Hi. It's been awhile. I haven't made any new art in about a year. I was asked to participate in a show called Volumes 2 at my friend's new Gallery V, in Five Points. It was a last minute invitation, so I had to come up with something in about a week. My first thought was to stack books together and paint all over them. My second idea was to just paint the outside covers and hang those. I also thought about just painting on loose canvas pieces about the size of a book page, and sew them together in the edge like a book. I flipped open the inside of a book and I realized that's what I had to do. Use the interior of the book as my canvas and then hang the like paintings. I hope to make more of these soon... If you are in the Columbia, SC area, you should stop by Gallery V and see the show. There are 15 book artists. Gallery Zv is located at 631 D Harden St. in Fives Points above Good for the Sole Shoes. The show will be up through Oct. 18 and that Thursday we will be having a closing reception from 5-8pm.
