Diane Keys: DeConstruction / ReConstruction

Just got back from Diane Keys new show at the Elgin Museum of Modern Art (EMOMA). Wild stuff. I was surprised to see my name in the Catalogue:

Keys continues to burrow into the layer of duff on the urban floor, a sediment rich with meaning "para aquellos con los ojos." (Trans.: For those with the prescience to find the vision of seeing…

The International Day of The Banana is now in the rear view mirror but even though I didn't enter the mail art call I did receive some entries including a Banana Surprise from Stripgoose who has never sent me anything before. Surprise! Thank you,…

Jones, Foster, Jones Bz, Lisa & Jimenez

A very cool intro to the work of Frank B. Jones. Reminiscent of the early work of Larry Poons, this kinetic swarm of dancing colors looks as though it was handpainted by Mr. Jones. Quite a feat. Really amazing, Frank. Thank you.…

Starr, Cope, Keys, Wendell-Mojica and Petal, Attorneys at Law

An envelope stuffed with goodies from Alicia Starr Ryan. The Widow Jane. (Not getting the reference but it doesn't matter. The picture is conjure-worthy). Love that sneer. The gun is fake as is the anger but I wouldn't mess with her either way. (Don't you love the way women in movies are never far from their lipstick, even while sleeping or tubbing.) Also a…

Grecian Earns… Big Bucks

Received this week...from Katerina, a Christmas Card and one of the new patterns from the Nikoltsou Collection premiering in Milan this Spring.
