Ive been slaving away in the studio putting in some very long nights in order to get my show on the road. Its been a challenge to make work of the same scale in much smaller spaces. New York has nothing but small spaces and studios are no exception. Ill keep you posted when I have more
Earlier this week I assisted a collective called Artists Against the War in a screening. Its an artists collective run by Anne Messner ( who is also a lecturer at Pratt) and they have recently produced a three channel video projection which documents a timeline of events alongside protests and art production aimed at the war in Iraq. I mentioned to her that I would try and help her to get it screened in South Africa and she is very keen. If anyone is interested in doing/ organizing such an event let me know and Ill put you in touch. You can visit their website: www.aawnyc.org to see more information. They are releasing copies of the Dvd for distribution soon. They want to have the work screened as much as possible. And its worth seeing!
On a lighter note I saw some more exhibitions in Chelsea. One that stood out was by Guenter A. Werner at the Mike Weiss Gallery- worth a look on www.mikeweissgallery.com. Very simple clean and seductive work. Sculpture made of colour impregnated resin set in plates and the showstopper was the boat- Transport ’Äì made of polyurethane and epoxy resin paint. Its very big and very bright.
