A prominent SF based furniture manufacturer has tapped me to produce artwork to hang in their newly remodeled showroom in the design center and New York City. I’ve been given an entire room and asked to generate work for all walls (possibly NYC and LA too!) Once it’s hung we will throw a lovely opening party in the SF showroom and get down to my music, surrounded by my art.
I am fundraising to generate the resources I need to print more than 200 fine color and black and white prints, cut and stain 200 wood mounts, the hardware to hang these works, and an additional 8 very large format prints in museum quality giclée format on ph neutral gallery paper.
The series is called In Real Life and it’s based on my commitment to abandoning the computer and the mobile phone and bring my music, performance, and artwork into the physical world. Each photograph will be 2″ x 2″ square and be displayed in an 16 x 20 grid featuring a hanging vintage magnifying glass to the right of each grid.
There will be a black and white grid, a color grid, and a quarter size “dirty” grid with a gilded magnifying glass for the study, or the bed room. Between these larger than life micro realizations of the “insta” format, I will hang large format collage images from my situationist series at the same 16 x 20 size.
The works will be sold as complete pieces, or in small sets of 4, 8 and 16. Im still trying to decide if, once the installation is complete and we’ve had our grand opening party if I will be willing to actually sell the pieces from the walls, or if the purchases will also be commissions and I will then go into the lab and print the pieces which have been commissioned. I am leaning toward the one of a kind artwork, and not toward multiple production runs. I think these will have more personal significance if they are produced but once, and not repeated.
You will be invited to the grand opening performance, and I will give you a huge hug and my endless devotion and gratitude.
You will be invited to the grand opening performance, and I will present you with 1 mounted print in color or black and white (you choose.)

You will be invited to the grand opening performance, and I will present you with both a large format print, and 4 mounted prints (please choose color or black and white,) plus a vintage magnifying glass to hang beside your selection of images.
