Headlands Center for the Arts
at Fort Mason Center, June 1
On June 1st I will be exhibiting Love, Inertia and the Pursuit of the Perfect Stance at Fort Mason Center for the Headlands Center for the Arts 2016 Benefit Auction. As I approach the completion of the piece, I am thrilled to be presenting the van in public for the first time in over a year. Check out my January blog post to see my progress in 2016! Stay tuned for upcoming performance dates in the Bay Area!
The auction is a ticketed event that benefits the incredible programs at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Purchase tickets and learn more about the event on the Headlands website below. I hope to see you there!
Art Escapists: Honey Tangle 2
I had the pleasure of hosting the Art Escapists at my Alameda studio in April. I took the opportunity to make a large process-based installation piece on the roof. In contrast to my usual approach, my goal was to work quickly and without a plan, no measurements or calculation, purely responding to the immediate environment and rolling with the punches. The product of the day's effort was a tangled web of golden day-glow cord, great for naps or taking in the view. The piece was inspired by a similar installation I did for Montalvo Arts Center's Art on the Grounds.
About the Art Escapists: "Contemporary artists making art in nature. While our concept is rooted in the tradition of plein air, our techniques are not."
2010, Wood, Steel and Cast iron
In 2010 I built Angler as part of a vehicle series that includes Air Ride Chair, Escape Vehicle, Toolbarrow,Lois Frost, Perch, and The Van. Each sculpture explores a specific function and movement dictated by the operator.
With a symbolic lightbulb overhead, Angler is both the hunter, luring in ideas and creativity as prey, and the obedient mule following a "carrot" on a stick. The operator sits nestled between wood-treaded tracks and has control of a worm gear driven by a hand winch that can cast out the "bait." Inquire for availability.
