Miami Sun and my Roommates Blog

I've been going nonstop since I've returned from the Arctic, making new work and traveling for exhibitions. I've finished my first piece from this year's Arctic trip (which required a few all nighters to complete in time for the Miami art fairs). It will be shown with Conner Contemporary Art at Pulse Art Fair .

These images are from my new piece titled "In the Cold Edge."

My video from last year, Fade to White will also be there as part of a curated program titled "Pulse Play ". Todd Smith, director of the Tampa Art Museum (where my mid-career survey show will open next year) curated the program. My new NASCAR video will also be in Miami at Winkleman Gallery as part of the new fair/exhibition "Seven".

All this activity has made it difficult to upload my journal from the Arctic. "Bear" with me ... it will come, but in the meanwhile check out my roommate from the Noorderlicht's blog. Urszula Dawkins is a beautifully lyrical writer that does justice to the region and experience that I never could. Her blog is I couldn't recommend a better read!

Back ... in Charlotte

Apologies for lack of updates. I got back to NYC, decompressed a bit, then had to finalize materials and fly to Charlotte for my show at the Mint Museum.

I give a talk at the museum today, and the show opens on Friday (November 6). The show includes four videos, including Fade to White (which features footage shot in Svalbard in 2009) and DUET, a new piece built around NASCAR pit crews!

Information about the show is on the Mint Museum's website.

While I've been in the Arctic, things in the real world have stayed busy. I was happy to come back to find that my recent show at Conner Contemporary Gallery was reviewed in the November ARTnews and the October ArtForum.

I'll post more updates and photos from Svalbard here soon. Just have to catch my breath!
