My first proper solo show, Irrational Exuberance (Asst. Colors), opens tomorrow (Friday) from 7-10 pm.
Join me at Sight School, an artist-run storefront directed by Michelle Blade, located at 5651 San Pablo Street at Powell/Stanford in Oakland.
I’ve been making art for this show for months. The ideas behind the works have been germinating for a year or more. I’ve spent every day this week preparing the gallery, installing the art, reminding myself to breathe, and giving thanks for friends and family.
I’ve never run a marathon before, but I imagine that there are similarities to the process of getting ready for this show. I’ve been singularly focused on it for so long that it’s hard to believe that the opening’s here already.
