micro-SCREENING: Studio Visit micro-doc hosted at The Nashville Scene

Fall 2015

The Nashville Scene has been hosting some of the recent micro-docs.

The Studio Visit short films are a series of micro-documentaries that focus on conversations I have with contemporary artists and cultural spaces in the South and beyond. They are an extension of my studio practice and came about as I began questioning my own work, and the ever-shifting role of artists in society.

LIFE EVENT: LA Storage Unit

My rationale was that if Baldessari could do it, and if Richter could do it, then I could do it. In August I compassionately put down a number of paintings held in my Los Angeles storage unit.
The process was planned and documented, complete with cuts, scrapes, bruises, and receipts.
