Life skills and a work on paper...
The bird has learned to swim underwater whilst holding her breath. She's 2 keep in mind. We also made pancakes. Parenthood. Whoa.
Here's a new piece. Arches papier feels so good to make stuff on.
Do you like the Matta-Clark reference? It's the ol' "house devided."
I got re-stoked on Francis Alys after my lecture on performance via critique of post-capitalist, consumer present madness. I like his poetic approach to being political. Poetic and humble intelligent approaches. Gives me hope for political dialogue in a Sheperd Fairy, Fox News, in your face political yuck season. Obvious stuff and artist to like, but he had slipped out of art brain in the last year.
