Good Show



My Soho show at Gallery Juno comes down this weekend. I have to thank the gallery for hosting the show and for their continued support. I am also so grateful for the people who showed up at the reception to support me. It’s rather humbling. I was pleased to have sold a couple of pieces as well. I think the show was a success.


What makes for a good show? The sales; the people with the kind words they offered about my work; the reviews? I just don’t have the answers to this question so I push on.


Here is Aries I. I first wrote about this piece back in January. It’s my largest piece to date at almost six feet tall and weighing in around 50 lbs. and it commands a lot of attention.


I was exploring what working large is like. It’s a very different experience. When working on smaller sized pieces, it’s a more intimate experience. A large piece can easily loose its “art-ness” and become a piece of furniture. The engineering alone is a completely different skill set that I have to get better at.


And I am relieved that, as designed, it comes apart to make shipping easier and with two 100 lb. hooks, it does hang easily.
