Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 10.46.38 PMI just want to shout out a big thank you to – the obviously visionary – Benjamin Sutton of -the clearly great- Artnet news for including me in their BOS short list: an Insiders Guide to Bushwick Open Studios. In which my letterforms are compared to the word paintings of Wayne White.

This is a fair comparison that I am happy to agree with. It is not the first time I’ve heard it but the first time it’s been so public and – full disclosure – my MFA thesis paper for Pratt Institute compared treatments of forms, letter or otherwise in te works of White, Ruscha, and de Chirico.

Thanks to all of you awesome people who made it out to Bushwick open studios this past weekend. It was the first one in my new studio and the turnout was amazing; I’m sure Artnet’s nod didn’t hurt. πŸ™‚

Well, I’m off to prepare for a return residency at the Contemporary Arts Center at Woodside.

See you soon!
