Getting it Together.

I am consistently wanting to make everything.

And, then I want to make everything else and then I make some things and then they live in a hard drive or on a shelf or on a wall or in storage or at a friends house (Thank goodness for friends who love your stuff) or wherever it lands. That does not work. Showing your work is important and yet I have been opposed to participating for some unknown reason. Slowly unraveling the reasons, I realize that the Art world as I know it is not very interesting. The people are interesting. It is fun to swim in a sea that is over saturated with self worth and importance and a never ending supply of booze and conversation. It is the conversation that I love, it is the moment within a conversation where a group has a shared mutual mind. Even if only for a brief moment, this is the data exchange that intrigues me.

This is why I leave my studio to venture to your show/ studio / lecture / conversation.

 There is a fear when you are creating your own reality that is solely based on what the hell am I building philosophy of life.

What are we building? What am I building? These are all questions that I contemplate at the very least once a week.

On this note, I am committing to redoing my website and making all of my blogs and Etsy and Pinterest and tumblr and Facebook and all of the other things I forget passwords to quite frequently (Don't judge, there are lots of moving parts both inside and outside of my mind and world.)

Either way, I have needs and my need for a flat file tends to be superceded by my desire to ride my bike.

In the mean time, here are some images from all of the combined media I have been working on.

Google. Pinterest. Forces Combined. I am into Geometry

Google and Pinterest have combined and optimized together so that google images now returns Pinterest heavy results. Wow! I call that an epic example of google favoritism in a non resourceful way. Fail. Google it. In the meantime. I am into geometry.

John Peri Salon

New Hair. New Year. New Now.

Thanks to Kelly Marine at John Peri Salon in Marina Del Rey for delicately taking me to my new grown up do. As an artist, I realized I am my own palette and why not get my hair in on the action. So, I have finally decided to ditch my low to no maintenance locks for a little adult dose of sophistication and add some depth to my style. So I took my virgin hair and gave it a triangle of darker shades and a Mohawk of highlights and some lowlights in the mix for a bit more definition.

I couldn't be more happy with the results!

Check out the website.

What is luxury? A Birthday Wish

I am thankful for the friends I have and the places I have been. I have won the lottery.

Currently in the studio examining the value of everything and the meaning of face value. Within this tight construct of beauty and luxury and demand and ultimate energy, I swim with the notion of riches and their definition and ultimate play. As I aim to transcend limitations, there is sometimes new limitations arise.

The grass may or may not be greener.

Simply wondering if there is a direct correlation to genetics and need for gems. That which outshines the others wins. This is true in some circumstances. I am sure Damian Hirst goes for shine. Glossy is always in, unless its not.

Love is the ultimate relay.


Chateau Marmot

Apparently everything in LA is way better when you walk in and own the place. After playing the piano at the Chateau Marmot on a Friday night and feeling like I was exactly where I was supposed to be and wondering if I may have been slipped some sort of delusion in my drink, which by the way was beyond amazing and worth every bit of thirty well earned dollars, I pinched myself. It was indeed really real and a truly unique experience that satiates my need to live in Los Angeles. And by amazing drink, I mean an infusion of spice with nice and a twist of deliciousness that will bring you back. Working on the next appearance and planning to play some songs I have been waiting to play.
