Ive recently moved from the eastern shore of Maryland to Baltimore city. And while this is an exciting change for my career, it comes also with an adequate amount of stress and questioning of my goals, priorities, and general purpose in life... but never mind that. For the first time in my life post-undergrad, I have a studio space that isn't fragile. Although I am still living in a rental, I have a basement this time! It is very likely filled with lead paint and other potentially life-threatening invisible chemicals but I won't have to face the consequences of that for at least another 20 years. The point is that it's a basement! I can spill paint on the floor and not worry about a security deposit, life is good. Here are some pics.
Idiosyncrasies was the best title me and Julianne could agree upon when trying to name our exhibition because the main reason we wanted to show together was from a mutual love of the other's work and process. As studio partners for two years, Julianne and I influenced each other's thoughts greatly; her sense of color, movement and flow (in art and in her personal life) were ever inspiring. Although not immediately apparent, we felt that our discourse affected the other's aesthetic so we selected work from our most recent collections that we mutually appreciated - almost like a dually curated show. Here are some photos of the final install, as well as some process shots. You can find Julianne here www.juliannedurkin.com
It's thanksgiving morning and i'm sitting here alone in my apartment writing this while on skype with my family at home. Its 1:00pm and they're all drunk. My great aunt just said "Well! I just keep sippin' on this wine, i'm not shakin' but I feel pretty good!" Regardless, I'm migrating my website to a new platform that better suits the excessive menus I need to categorize my work. Following this post will be a mass post of previous updates from old platforms. This is a semi-pointless post unless you care about the logistics of website hosting, but thanks for stopping by!
