Open Studio Overview: INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS ( An abstract look at living spaces and their decorative qualities)
Date: Sunday 14 June 2015
Place: 631 Edgecombe Avenue Apt. 5E NY NY 10032 (corner 165 Street)
Hello family and friends alike, it's that time of year again!
Last year for my open studio I presented my photo documentary works, which was a first for me in that genre. This year SUNDAY 14 JUNE 2015 for my open studio on view will be eight photographic prints from the series I'm presently working on titled " Interiors and Exteriors". I was inspired to work on this series after first taking the Introduction to Decorative Arts Workshop in Chelsea last year.
This will be an on going series. It is my hope that when I return to the Advance Decorative Arts Workshop this fall I will gain further inspiration from the advance techniques I'll be learning, such as gilding, hand painted wall paper, custom decorative paint and plasters techniques yet to be included in my vocabulary!
Creating a decorative arts portfolio separately from my photographic portfolio has been rewarding for I can see my growth as an artist both visually, artistically and intellectually.
However, as I continue to grow as an artist, individual and human being I welcome these new experiences that allow me to share those experiences with you through my artistic mediums, whether that be through the decorative arts, my poetry or photography!
I humbled and would be honoured if you can join me at my studio during the Uptown Art Stroll 2015 in Washington Heights!
"TOLERANCE IS RESPECT DELAYED"
To my Friends and Family, I'm looking forward to your vote of confidence by attending my open studio at my flat as part of the Uptown Art Stroll 2014. Sponsored by Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance. If you weren't able to make to my group exhibit The Arsenal at Central Park Gallery earlier this year (JAN-FEB 2014) , this is your opportunity to see my documentary photography the entire series. Hope to see as I challenge myself artistically!
Open Studio overview: I will be presenting my most recent photographic body of work, which is more documentary in style. I most recently had an exhibition at the Arsenal Gallery Central Park curated by the NYC Park's Ebony Society titled "The March". Which was held Jan 23rd-Feb 27, 2014.
This was my first showing publicly of my evolution into this genre of photography. For this style of photography was foreign to me but I challenged myself and I felt validated, as it was well received. I continue to challenge myself artistically and personally thereby, showing my growth and evolution through my expressive mediums. This series which is untitled to date, is a massive departure from my more abstract work I'm known for, which I continue to love and photograph. At the juried exhibition four of my prints were chosen for “The March”.
However at my open studio I will be presenting others from that series to include the four photographic prints that was on exhibit at the Arsenal Gallery 2014.These new photographic prints were taken in 2012 at the "Stop & Frisk" march, that was held Father's Day of that year and the Gay Pride Parade of 2012. For these are the two most current civil rights concerns of our time.
The juxtaposition of them along side each other is to highlight, although they might seems worlds from each other, they have a human bond. That tolerance is something of the past, today Respect is the new Black and our Shared Humanity is the New Rainbow Colours. To have these conversations side by will not only show our growth but our share humanity for respect and equality!

EMERGENCE How does a work of art emerge? Emergence denotes ideas of manifestation birth, revelation, becoming. In science, emergence articulates how complex patterns arise out of simple interactions; in sociology, it reveals the spontaneous order that can arise from a collective of chaos. How is emergence found in the creative process? How do these ideas relate to the artist and his/her work? How does meaning in a work of art suddenly (or gradually) emerge in the mind of the viewer?As part of the Uptown Arts Stroll, Emergence is a visual arts exhibition hosted by the Blooming Arts Festival where artists will present work that deals with ideas of emergence in its multiplicity of interpretations. Participation is open to artists of all ages living in Northern Manhattan.
