Now I am Here. #15

Finally posting after a long (but really good!) day… I began installing "In Between" today with the help of several assistants and my gallerist, Mike Holmes.  We started around 10:30 and worked until 6. Tomorrow I will return and finish.

The opening is tomorrow from 6-8pm at Velvet da Vinci located at 2015 Polk Street in San Francisco.

Thanks for reading.

Now I am Here, #14

I literally just finished my work. I always call the "time of death" when I'm done. It's not really the best way of putting it, but it's been a tradition for me ever since I completed the work for my first solo show in 2011. 

Very soon I will post photos and tell you all about it.

Thanks for reading.

Now I am Here, #12

My students and I started cutting paper bows yesterday. There are 403 pictured here. These, along with as many as we can cut before Friday, will be suspended from the ceiling of the elevator shaft.

Now I am Here, #10

An image taken by Mike Holmes, my wonderful gallerist and friend, after I finished installing "I Live Here Now" in the garage at Velvet da Vinci yesterday. Mike is standing inside the elevator (where my installation will be next weekend) as I look out into the garage. The work looks incredible in the well-worn, distressed room and my exhibition marks the first time it will be used to show work. Special thanks to Nikki Coupee for all her hard work during the day.

Please join us tomorrow, October 18 at 7pm for my lecture and conversation. Then join us again for the opening reception for "In Between," the installation I'm making in conjunction with my residency at CCA on Saturday, October 25 from 6-8pm.

Velvet da Vinci is located at 2015 Polk Street in San Francisco.
