The Cheese Stands Alone
 
Here are a few pics from the installation and opening reception of a solo show of my latest works. 27 pieces, all plastic and paint on canvas, and all wall hung like paintings. Had a pretty good turn out. Glad it is all over. Exhausted.

Fine looking show, spare and very elegant. But...plastic and paint? C'mon, cheespaws, I know gorgonzola when I see it. No wonder you're exhausted. You must have been running around frantically trying to keep the viewers from eating the art.:)

How come they're mostly not lookin' at the art? Oh yeah, because it's really a wine with Cheese party.

Cheese is that you in the grid paper lookin shirt next to the sandanista rebel chick? That'd be my edumacated guess.

Congrats on a job well done, it's simple, clean and nice.

Grommet, everyone know's only artists look at the work and the rest of em just go there to be seen. :)

Thanks to all for the kind words. Oddly - no cheese at this opening (ironic?). I did buy some of those orange cheesy/peanut butter crackers (Toe-cheeze) for the gallery - but I think they chickened out.

Very cool. I, too, want to get in for a closer look.

Have you heard of the Gigapan? One of the artists in my building just picked one up, and photographed another artist's exhibition (with permission):

Your work would work really well with that. Where's the show?

Cheesepaws,

I'm a little late on this, but these are the sort of works that deserve a second/third/fourth look.
Some really innovative, well-crafted pieces.

Most of these examples you shared remind me of strategic satellite imaging/mapping carried out by the military.

Re: The Cheese Stands Alone
 
Thanks for the kind words O.

In these works I was thinking a lot about landscape/structure relationships so your reference to strategic satellite imaging/mapping is dead on.

Cool!! I had a professional shoot the show and I am expecting to get the image disc in the mail today. Ran me $300 - which is reasonable - but I have never used this guy before. He comes highly recommended but you never know.

I really like that word Gigapan....Gigapan...Gigapan...Gigapan.

Yeah, Cheese...where is it...some of us have NYC access passes.

So you'd rather us see online pics of your show than see it in person?
Sorry dude but that's weak. And as a juror of others' shows, that makes it even worse.

I hope you are just kidding....

If not........Get some stones!

If so, address please.......... Thanks Sub

My guess is Sheboyggan, Michigan.

Although it may be a bit too subtle for my tastes, I too like the one with the pile of war toys atop the cloud of destruction.

Hey! Leave my (cheese)balls out of it!

I know that this has been discussed at length before - some of us have reasons for not wanting our actual names being linked to this forum (and our posts) through a simple google search. My own motivation for lying low has something to do with some angry Bolivian art dealers Ė but I canít go into details.

I just got some new photos of the show - I will post a few more shots of individual works soon.

Fromage,

Are you in trouble with the Bolivians for imported llama cheese?

SShhhhhhhhh....keep your voice down.

Since you asked....you lookin' to score a little "Llama Limburger"?

If so knock twice and ask for El Quesopatos.

As promised - a few more images.

I think I overpaid my photographer!

Goodonya fella! Whether you are there or not doesn't matter. Who gives a flying ..... Though if you had turned up in a mask ala TISM (a vastly underrated great aussie band) that would have been impressive. Anonimity and publicity in one!

That's cool Cheese, I was just a little kid during Vietnam, but I sat on my dad's lap and watched it on T.V. every night and we used to take our models and G.I. Joe's and set them up in the dirt and make big battles and torchem with gasoline simulating napalm air strikes. Looked just like these except they all had dirt on em. :)

Re: The Cheese Stands Alone
 
When we were in jr. high a friend and I used to take the model cars I built and burn them. We then buried the remains in the narrow space between his appartment building and the next one. We may have exhumed one or two a year later to note if any significant decomposition or other interesting effects had occurred. (short answer, no. But it did bring back the memory of the event) Also as a pre-teen I tried exhuming the Lake Michigan crayfish erstwhile pet I buried in the backyard, but could not relocate him. The honey suckle bushes must have already processed him into flowers.

I suppose the model car graveyard still remains intact today, visited only by earthworms and roots.

Those are the long forgotten memories stirred up by the model car pieces.
