I’ve been working my way through old seasons of The Office in the studio, and there are so many episodes I’ve never seen. I like to put them on and listen while I’m working on other things. I heard Dwight say this while I was making this, and I laughed.
I’ve been dying to show these giant drawings in public. So, when I saw the call for entry, I jumped in with… both feet!
Two Feet and More is a show at the Towson Art Collective of works 2′ and larger. It seemed doubly fitting that my work is larger than 2′, and is of 2 feet!
This is quality Dad humor, folks.
Each is approximately 3′ x 3′.
P.S. I was told this is “funny sexy.”
I saw a call for entry at nefarious contemporary in Baltimore on Instagram:
Our February exhibition is now open for entries! BO/DY was thought up as I and many of my beloved friends have experienced extreme body trauma and abuse in our lifetimes. The body is something we shame, we neglect, we criticize, we oh-too-closely compare to other bodies. In a time of revolution, such as the one we find ourselves in the midst of, the body is starting to receive more love than it has in a long, long time. And we want to celebrate that. This exhibition will open on St Valentine’s Day and serve as an online and zine exhibition. Which means that each applicant, regardless of their acceptance, will receive a complimentary zine once it’s published. Tag some of your favorite artists below working within themes of body to let them know they should apply! And feel free to shoot us over any q’s you may have!
This exhibition is US only due to funding restrictions.
My girlfriend and I were experimenting with cyanotypes, and I made this.
As a kid, I was always self conscious of my weird, awkward ehlers–danlos syndrome-ish body, especially my feet. Well, NO LONGER! I learned to….
18″ x 14″
Cyanotype on cotton fabric with acrylic paint and embroidery.
Probably my favorite 3D scan, I present the Sidekick! I sculpted this character, made a mold and then scanned it. I can print them in brass, silver and various plastics and in various sizes.
I have one red prototype for sale – 2.5″ x 1″ high, with silver nails. If you’d like it, send $45 and your address (US only, please – if outside the US, please contact me email@example.com).
I plan to print more of these, including pairs, for the shop. If you’d like one, please email me.
This last one has gold stars I found on the sidewalk at work.
Many artists have difficulty drawing feet. Practice makes perfect, and on the heels (get it?) of completing my new drawing tables, I thought I’d dip a toe into that pool and have some fun with Tyvek, fishnets and feet.
I finally cut this scroll off after 8-10 pairs of feet (I don’t remember).
Next, I thought I try some toes.
I like the complexity of the fishnets, and the shape of the soles.
I am really happy with the way this one turned out:
Oh, and while I was at it, I thought I should do a sandal – this one is made by Bernardo, a classic.
I will keep working on these, because there are just so many other foot related puns to share…it’s just so good for the sole.
