I broke down my studio today in preparation for moving. It was amazing how much junk was in that room.. interesting junk, for sure, but there is only so much room in the moving truck. Among the oddities that I took to the dump: one waveform vectorscope monitor (broken), one S-VHS deck (broken), one G1 iMac (broken), and two color tubes from a broken large-screen TV. I had hopes of fixing these, or at least scrapping them for parts, but that job will have to fall on someone else. If that person is you then hurry up and get over to the Rockport dump!
Here is a photo of my empty studio (cow skull added for effect):
I mentioned in the last post that I would write about the Henry Darger exhibit at the American Folk Art Museum in New York, so here goes: Go see the henry Darger exhibit at the American Folk Art Museum in New York. Seriously, it was fantastic. Seeing Darger’s work in person is amazing, a little creepy, but amazing. The man certainly had an extraordinary imagination, but troubling obsessions.
Some highlights of the exhibit for me were Robyn O’Neil’s These Moving Bodies, These Dumb Processions:
and Anthony Goicolea’s Fleeing:
There were many other extraordinary works in the show, but I won’t post any more in the hopes that you will go out and see them for yourself!
Dargerism: Contemporary Artists and Henry Darger will be on display until September 21.
