Test #1. YES. Milled from a photo I took of Guy and Chewy last year, snapped mid yawn. This piece will be Future Retrieval's contribution to BYOB (bring your own beamer) this Friday night at the CAC, curated by Jordan Tate. I am also teaching a tile class next quarter at UC, and want to incorporate lithophanes into the coursework, so this is officially a test.

Installation, Still[ed] Life

An overall panorama shot of my installation with Guy Michael Davis, Still[ed] Life at the Taft Museum of Art. The show consists of ten busts of Alphonso Taft, father of William Howard Taft and founder of the Skull and Bones. We were drawn to his stoic pose and the mean carbuncle on his head.

There are also five porcelain still lives, inspired by Dutch painter Balthasar van der Ast. The Taft has one van der Ast painting, and it is the only new addition to their historic collection. For more images of the show and process photos, click here.
