Just a taste

Marfa, TX has treated me well, but unfortunately it’s time for me to leave. As a fair well to this wonderful place, I’ll be having an exhibition of the work I’ve been making here at the Masonic Lodge. Originally a Freemason’s lodge and temple this historic building is now owned by the superb folks over at Ballroom Marfa. Come check it out if you can! If not, check back here in a couple weeks for images from the show.

Be there or be an untitled work in mill aluminum.

Here's an overall view of my apartment/studio.

This series is titled "Teeterteeter" the piece on the far right has the subtitle "Hotternhot." They're made of painted matches, super-glue, and C-clamps.

Another series here. These are titled "Filler" salsa cans and florescent paper.
