Don’t bleed so loud, I can’t hear the TV

Artist Reception: 6-9 PM

artist statement:

Shadows are revealed in my paintings through humorous abstract narratives, featuring pop culture symbolisms of femininity. In “Dear Jimmy America”, a darkly intimate poem is paired with a comically painterly bra, while “The Great Mother Tit of America” depicts a red-and-white-striped breast lactating ice cream.

In “fun fair i-iii” I explore subtle emotive energies through gestural expressions of vibrant color. Triangular and pentagonal pieces of wood are painted with quick, intuitive movements of wrist and finger. Impressions of vegetal and organic forms emerge, but, like clouds, patterns continue to shift, leaving definition open to viewers’ imaginations.

New piano in Room 1 gettin tuned by Fenton Murray next month. Thanks to master picker and slider Charlie Wallace for those keys and Wooster’s own Brian Gallagher for helping us move them. It’s gotta acclimate in there for a month. Fenton’s got some sick B-3 Hammond type stuff for sale on the bulletin board. You’d be hard pressed to find better old school Hammond know-how than Fenton. New drums in there too on perm loan from Jeff Fabb while he’s on the road w/ the Durbinator and Filter. Thank you Jeff you fuckin Long Island guy…
