Studio Scapes

"Hoo,boy!," as my grandfather used to say. It's been a looooonnnng time since you've heard from me. Well, anyway... I've been featured as one of the studio scapes on Seth Apter's blog, The Altered Page. 

Go here to see his post and a photo of my work table - if you can stand looking at the mess, that is. Only joking (though it really is almost always a mess). With Seth's usual genius for projects that fascinate, you can see many other artists' work environments. And many of them make me turn green with envy.

Really, really, I will post some interesting stuff soon.
In the mean time, Happy Holidays to all.

Just to let you all know that I haven't forgotten about you, my dear, kind readers. Here is a little something to make you smile. Couldn't resist - especially because the music is my favorite Leonard Cohen song.

And stay tuned because I will be posting soon with lots of news and pics.

I'm published!!!

I'm published in an article in the May/June issue of Cloth Paper Scissors!!! The magazine published a feature article about the Disintegration Collaboration project that Seth Apter of the The Altered Page invented and that I participated in last year. You can find me on page 45. CPS chose several participating artists' work to illustrate Seth's article and every piece is just gorgeous. It's a beautiful article and I recommend you check it out.I am honored to be included in this article in my favorite magazine and also to be featured along side such wonderful artists.

Cloth Paper Scissors also has a feature on its website where you can make your own DisCo piece and upload your photos. Check it out here. It was such a rewarding thing to participate in this and you can't go wrong to give it a whirl.

Secret Sunday

Yes, yes. I know. It's a looooong story,

In the mean time, Seth Apter of The Altered Page, has begun the 4th edition of his zine, The Pulse. Over 200 artists are contribution their answers to a series of questions about their work, processes, and artistic lives. Every Sunday he has been publishing some of their secrets in entries he calls, "Secret Sundays." Yesterday he published one one of my secrets for art making resources: used books for their pages and for making altered books which I got from a branch of my local library.
So here are some of the books I found at my library on my last visit - hardcovers 50cents, soft covers 25cents: The book in Hebrew is A Little Town in Germany, by LeCarre, The Macbeth (the little volume all the way to the right) is not only notable for being published in 1889 with a signature of the owner dated 1890, the title on the spine was erroneously printed upside down. the little book at the top of the stack is Hamlet. The Fearful Passage (to the left of Macbeth) was published the year I was born.

Yesterday was Secret Sunday #5, check out more artists, their secrets from the first Secret Sunday and The Pulse at thealteredpage

P.S. I haven't forgotten my promise of a giveaway. It is coming and better late than never.
P.P.S. Best wishes for very Happy Holidays to all.

A Book About Death the movie

This fantastic youtube video was made by Angella Ferrara with music by Garry Schyman – Praan. An abbreviated exhibit was shown at the Queens Museum of Art 11/1. The entire exhibit will be traveling the country (and maybe the world). And next year there will be a new one. Of course I will make a new piece for that one. I am impressed at how moving every viewer finds the art. Check out the blog for A Book About Death for all the credits for the video and the lyrics including English translation. Lovely.

A Book About Death

OK, I did it. I accomplished Goal #2 which was to make a piece for A Book About Death. If you remember, this group show is the brain child of Matthew Rose, a collage artist and writer living in Paris Each artist has to send their piece to The Emily Harvey Foundation Gallery, NYC in the form of 500 postcards. See my postcard, front and back above. The opening of the show is 9/10/09 from 7:30 - 11:pm. The show runs through 9/22. Everyone who visits is free to take postcards from each of the artists.
Here is a link to the blog about the show

And here is a link to the gallery
As of this posting, there are a total of 356 artists participating. I think the hope was for 1,000 artists. Maybe they will still make it. Perhaps not all the artists who are submitting work have sent their work to the blog? Anyway, do check out the blog. There is some really great art there.
