White Linen Night 2012

July 28, 2012

I have a portrait of my friend Brian Coogan, taken at Chaz Fest 2010, that is part of an open jury show at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. The opening is during White Linen Night, August 4th. This portrait was 1 of 600 works of that were selected for the “Southern Contemporary”…only 86 were chosen. I am honored to be in this show…it’s my first “official” hang at the Ogden.

That same night, is the closing of the Contemporary Art Center’s “NOLA NOW: The Human Figure” – a show of which i have a portrait of my friend Voice in. It’s going to be a good night….come see the prints in person…like i see them.

see you there.

I need you on this PROJECT!

July 2, 2012

Hello friends, i am hoping you are well and keeping it saturated during this 1st week of hot in 2012.

I have a new project i am excited about. In this quickly advancing world of rapid communication possibilities, instant gratification, and the speedy shedding of our old modes i saw a project emerge from the ashes of Apps and Text Messages. How do we Call Home now? How does home call us? text messages, emails through phones…etc….but whats next. I am not sure, but i know that our old ways will be gone, and i want to capture them before they are….

I am embarking on a game of TAG – i want to tag as many Telephone Booths around Orleans Parish as possible. I don’t care if they work, don’t have a receiver, or just are a shell of what we used on a daily basis to Call Home. i will group all of the tags on to a large wall map, and then proceed to document these phones with large format cameras, but also including portraits of real, human, communicators: Poets, Singers, Writers, Artists – all standing by these booths to show that although technology will change the way we communicate, nothing will change our most precious and original modes of expression and communication.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED – PLEASE RSVP to me PLEASE for further instructions.
