Happy 2012!

Hello friends,

I hope the new year is treating you well. 2011 was a great year for me, and 2012 is shaping up to be even better. I thought I’d let you know of all the exciting exhibitions, publications, and news that are about to occur.

I have 3 group paper art exhibitions that are going to be taking place in the next two months. Information for each show is as follows:

For many, crafting with paper and scissors might be considered one of the earliest introductions to art. While some have ventured off to experiement other methods of artistry, a loyal few have indulged in their fascination with paper cut to produce works simple in context yet startlingly enigmatic in precision. Gallery Nucleus invites you to revisit the fundamental medium of paper and blade with “Carved Complexities,” an exhibition featuring a select group of renowned paper cut artists who elevate the form of paper cutting to new heights of detail and imagination

Participating artists include: Ted Prize Winner Beatrice Coron, Hunter Stabler, Julene Harrison, Kevin Jay Stanton, Lucrezia Bieler, Matt Shlian, and Mr. Yen. I am honored to show with this ridiculously talented group of paper artists.

Since its development in 2nd century China, paper has primarily been used in artistic practices as a flat surface for the application of other materials. With the advent of origami in 17th century Japan, artists have embraced paper as a primary resource, and have continued to explore its dimensional and organic possibilities. Included in this exhibition are works by Jin Lee, Anonda Bell and others.

I will also be showing with the wonderful Lauren Clay whose work can be found here:  http://www.doublefluff.com/

I will send an updated participant list once it becomes finalized but there are some pretty heavy hitters in this exhibition. 

I will also be participating in the 2012 G40 Summit Exhibit that will be hosted in Richmond this year. This is a great event celebrating Installation art and Street art. It was a huge success last year and is looking to be as good this year. Tentative dates are set for April but I will have more info once it is finalized. Big thanks to Microwave projects for inviting me to participate again. 

University of Arkansas has invited me to give an artist lecture on my work as well as a small exhibition and demo of my process on Thursday April 26th. This will be an exciting experience to share my work and process to such a successful program. I’d like to thank The University of Arkansas and Robert Lemming for arranging this visit. 

I will be featured in the upcoming publication “Paper Work” published by Sandu Publishing. This has been in the works for some time and will be set to release soon. I will notify you once this publication becomes available.

 

Schleunungdruck, a German publishing company, also put out a great paper art calendar that featured two of my works. 

Work feature in Schleunung Druck 2012 Calendar

Der Bildkalender 2012 ist fertig!- Der fast schon traditionelle Bildkalender für alle Kunden und Freunde von Schleunungdruck wurde gerade versandbereit gemacht. Es ist der vierte Kalender mit Motiven von internationalen und sehr namhaften Papierkünstlern, die zeigen, was sich aus dem Rohstoff Papier alles machen lässt. Wieder eine sehr vielfältige Mischung von Künstlern aus Deutschland, Schottland und den USA. Und weil die Auswahl und Vorbereitung sehr viel Zeit braucht, laufen auch schon die Vorbereitungen für den Kalender 2013!   –  The Image Calendar 2012 is ready! The traditional picture calendar for almost all customers and friends of Schleunungdruck was made ​​just ready. It is the fourthcalendar with images of international paper and very well-knownartists that show what you can do everything from the raw material paper. Again a very diverse mix of artists from Germany, Scotland and the USA. And because the selection and preparation takes a long time, even the preparations for the 2013 calendar!

Finally, I’ve been invited to participate in the ART PAPERS ART AUCTION for 2012 and am extremely honored to do so. ART PAPERS is a wonderful publication and is a not-for-profit publication providing diverse perspectives on contemporary art for thirty-five years.
