SPRING 2019

Finally. Its slightly warm outside.

Spring’s been spent with epoxy concrete mixtures, patina samplings, and bronze casting. Sugarcanes and Baseball bats aplenty.

Ive created an Instagram for Para Roberto - @ParaRobertoBx. It will be the place where ill post about the monument from concept to completion. Like and Stay Tuned.

Below’s a sneak peek from my most recent visit to the Polich Tallix foundry in Upstate NY. No patina. No coatings. A freshly welded work in progress.

…and some sugarcanes peeking out from the side ;-)

The oversized “Abuelo” chair for Para Roberto. Made from casted baseball and stickball bats. “pinky”balls included.

On another note…

I am delighted to be in a group show, Hand and I, at Dorsky Curatorial in Long Island City. I have 3 works - including 2 brand new large-scale wood embroideries - fresh off my residency at Wave Hill this winter.

Orinoco, 2019. Embroidery on Wood Panel, 30” x 40”.  Inspired by the recent uprisings and political upheval of Venezuela, I embroidered the country as an oil spill running off the side of the work, relating the country’s inherent sovereignty with the corporate greed which seeks to destroy it.
