In 2004 I created the first iteration of Things In My Studio That Make Black. It was a big hit and really opened up the practice of the studio by becoming a window into the other series’ and projects I’d been working on, or was gearing up to start, through cataloging the various materials on-hand that were to be used in other works. In 2007 I revisited the idea with a second version, this time approaching the format through small independent pages for each different medium. Some were the same, standards if you will, that are always on hand in the studio, while others were new media that I was trying out for different projects.

In many ways, the Drawing Subscriptions are meant to function in a similar capacity. To become a window into the thinking process in the studio through a series of monthly drawings.  The drawings then, work out other ideas and aspects of production within the studio.

In wanting to revisit this type of framing for the studio practice, the full-year subscription for 2013 is meant to be that link. The Dark Continuum which pushes forward into the future of the studio’s practice, while acknowledging where we’ve already been and the foundation which has been laid. Get on board, and watch it unfold for yourself!
