home sweet home... opening images
Here are some images of my solo show which opened this weekend, Home Sweet Home, at Corridor Gallery Project Space. I was very happy with how the show looked in the space and the gallery folks did a great job installing my work. Considering that I did little to promote the show, as was unsure if I would be there due to forthcoming babe, and it was a GORGEOUS Sunday afternoon the opening had a great turn out. So let's take a stroll around the space...
I loved how the title with my signature and the faux cross stitch letters looked. Plus I was super excited to have a short interview up on the wall with it.
This is the first time that I have shown the photographs next to the embroidered works they inspire. It was actually a really nice way to see the work. We did this with another piece but somehow I forgot to photograph it. Viewers seemed to really enjoy being able to see the decisions that I made and how I edit and change the photographic image in my threading choices.
some newer photos. The nice thing about the opening was lots of people came up to talk to me and ask questions and give comments on the work. It is always a privilege to talk to new people about what you are doing.
a mock up of this project in the gallery space, with some photos of the original outdoor installation.
the first time I have showed video in a long time, I was really excited by how the installation looked. Makes me want to pick up my video camera again.
a re-install of a piece form about 2 years ago, and I still love this piece.
a glimpse of my new piece, better pictures of this tomorrow.
The show is up until May 22 and on Friday, May 21 we will have a closing reception and artist's talk with the other exhibit. I hope some of you can make it out to see the show the gallery is very easy to get to and find on the subway.
Gallery hours are:
Tuesday to Thursday 10 AM to 6PM
Friday and Saturday 12-6pm
