New Textile Installation Series


New series I am working on.  These are plastic trays that hold syringes in labs.  They are not recyclable yet.  Recycle centers are still experimenting.  In the meantime I have found my own way to recycle them.  The first image shows an intern at Denver MCA (Museum of Contemporary Arts) working on an installation I am doing that will be 10'x50', this is only a small section, it will be in the museum for 1 year for their Teen Lab space.  The second image is a smaller piece, 4'x6', that I recently finished that we will be apart of a larger series of these textiles, scheduled to be completed in 2015.  These are just cell phone pictures . . . sometime I will post all the real pics!!

Denver Museum of Contemporary Art

This is an installation I did at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Arts (MCA) for their summer series of 'Mixed Taste'.  I was so honored to be hired for this project, the museum staff was a pleasure to work with!!  It will be up for the event through the end of August.  I had lots of fun with this project. I designed, fabricated, and installed . . . with of course the help of many wonderful volunteers!! It is all constructed out of zip ties.  These are just a few pictures I took with my phone . . . I will have professional pictures soon to share!! Thank you again to all my great volunteers!!

Back.

I have been M.I.A.  Setting up my new studio in Denver, but finally my head is above water.  Been working on lots of cool projects.  Just finished glueing down this piece that is for Katherine Sandoz.  She is a great painter and illustrator.  We are trading.  I look forward to having her work mixed into my eclectic mix of art and objects that flood my walls.  This piece is in progress, I will grout once the glue has cured.  I will be mixing my own grout color with pure powder pigment from Sinopia located in SF.  It makes the grout color mega vibrant.  Katherine's piece was composed over the last few weeks, I feel obligated to note that Gardens & Villa has been on non stop over here, Neon Dove and the Gypsy cover are insane.  They are even better live because his flute carrier is off the chain.

Featured on HGTV










































The Tree Collage got featured on an HGTV special for Jordan Spark's holiday home decor, which I also conceptualized and installed with Berkley Vallone. (I caught maybe 10 seconds of national air time)  The house collage was done for the Vallone Design Showroom in Scottsdale, AZ.  Very different from my mosaic art but fun to be able to do both.
