Me, Mine, and not Yours

Here is an example of the new work on paper by Joe and I that we are offering sponsors of our show Me, Mine, and not Yours for a donation of $100 or more. Each one is a 14" x 17" unique work on paper combining acrylic paint with pencil drawing. Email us if you'd like to help us out and get this bargain drawing - you can also specify colors (approx) if you'd like. Each one will be different as the space gets divided up according to a little back and forth battle of the brushes.

New Work for Houston Show in August

I have been working on some new drawings for our show at Mackey Gallery in August. The tide seems to be drifting me towards graphite on paper and a return to drawing. Also as you can see the subject is my life again.

New work and pregnancy

Here are some new items from the studio that are obviously influenced by my whole journey in pregnancy. They are all works on paper and range from 11 x 14 inches to 12 x 17 inches.

The nursery has become my studio

So for those of you who may not know, Joe and I are expecting our first child to arrive this January. It's an exciting time which has pretty much transformed my studio practice from focused on me to focused on the baby (I am about a month from my due date). I figured I would post the nursery pics on my blog so you can see what I have been up to outside of the "studio".

So as the "nesting" instinct kicked in, I designed and made a mobile for my little one. A flock of birds which rest on yarn wrapped sticks and twirl through the air with the slightest provocation.

Joe and I also designed and executed a mural for the baby's room. A simple forest theme in greens, tans, and blues. We are now taking commissions for your kids' room as well...

Two Sides of One Brain

So lately I have continued the more abstract gouaches but have also taken to making some drawings in graphite again that are completely representational. The following is a mixture of the results....

LA Fluxco Show

This past weekend I was in LA for a group show at Fluxco Gallery. The show featured five artists from the west coast and five from the east coast and was pretty cool since it ended up that each artist shared a room with an artist from the opposite coast. I was in a room with an artist from LA named, Mike, who is responsible for the wooden extentsion cord reaching towards splat. It was a fun show and owner of the gallery, Ford, said that this was one of his favorite things that he has put together in the space. It should be open for a few more weeks (till mid June) so if you are gonna be in town email me and I'll put you in touch with Ford since it's by appointment only.

Enjoy the pics - there's Michael Eudy posing with Ford's golden words in the background (and then Michael's paintings in the shot above). I am also there with my friend Kabira who I have know since birth and who was my fabulous hostess for my time in LA. Then there are some gallery shots including some details of the architectural oddities that I really enjoyed responding to in the art. Letting the works creep out into and under the enviroment more that before....Pictured below is Joe's video again in another context - this time it was in a room with his drawings and then photos of buildings by another artist - the two cities coexisting together. It was cool to see Joe's work small kind of like a little painting at that scale.

Good Intentions at Temple Gallery, April 9 - 13, 2007

So I finally got it together and finished the video documentation of the gallery show Good Intentions that was on view at Temple Gallery from April 9 - 13, 2007. Walking through the gallery with a camera captures the intricate nature of many of the works on view. The only thing some people may notice is that this video documentation was taken before all of the changes in the show occured - so the tables are still there and the yarn graffiti over the fire alarm isn't there yet. Enjoy the evolution! By the way if you want to see this documentation in a larger viewer that you can read titles on - go to www.blip.tv and search jahjehan bath ives.
