Re: group show

Congratulations. It is nice to get displayed in a New York gallery, although it is not NYC.

Re: group show

Right Merlion, missed it by 40 miles - But NYC has never been able to keep me away for long. Funny thing about that art scene, theres room for everyone and no one... simultaneously.

These are the two larger ones I'll be showing. 9 and 7 foot respectively. They'll be inside too.

Re: group show

Awesome ! Good luck and sell, sell, sell ! I like these pieces and find myself leaning towards some abstract forms. Only thing is.... HOW DO YOU MOVE THESE HEAVY BOOGERS? Man you really break your back for your exhibits. Wayne

Re: group show

Just me and the f-350. Sometimes I bring along a little tripod crane to get things outta the truck. Moving them can be harder than making them...but the satisfaction comes from seeing them in a new place, a proper place, a place where they can be appreciated (and maybe purchased).

You goin' abstract Wayne? You'd be a natural with your reduced sense of composition, the way you can put things together and get something fresh practically just by leaning them together. Wish I could do that. The steel never seems to want to go where I want it to...so I have to force it.

Re: group show

I just see forms within forms or start seeing things as pieces to a big puzzle that needs the rest of it "found" and put together. Sometimes it is a critter sometimes it is not. Sometimes it goes back on the pile! I've got one more trip to the Huson valley to tow a car back up here and finish cleaning out the In-laws house (tomorrow)...then I can get back to life as it was (cept the in-laws will be 12 miles away instead of 312) Can't wait to get busy....Wish I had time to jump down to NR ... ain't happening tho, damnit. Wish me a safe trip . TI

Re: group show

Yes Arcdawg, that NYC scene eats artists for breakfast. Takes all their money, degrades them, forces them to live like dogs, and sends them packing, demoralized and ready to go home and get a job. I've been chewed up and spit out several times over the past sixteen years there. The problem, though, with gobbling down your food too fast is that I might not sit right...come back up on you. I keep being regurgitated. And I'm coming back for more.

Re: group show

evaldart,

Like those two pieces. The one I take to be the 9 foot especially. It has a sense of being in balance, but barely...a nice feeling of almost being out of sync.

I like your pragmatic approach to the NY scene. I think that persistence must be part of the answer. Those that give up too soon might have finally broken in if they had stayed...who knows. I know the bios I read of the more successful artists in recent years...very few have been "instant darlings"..more were those who paid their dues and climbed the ladder.

Congrats.

Re: group show

There are no instant darlings in Nashville or Hollywood either. Persistence is key to any and all human endevour and failure is far more common than success and naturally so. All that really matters is that "two stood against many".

Installed the work today. Me and the f-350. Piece of cake. Nice gallery, 20 foot ceilings, concrete floors, very sculpture friendly... Drove the truck RIGHT INSIDE to where it would be hoisted off. Nice.

Re: group show

Hi Evaldart, Isn't that sweet! ALL galleries should be that sculpture friendly.
good luck with the show.
You've gotta get the work out there, then you've gotta get the work out there AND then you've gotta get the work out there.
Eventually, GOOD THINGS happen.
have a great day,
Jeff

Re: group show

I would like to see a motif in the work. Meaning, substance, focus, and cognitive directives would take the work beyond being a stack of objects.

Re: group show

Oscar, I do some representational work also which suffices to get my "motif "ya-yas out of my system. In my abstraction I am avoiding focus, meaning and cognitive directive as much as possible, letting my body assemble and manipulate without being bothered by that wise-guy up in my head. And the substance is steel. The physical thresholds are being sought and I disclaim responsibility for the resulting visual entity...blame it on the big dummy (unless of course it turns out interesting, then its all me). The work should always end up more important than the little idea that got it started. And the word "important" calls for us to evaluate priorities and no two humans will agree 100% on that.

So what kind of work do you do? You're a bit of a mystery here.

Yes, Oscar, what sculptures do you do?

Re: group show

Evaldart's second shot was taken while floating from too much to drink.

As for asking Oscar what kind of work he does? He is an art critic. Period.

Evaldart: I find myself liking your abstract work despite myself...probably because of the humor behind it.

Re: group show

It is possible for modern or contemporary work to be sooo serious and to try to mean soooo much that it means nothing. A dash of humor keeps things accessible, so I can understand what I'm making...so others can too.

Wrong anebriate Glenn, I've seen others float around plenty, enjoying their whatnot, but as a lifelong and bonafide beer drinker I have never left the ground. Quite the contrary, in fact. But alas I was not able to partake heartilyt at this event as the gallery is two hours from home - a long drive. So when I got back round midnight I went into a quiet studio, grabbed a can of Natural Ice and toasted myself...then went to bed.

Re: group show

Looks like you had fun, bravo, that's the biggest part of it for me followed by the sense of accomplishment in turning something lifeless, cold and ubiquitous into pure joy. Great work.

Are these metal fragments from the World Trade Center?

Re: group show

No Marblecutter, just plain old scrap and some heavy bar that I mangled up in my own special way. I did use WTC debris on a monument and found it more than mangled enough on its own. I would not have been so presumptuous to attempt to compete with a mangling job as harrowing as that.
