Chandler Fine Art: BLUE

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

From the curator: “Inspired by ‘Blue’, the first film in the three-colors trilogy by Krzysztof Kieslowski… Blue is the anti-tragedy, red the anti-romance and white the anti-comedy. Roger Ebert said of Kieslowski, ‘He is one of the filmmakers I would turn to for consolation if I learned I was dying or to laugh on finding out I would live after all.’”

This is a Group Show of Gallery Artists that runs November 8 – 30, 2011.

“Stuff Your Sorries in a Sack.”

Last year I participated in a wonderful show hosted by Art House Co-Op  http://www.arthousecoop.com/about (formerly in Atlanta Georgia, now in Brooklyn, New York). The show was called “Stuff Your Sorries in a Sack.” The directions to participating artists were to fill a little sack with anything “that you need to get off your chest” and once received, Art House would “put your sacks filled with your old baggage out in the open and let people experience what you have moved on from. As we didn’t receive the pieces back, it was indeed an exercise in letting go.I made a small accordion book filled with collage, found art, and handwritten text in Walnut Ink. The paper is French Larroque. Art House provided the burlap sack which I modified to fit the book, hand stitched a personal label with my initials, and tied with my studio’s signature red twine.

Last month I participated in a great show hosted by Art House Co-op called “The Sketchbook Project.” Art House asked artists all over the world to complete a small Moleskine sketchbook to the theme “Everyone we know…” The result was an amazing series of shows in Atlanta, D.C, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, and St. Louis that gave the audience an intimate viewing experience where they could handle and examine any of the sketchbooks… no gloves required. I instantly loved this format for it’s ability to break through the traditional sterility of the gallery experience. The viewer is encouraged to actually touch the art– what a concept! True, this format does not work well for most exhibits (most of my work would not respond well to handling unfortunately), but there’s nothing I like better than a well worn, worked, and yes, handled sketchbook. There is one show left if you happen to be in Chicago at Chicago Art Source Gallery on May 8 (through June 20th). Otherwise, you can check out photos from the events at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/arthousecoop/

Here are a few images of the book that I submitted:
