Me, Meghan Tomeo, Thomas Hooper,Brian Willmont, Cody Hoyt, and a shit load of other AMAZING chicks and dudes are in the sweet show. The first show is in Boston, Then it will be in NY (more info on that in the coming months) and in Baltimore. My works are for sale through me, so I will post pictures of the work, once the files are cleaned up and ready to go. I am working on putting together a store on this blog, along with some other special t-shirt projects. News soon…
Lufthansa Studios is pleased to announce Brutal Doodle, an exhibition curated by Alex DeMaria (MassArt 2007), Jack Schneider (SMFA 2010) and Todd White (SMFA 2009). This exhibition presents the “doodle” as subject matter- a much practiced but overlooked aspect of many contemporary artists’ studio practice. Doodling is distinct from sketching or preliminary drawings in that it taps into something humbler and more personal. Springing forward from a subconscious moment in time, the doodle occupies a place outside of intentionality, at times succumbing to “failure” or incompleteness. This means that doodles often get relegated to unseen places, never to be shown, yet it is in this very uncertain place that the value and energy of the doodle resides.
The curatorial approach taken for this unique exhibition resembles a meandering doodle in its own right. The curators each selected three artists to participate in the show. Those nine artists selected two more and each of those eighteen artists selected one more. This curatorial process results in a web-like network of forty-five artists from around the country.
Lufthansa Studios is an artist run studio and exhibition space in Dorchester Massachusetts. Exhibiting artists have access to a project space, on site facilities for production, and cooperation from resident artists and organizers. The current studio artists are, Chad Arnholt, Jen Barrows, John C. Gonzalez, Jack W. Schneider, Kirk Amaral Snow, and Garett Yahn.
Brutal Doodle will be open to the public from July 1st to the 15th. The opening reception will be on Friday July 1st from 6pm to 10pm. Gallery hours are 12-5pm Sat and Sun.
