MAPPING THE INSIDE OUT AT CAFFE LUCE
My solo show Mapping the Inside Out is now up at Caffé Lucé in Tucson. The café’s official address is 943 E University Ave,, #191, but the main entrance is on Park Ave., right across from the University of Arizona. And tonight I’ll be there in person from 6-9pm for First Thursday, so come down and see me, if you’re in town and free. I’d love to chat!
Although this show builds on the one with the same title I had at the Wanderlust Gallery in Tucson last March, it features a lot of new material, including my “Headlines” series, in which I use the images of people in the news, and my “Melancholia” series (from which the work above derives), in which I expand on the film stills approach I’ve been exploring for the last several years to make large color drawings based on Lars von Trier’s wonderful film of the same name.
I should also mention that my long essay on Melancholia is up on the website of the Italian journal Furiaumana. You can read it there, of course, but if you would rather download it to print or transfer to an electronic reader like the Kindle or Nook, I strongly recommend that you avoid the journal’s PDF, which is extremely glitchy, and use mine instead. Here’s the link, if you’re interested: “FREEDOM IN OBLIVION: POST-FEMINIST POSSIBILITIES
IN LARS VON TRIER’S MELANCHOLIA”.
TOY CAMERA SHOW
I am excited to have photographs in Curious Camera’s competition at Photographic Works in Tucson for the second year running. My images were made with a Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim and a homemade twin lens reflex. Here’s one from the Vivitar:
There’s a lot of great work on display, so head on down and take a look.
