Rumble Above the Clouds exhibition - September-October 2011 - Part 2

In a previous post I discussed how I was invited to take part in the Rumble Above The Clouds group show which includes many NYC Fine Artists. I plan to show a new laser/light work. The show is located inside the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, 60th and Columbus, in Manhattan/NYC. Again, no, this is not the church which the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man crushes, but it is relatively close by.

I was asked by a few of the organizers about the visibility, quality and strength of the laser for this installation. Here is my edited response:

The laser light is modest, subtle, and contemplative. It acts more as a constellation, not an exploding star. Something that should be pointed out to others, it is not a laser that will hurt you or one that is obvious, and just marking an area. It is a spiritual light/laser, not a military one. A far off, distant star cluster. A thousand candles, a mile away. It is a rumble, not a bolt of lightning.

Below is documented image of the installation.

The opening is next Thursday, September 29th from 7-9pm

Free, unlimited digital drawing give-a-way to New York State residents in memorial of WTC.

In memory of September 11th, I am giving away an unlimited batch of unique, digital drawings to all those with a current New York address and/or those who lived in New York State on September 11, 2001. This give-a-way will last for one week only (through next Sunday, September 18, 2011)

Do you have questions about the drawings? Why would I give away a work of Fine Art that I truly believe in? Read here.

For those who already have a small drawing, you are entitled to upgrade your participation in the project: Now you will receive a large digital drawing... and those who already own a large digital drawing, are entitled to a small or large drawing.

Here is a recent quote about the drawing series:
"Galileo would be proud." -Rhett Mataix from the Brooklyn rock band, We Ride

Just email me here, and please include your name and New York postal address. As stated in an earlier post: I will NEVER sell, lend, trade, share, give out any information sent to me.

Березин революция [Berezin Revolution]...

From 2006-2008 my studio and work was somewhat dormant. I thought about Fine Art a great deal, I drew many drawings, but worked on and completed very few major installations. One such work from the parallel panels series, Березин революция [Berezin Revolution] (Made out with the red giant too) 2006-2009, the title of the work was inspired by the owners of the work and a mathematician/physicist of the same name, but not particularly this revolution.

When discussing the work, one of the owner's mentioned how the the parallel panels body of work relates to an Eruv, a ritual enclosure that allows observant people to carry objects on the Jewish Sabbath. I find that the concept of the Eruv also relates to my older work, Future Concerns of Relative Space 1999-2001, which is also much about the space and context that surrounds the work as well as what happens with the object itself (and what goes on inside the work).

Here is video documentation of the installation:
