Oh my, this year so far has morphed into so much richness. I’ve been letting my video practice simmer a bit, still practice street photography every week (you can see my street photography on Instagram and link directly to it by going to the bottom of the home page of my website, finding the most recent photo and clicking on it), and read a lot about current events. But what is really consuming me is an intense dive back into a world that I can touch – I have taken up acoustic guitar (inspired by the music of Elliott Smith), and am working in papier-mâché. The former I have never played (though I learned piano and can read music), and the latter I probably haven’t done since I was like… 10?
Anyway, posting some pics of my papier-mâché adventures below – I created a gigantic mask and then went with fellow artist Thomas Cox, who also created a mask, to the October Artists’ Reception at LACDA for fun to show them off. The second object is a papier-mâché armature of a preening dove for an Xmas tree ornament that I’m currently working.
