I’ve been working on Ribbon Texts, and before I knew it, I had a specimen sheet of sorts:

It’s the first two-sided Ribbon Text thus far. There’s cream-colored ribbon for the front and fluorescent on the back.

Soup’s On:

Voices of Home closes this Tuesday, February 28 at Jenkins Johnson Gallery.

In Other Words continues through March 24 at Intersection for the Arts.

People art talking
Voices of Home was an NYC-Arts pick, in the February 16 episode (16:38).

From that pick, The preview image for Give Thanks, my installation of gratitude pennant flags, was re-blogged on this Tumblr featuring women artists. The unabashedly enthusiastic title is pretty awesome.

In Other Words has been reviewed in the S.F. Chronicle and the Zero1 blog, and reception photos are on ArtBusiness.com.

I can’t stop thinking about this Terry Winters collage, featuring Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow model (for more info, see prior blog post).

Looking forward to the forthcoming art fairs coming to NYC in March, and especially Frieze on Randall’s Island in May.
