Brooklyn Open Studios project Pt II

Posted in Other Blackness on August 27, 2012 by drawingsubscription

So, we’re closing in on the Brooklyn-wide Open Studio weekend on Sept. 8 and 9. As I mentioned in my earlier post I think it’s an interesting premise as far as an institution getting behind the artists in their own backyard. Whether that translates all the way through to the crowdsourced exhibition or not, I can’t really say. Nevertheless, there are some incredible artists opening their studios to the public, so I hope people take advantage of this opportunity.

I’ll be around and looking for new and interesting conversations, so stop by and stare at some black with me.

Surface Disruption 08 has now made its way out of the studio to the 2012 subscribers!  This series is Toner on Vellum, folded with archival double-sided tape.  All works begin with an 8.5 x 11 inch page of perfect black space, which then succumbs to the weight of its own history, collapsing the purity of the monochrome surface.  (ed 12/12 pictured)
