Postcards up at The Alice

Show alert! I submitted a work to Everyone's $50, an annual bring-us-your-art show at The Alice gallery in Seattle. Works can be seen Saturday's 12-7pm or by appointment, and are up through the end of December. More info at the Facebook event here.  

I submitted copies of Postcards 1-4, part of a project I've been working on but hadn't figured out how to share just quite yet. It's a work in progress and ongoing series, so I'm excited to test putting it out into the world. I also learned how to make an envelope - so that was fun.  

New Zine!

 8 Years, 8 Shitty Apartments is my first real attempt to reflect on my life in New York now that I've put some distance between us. My relationship with the city was complicated, and in many ways it still isn't over. I decided to start peeling back the layers by viewing my life through the buildings I inhabited. My living arrangements in New York were often so strange or volatile that I can't help but track my memories by recalling where I was living at the time. It's a tiny toe dip into the subject waters for me, and I recognize that it will probably be several years before I am able to produce a work that portrays my experience effectively. Until then, I have to trust that my fears around revealing this particular piece indicate there is a decent amount of truth exposed in it all.
