2013 is wrapping up and the final installments of both Dark Continuum (The full-year drawing subscription) and Apparitions (The quarterly drawing subscription) are headed out to subscribers. It has been a particularly busy year on pretty much every front, but I’m very excited to have had the opportunities that were presented me this year, and look forward to the things that are falling in place for 2014.

Forbidden Knowledge the 2014 subscription is off to a great start, and interested parties have until December 31st to get on board. We’ll be shipping all across the country as well as Internationally during this fourth year, so Don’t miss out.

Forbidden Knowledge the 2014 Drawing Subscription

Robert Rauschenberg: Erased DeKooning Drawing

Robert Rauschenberg: Erased DeKooning Drawing, 1953

The Black Laboratory of Vincent Como is proud to reveal: Forbidden Knowledge the 2014 Drawing Subscription.

“The essential element in the black art of obscurantism is not that it wants to darken individual understanding, but that it wants to blacken our picture of the world, and darken our idea of existence.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Much like Rauschenberg’s infamous Erased DeKooning Drawing, the Forbidden Knowledge series will be based on the traces of what has been left behind once a material thought becomes eradicated, obscured, or reconsidered. Over the course of 2014 this series will see itself shifting in and out of focus to call into question what was, and what is yet to become. Like a scrying mirror, or a redacted CIA document, these works will be a way for the viewer to interface with the past while simultaneously divining the future.

Prepping for Year Four

Posted in 2014 with tags , , on September 6, 2013 by drawingsubscription

I’ve been doing some catch-up in the studio and will be back on top of documentation next week, but in the interim, November’s coming with or without us. That means the window will open for a new series in the Drawing Subscription family! We’re getting very excited for what’s in store. It will be a continuation on some of the themes we’ve already been working with like decay, transformation, memory and the ongoing reinterpretations of the Modernist canon.

Needless to say, we’re going to throw down like Anner Bylsma wailing on his axe:

Or a close approximation/reconsideration thereof:

and so forth…
