tttrip at GRIN, Providence

I am pleased be participating in tttrip, a 3 person show at GRIN Gallery in Providence, RI.

A trip is a form of disconnection and an experience of time. Whether referring to the tripping of a circuit or a ride in an airplane, a trip brings about a drastic change to the subject and it’s surroundings. The work in tttrip explores the various aspects of the word through visual, physical, conceptual experiences.

Artists: Garrett Gould, Claudia O’Steen, and Sophia Sobers

Older Than Bambi brings together the diverse creative practices of the RISD Digital + Media MFA classes of 2012 and 2013. While there is no single theme that links this collection of works, which ranges across media, disciplines and scales, certain preoccupations emerge.

I will be participating in a collaborative performance with Christopher Funkhouser and Amy Hufnagel at Interrupt II, Brown University, Providence, RI – February 11th.


Raw Substance

My work will be part of Raw Substance, curated by Jacqueline Cruz, at Art Kitchen in Newark, NJ.

Opening Reception: Friday, October 21st, 7-10 PM, during the Newark Open Doors Gallery Crawl

Raw Substance is a group exhibition consisting of artists who explore “non-traditional” materials through alternative processes. This exhibition takes a closer look at raw materials such as organics, resin, encaustics, textiles, handmade biodegradable paper to light photography. Furthermore, this exhibition focuses on artists who continually investigate and push the boundaries of medium specificity. At times these materials require labor-intensive techniques that can be unfortunately lost in visual translation when exhibited through a subjective or thematic trajectory. Preservation and sustainability have also become of a greater challenge for artists and conservators alike. Raw Substance highlights artists who consider the effects of time, perishability and deteriorating effects as an important criterion of their artistic expression.


#FFFFFF Space

ffffff_space

Love/Hate is currently being exhibited on #FFFFFF Space, an internet-based exhibition forum curated by Polina Teif and Shannon Garden-Smith. The name, #FFFFFFspace, is derived from the html code that designates the colour white and is thus an abbreviated form of “white space” signalling its reconstitution of the physically manifest exhibition space of the “white cube”. While the platform acknowledges its curatorial antecedent of the real-space gallery, it is not a simple transference of the modes of presentation employed therein.
