Working With What is Already There

     Some think working from a blank canvas can be difficult. But I must submit that working with something that is already there, presents some additional and unique challenges. At least with a blank canvas, what you add comes directly from your own thoughts. Every color, texture and shape can be added. Not so, when working in assemblage or mixed media. Your fodder is selected from things that may not be completely ideal, and you must make them fit the bill. In fact, the odd items…

My Art Basel (Miami) Experience

I have known about Art Basel since my freshman year of college in 2008/2009. Since graduating I have become a full-time studio assistant for the artist Radcliffe Bailey. I was lucky enough to go down this year with him and was able to get into a lot of fairs. The NADA fair, the Untitled fair, and the Scope fair. My personal favorite was the "Untitled" fair, the work was conceptually intriguing and technically executed well. The fair gave the work space to breathe more so than the other fairs…
