2016 came and went in a sometimes literal blur. While there are many days I don’t remember, I have an enormous body (so to speak) of work to help me trace back through the days. With a special thank you to the teams of doctors, family, friends and neighbors who helped me stay alive and industrious- here’s a small sampling of the medically inspired art produced over the course of the year.
A small selection of GIF animations made from medical test images/files, collections of moss and lichen, and slices of my stomach and a dogwood tree.
Digital collage with film stills of Triborough Bridge, Lichen, Chipped Paint, Rusty Walls, and Abdominal CT scans. (Prints of digital collage images available here)
undoubtedly a weird one- this one is an unfinished foam body-cast, with a cocophany of found objects/materials. Work in Progress. Featured 4/2016 – It’s Alive! at World Money Gallery.
And of course- Flux Factory’s Artificial Retirement, which exhibited the gastric/lunar textile series In Honor of Imperfection: Celestial Bodies in an Urban Sphere
