Summer in the Studio

Posted on June 24, 2016

I've got so much going on in the studio right now! I think it's going to merge into something that combines all the elements I am experimenting with but in the meantime, there's a definite sense of adventure and exploration. I'm craving the "hand of the artist" over the "perfection" (nothing is really perfect) of the glitter surface. I wish there were three of me right now so that I could see more finished product and continue in the direction I want to go, but in the meantime, I've got a little bit of this...and more.

Mixing it Up

Posted on April 29, 2016

Img_2272I love my glitter. It's never just about the shiny but the color and light shifts as you move around a piece. However, I do love the pure form of painting and return to it frequently, whether it's small studies on paper or bigger pieces on canvas.

 

Leap Before You Look

Posted on March 04, 2016

The Hammer's Leap Before You Look: Black Mountain College 1933–1957 (organized by The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and curated by Helen Molesworth, chief curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles), is SO GOOD! I've seen it twice. It's one of those shows where you aren't sure that you saw everything the first time and, sure enough, I hadn't seen everything. Img_0910

My pieces at in the Shimmer show at Jamie Brooks Fine Art in Costa Mesa, curated by Eric Minh Swenson. Beautiful show (I'm not biased) and it's up until March 26th, 2016. Here I am with my sister in front of my wall of "littles". That's me, wearing the poofiest skirt ever. Ego out the window when you look like a cranberry elephant.

The Big Move

While we were doing this in Agoura Hills:

 

Brad was already in my old space with a vacuum:

After a litte traffic snarl on the 405, the truck made its journey from Agoura Hills to Inglewood and all this was quickly unloaded and set up:

It's time to work!

Just Another Piece in the Studio

Posted on October 12, 2014

I was just checking emails and I had an Artsy email: Kelly, new for you: Mary Corse from Frieze London. I click and here is this image of a piece that is currently at Frieze London at the Lehmann Maupin booth. It seems like it JUST LEFT the studio! I've watched this piece from start to finish, just another piece in progress lining the walls of the studio, with that blue splashed all over the bathroom from brush cleanings, and then here it is--a bright, professional image of it...in London. There is a sort of intimate familiarity and a strange disconnect, like the funny schoolmate who you now are watching on big screen from a seat in a theater. It was nice watching you grow up, Untitled (Black and White with Blue Outer Bands, Beveled), 2014.
