After having done so much site-specific, commission-based work over the previous years, it was nice to have a studio practice again and in a proper studio. While not private, since people came in and out during the day, I was able to find a sense of flow. Here are some detail shots of my working process that month.

During the the run of the pop-up, I did a crayon rubbing workshop for the Viva La Comida street fair. We drew with probably a hundred kids that day!

This piece is called “A Shirts”. I later wore another version of it for a little 1-day show at Pip-Squeak Chapeau for the Callicoon Art Walk. It was made by daisy-chaining 4 dress shirts together at the plackets.

I used the original version of A Shirt to create this drawing. I laid the garments flat on the table, placed drafting film over top and rubbed it with archival, encaustic crayons.
