Gone Wrong

And now, a shameless plug for my show at Real Art Ways in Hartford, Connecticut, which is up through November 29, 2012. Visually, my new work is rooted in the world nearby � specifically, the
idiosyncratic HVAC structures, cement-mixing machines, jerry-built
sheds, and improvised building additions that surround my Bushwick
studio. A minimalist sensibility resists serial rigor and jettisons the
notion that you can get everything right. For me, the most interesting
stories are about things gone wrong.

Stay tuned for details about 117G, a small artists book about Bushwick that I’m making to accompany the exhibition. It should be available in the Two Coats Bookshop before the end of October.
