Lightworks sculpture Torus 9, 2014. The Lightworks series create unique, more intimate experiences in color, form, surface, and change. Formerly focused as Torus, as seen here or Lozenge shapes, each new iteration builds upon the former, expanding my dialog on and investigation of color. Set to precisely delineated paces, brightness, and colors, I see these works as highly specific three-dimensional canvases that I paint with light and that are durationally experienced.
One of these bricks is not like the others ✨ Can you find our new pop up show in SLC? Here’s a hint: it’s near @lazizslc.

“Lucid Stead is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change of the desert. When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project begins to unfold before you. It reveals that it is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change.” In this widely recognized 2013 project, an existing homesteader shack was transformed into a mirrored structure that, by day, reflected the desert surroundings and, by night, shifted into a color-changing projected light installation. #lucidstead
Such fun to see this site specific painting in its perfect place. I painted the background wallpaper to be the same as the actual wallpaper @hyggeandwest in the study. .
This piece was painted for my husband and so every object in the composition has particular meaning for him/us. I think in a way all paintings are portraits, in some form, even if they don't include faces/figures. Objects hold meaning in our lives, and it's those memories that are celebrated in this piece. #stilllifepainting#cozystudy#wallpaper#sitespecificart
“This piece, the second part of a trilogy invites audiences to witness and consider what it means for women to challenge the patriarchal paradigm, speaking truth about oppression and demanding justice.” Find out more about LUMINOUS STREETS featured in the phenomenal Cultural Weekly... #LUMINOUSSTREETS#LAthtr

Christodoulos Panayiotou, 'Act II: The Island' might be seen as a reference to the turbulent status of the ‘British Isles’ as we approach Brexit, with all its attendant discourses of nationalism, identity and self-determination; as well as the complex political history of Cyprus as a former British colony. Please join us for the exhibition preview on Thursday 26 September at Camden Arts Centre from 6.30pm 🥂
Memories from the future
Incredible Adventures of the Bearded Women. Behind the scenes.
The exhibition at @xponartgallery is showing additional materials of the Bearded Women Movie Saga. It’s intention is to give the viewer a glimpse into the Bearded Women Universe and show the movie creation process.
You will see the space of @xponartgallery invaded by organisms from Bearded Women World. Some are safely hibernating in glass cases, others are trying to escape or have already infiltrated and populated the space (downstairs). The exposition starts with portraits and photographs of the participants of the project. You will see them in the stage of transformation/mutation/hybridization under the influence of the organisms from BW Universe . The pictures downstairs are becoming part of living collage-organism/ risome , soft and flesh-like, living in perfect symbiosis with the environment and videos. You will see some rough-cut movie sequences, behind the scenes, casting episodes, an animation from 2013 when the idea of bearded women started to germinate.
Also downstairs you can have a look at the amazing costume designs by @genia.log and costumes themselves, which are, of course, also living creatures glittering in the dark. You can also create a costume design yourself for the Bearded Ladies!

You know how you sometimes you get a tune stuck in your head, which is called an earworm? Or a thought, which is called a thoughtworm (it’s not, but maybe it should be)? What about if you get a catchphrase or a meme stuck in your head?
Such is the case with Oh, Hello.

Metafossil (Pinus: ponderosa, radiata, balfouriana). Scroll: a work about species migration and climate change, 1992.
Three elements, 7 ft., 10 ft. and 12 ft. long, steel, refractory kiln cement, species specific pine boughs and needles, Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco, CA, 1992; outdoor installation, Oakland, Museum, Oakland, CA, 1992-95; outdoor installation, “Facing Eden: 100 Years of Landscape Art in the Bay Area,” M. H. deYoung Museum, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA, 1995, collection of deYoung Museum, San Francisco, CA.
Metafossil.., has three principal elements in which the structure of each unit was developed by the layering of a single species of needle-laden pine branches in wet refractory kiln cement over a steel armature to make a "proto-fossil" of each variety in the form of a descending ship. The pine needles were collected from their contemporary native habitat in the mountains of coastal and central California. The form of the descending ship refers to the process of geologic deposition of sedimentary/natural material and the transience of ‘indigenous’ bio-cultures across the landscape as a result of climatic change. #climatechange#conceptualart#contemporaryart#visualart#earthwork#installationart#artecontemporanea#artepovera#environmentalart@anglimgilbertgallery#sitespecific#sitespecificart#studiojohnroloff#bayareaceramics#hyperobject#artandscience#artandecology#anthropocene#quaternary#speciesmigration
“As the roman alphabet spread through oral Europe, the Old English word “spell,” which had meant simply to recite a story or tale, took on the new double meaning: on the one hand, it now meant to arrange, in the proper order, the written letters that constitute the name of a thing or a person; on the other, it signified a magic formula or charm. Yet these two meanings were not nearly as distinct as they have come to seem to us today. For to assemble the letters that make up the name of a thing, in the correct order, was precisely to effect a magic, to establish a new kind of influence over that entity, to summon it forth! To spell, to correctly arrange the letters to form a name or a phrase, seemed thus at the same time to cast a spell, to exert a new and lasting power over the things spelled. Yet we can now realize that to learn to spell was also, and more profoundly, to step under the influence of the written letters ourselves, to cast a spell upon our own senses. It was to exchange the wild and multiplicitous magic of an intelligent natural world for the more concentrated and refined magic of the written word.” (David Abram)

“The Child Within Me”, a selection of works from the private collection of Ömer Koç, is a must see in Istanbul. This site specific installation, “Soupir”, is a collaboration between artist Ahmet Dogu Ipek and architect Hakan Demirel. Designed for the 2nd floor of a 150 year old mansion, the work symbolizes the expansion of the body (space) with a sigh, and the ecosystem created through the oxygen spreading into the space with each deep breath taken. #soupir#thechildwithinme#omerkoccollection#ömerkoç#sitespecificart#istanbul@ahmetdoguipek@_hakandemirel_
