This crayon rubbing was made by buttoning four men’s shirts together, in a daisy-chain fashion. They were then laid out on a table and covered with a sheet of drafting film. I then used wax and encaustic crayons to create the rubbing. It was produced during a pop-up open studio in Queens. The project was made possible with a grant from The Queens Council on the Arts.

Clothing Sculpture – Installation Shot for Pop-up Studio
I’m so excited to receive a New Work Grant from The Queens Council on the Arts! I’ll be doing a 1 month pop-up/open studio in the heart of Jackson Heights. I’ll create a new body of work and after a month, have a show at my beloved cafe Espresso 77. Should be interesting! Maybe you will swing by and give me some feedback?
 
This project is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
 
Below is the proposal I submitted: 
During the month of September, the artist will: 

– Create a dozen new works, extending his practice.

– Actively engage with local organizations (eg. The 82nd Street BID, The Renaissance School).

– Encourage passers-by to come in and provide feedback.

– Invite guest artists to work alongside him.

– Host weekly events in the evening. 

– Strive to be collaborative and inclusive.

He hopes that this project will strengthen the creative fabric of his community. At the end of the pop-up, the resulting work will be exhibited at Espresso 77, a local cafe.
