(My apologies to those of you in Seattle for being slow to post this announcement!) This last Friday, May 20th, a show opened at Gage Academy in honor of the publication of Margaret Davidson’s new book, Contemporary Drawing: Key Concepts and Techniques. The exhibition includes some of the artists whose work appears in the book, and is called Contemporary Drawing in the Northwest. I’m very honored to have a piece included in the book and a few pieces hanging in the exhibition. The show is up until June 11th.
Here stands my first publicly revealed animation! Brooklyn-based musician and constant collaborator* Roberto Carlos Lange puts music out with Asthmatic Kitty Records as Helado Negro. His latest album, Canta Lechuza, is suffused with watery ripples and whispers, and roughed up properly with electronic honks and deep grooves. It was an honor to work with Roberto’s music, and always a testament to the strength of the fabric when I still want to listen to it after the type of repetition that comes with the territory of animation. This little piece, Obra Uno, leads into the next track on the album in a gorgeous way. I gave the double-song a try, but in the end, this part of the animation was the most complete and here stands alone. Click the link above to hear the song within the context of the album.
*check out another one of Roberto’s latest collaborations out here— beautiful!
