Show in Dec.

I was going to keep this on the down low for a while but I just got informed by my friend fellow Mass Art Alum Kim Beury that she received an email promoting this years shows at Eastern District which is a new gallery in Bushwick Brooklyn. So I guess this is my first informal, save the date post about the show I will be having. Like I said, I was going to hold off for another few months or weeks to post an anouncement, but if people are already hearing about it I might as well confirm. So the scheduled opening is for Dec. 11th from 7pm-10pm and the show will run from Dec. 11th-Jan. 10th. It will be selected images from my personal work that has been shot from the past 6+ months and pictures I have yet to make from now till probably early fall. I will be pushing this show pretty hard when the time comes so keep an eye out toward the end of the summer.

another quote

I apologize for all these quotes. I've just been scanning and while the epson does it's thing I've been catching up on a lot of blog reading. Here's another great one.

"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is nonexistent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.”

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. We’ve added years to life, not life to years.
