITATOR?

Sure, UK's The Decpitator is cool I know, but for the record, I was doing this stuff years ago. Perhaps not as socially poignant as his work but here's a couple old collages I came across the other day in a sketchbook from 1995.























We even blew a bunch up really large for a Halloween party years ago!! Not the girl smiling - the one in the background :)

OCCASSIONAL THOUGHT

Style is for fans and collectors, ideas and execution are for critics and Museums.

METRO-KOCH

Here is my submission for the Metro Card Show at Sloan Fine Art opening March 18th. It's and acrylic painting on a metro card.

Title: "Ladies and Gentle Mr. Ed Koch on the New York City Subway System"















Now here is my question about this...

Looking at so many of the other submissions (every one that I have seen so far here http://singlefare.blogspot.com/ ) the artists have compleltley painted all over the metro card. Shouldn't part of the card show through? So you know it's a Metrocard? Otherwise you could paint anything in that shape. I just thought that was odd that so many people did it that way.

OPENING NEXT WEEK


I'll post my submission next week which I have a question about....

OCCASSIONAL THOUGHT

I would never want to make a lovely piece of art that someone could gaze at for hours. I would rather make a shocking piece of art that someone struggles to look away from.

INLE PIECE

Upon arriving back from Zurich, which holds one of the worlds largest graphics poster collection at the Museum of Design Zurich, I was dying to do a piece of art based on the Dada art movement of the 1930's. I thought I would try it out for the INLE show based on the Watership Down novel's Anti Hero, Black Rabbit of Inle. It's different from my other work but I felt it translated in relating my feelings about Graffiti and how, in a sense, it has been the Black Rabbit of the art world as of late.
Here's the piece. It's a printed collage and acrylic paint (the rabbit and motorcylce)

IN(OR OUT)LE

I think I am supposed to be part of this INLE show - I was accepted into it, but I was never on any of the email lists or listed as one of the artists.

Still, I did sent them a piece for it (albeit a rather offensive atypical one) so I am not sure if it will wind up in the show or not, but regardless it should be a cool exhibit to check out at Gallery 1988 whether my submission winds up on the wall or not.
