virtual studio tour, December 2020

I was a little nervous about recording my studio tour for Bushwick Open Studios a couple weeks ago, but ended up really enjoying myself! Keeping the camera facing the artwork allowed me to simply focus on discussing what I was seeing, as if I was walking a friend through the studio. (In fact, I sort of was – friends and family were able to tune in virtually who do not live in NYC and wouldn’t have been able to attend an in-person event.)

This studio tour touches upon several key elements of my creative practice for the past year or so: intuitive composition, focus on repeated and overlapping patterns, and daily writing practice. This conversational way of moving through the studio felt helpful because it allowed me to point out connections between different processes as they arose: similar composition processes for paintings and drawings even though they look very different, looping line drawings which mirror cursive handwriting, etc.

The video tour, saved below, runs about eight minutes in length. I hope you enjoy!

Abstract Thoughts

Artist-curator Mel Reese included my drawing let there be warmth, let there be light in this edition of Art In Res’ Weekly Curation, Abstract Thoughts. She writes,

“The beauty… is in the imperfection, the moments when we can spot the hand of the artist in the perpetual loop.”

This drawing is available for sale via Art In Res, which allows you to pay in monthly installments if desired. I will contribute 50% of my proceeds from the sale of this piece to Brooklyn Defender Services.
