With December’s drawings sent and in-hand for subscribers, Surface Disruption has been completed. In the studio we are currently focusing and organizing to have both Dark Continuum and Apparitions all set for Jan 2013. It is quite exciting, as the first year to offer two different subscriptions, and we’ll see how things evolve. Big thanks to the 2012 subscribers, and a big thanks to those jumping in for 2013. You won’t be disappointed.

The News at Halftime

So here we are closing out July and entering the brutality that is August in New York. Hopefully, it will spare us just a bit of its crushing oppression since July really came in with a vengeance. Anyway, this means we’re halfway through (well, just a bit more than) with Surface Disruption, the 2012 Drawing subscription. We’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback both from subscribers and general fans of the project alike. It’s been quite the hit, and we’re very pleased about that, so thanks very much to all for supporting this work.

Uncharacteristically, this summer has been very busy at the studio in anticipation of several new projects coming up this next season. Usually the summer tends to quiet down a bit and we regroup, strategizing for the next season and catch up with friends drinking lots of beer from rooftops and backyards to the refreshing AC of our favorite watering holes. This particular summer, however, is demanding a bit more of us. Some exhibitions are being discussed, as are some new editioned projects with various parties spanning the local, national and even international spectrum. There will be more on all of these individually as dates solidify and the production schedules fall in to place. But for now, know that it’s been non-stop, and we’re working toward some very exciting things.

Right now, we’re making some room to focus on preparations for next year’s Drawing Subscription which will follow the same notions of presence and absence, space, surface and purity as the previous two subscriptions have. So if you are wondering: “Why are we talking about this so early, subscriptions won’t open up until November again, right?”. It’s because of two things; First, we like to be prepared. Simple as that. An artist’s public opportunities can be in discussion for many months (even upwards of 2 years out), and then all of a sudden manifest and fall into place due to a shifting schedule or to piggyback off of another opportunity. We like to be able to take advantage of those moments as best we can, and the best way to do so is to know what you are doing and to be well enough organized to pull it together. Second, we’re working on a more aggressive marketing strategy for next year’s Subscription, so by fleshing it out now we can get all of our materials together and in the hands of interested parties so they can then anticipate the opening of the November floodgates for the 2013 sign up. We certainly hope to have many of you along for the ride next year and beyond as the studio continues to evolve and grow. Naturally, consuming everything in its wake.

In keeping with the notion that the Drawing Subscriptions function as studies for other projects not yet realized within the studio, and that they build on this notion in succession every month, take a moment to enjoy this piece of La Monte Young’s from 1969 titled Drift Study. Perhaps a precursor to the 2013 series, or something of a missing link bridging the two series’. Only time will tell…
