Discipline

Pieces from my most current art series, Discipline: Sex Lives of the Primitives, which are all-natural sex toys, were last on display during March, 2014, in Brooklyn.
Read more about that here.

 

 

AJS: An Innocent Symbol

New works in a continuing attempt to help cleanse the public conscious of the current negative connotations behind the ancient symbol known as the swastika. Pieces debuted at Superchief Gallery (Manhattan, NY), March 2013, and were last exhibited in Santiago, Chile, Jan of 2015 (at Kasa Ecolety).

Kiss Me, John (aka) John Waters' Moustache

Presented to director John Waters, for his south Florida performance of This Filthy World, July 28th, 2012.
It is a 5 ft, polyester moustache, formed out of 600 broom bristles on a 6 ft x 1.5 ft pink canvas, titled Kiss Me, John, and created, with the same response in mind, as most would have to a Waters' film: partial disgust, while equally giving you the giggles.
The piece is now owned and archived by the Waters' estate.

A Catastrophe Upon Delivery

In October of 2012, I created the mail art project, A Catastrophe Upon Delivery.

It was free to anyone, and all one had to do was reach out.

Discarded Religion (Found)

An older, yet continuing, project using discarded religious items I've found throughout my life.
See more here.

 

 

Dada Poems

The original and unique piece, titled Dada Poems, on an experiment I did with the Dada poetry technique was finished last year.
One was able to download a zip file of the entire work, including photos, poem scans and the complete written pieces, but it is unavailable, as the article is currently in issue #3 of Abraxas: International Journal of Esoteric Studies
.
Read more about this project here.

A smaller, all-paper version was limited to five copies, and contained the six page article, including a transcript of the poems, and the forward by Dr. Vanessa Sinclair, Psy.D.
Each came with a distinctively drawn sigil inside, and the written works were printed on two types of paper, bound by a black bow, though no images were made available.
An edited version of the article, titled Do Me Dada Style, is available in the third edition of Abraxas, minus the original images or Dr. Sinclair's forward.

 

 

The Tarot

This one was just for local friends, but you can check it out here.

 

 

Tattoo Nightmare

I had a unique art piece (in the sense of the type of work I normally do) sell at a charity auction.

It was in NJ for Big Brothers / Big Sisters, and titled Tattoo Nightmare. Feel free to read more here.
Time donated has as much worth as money donated.
Do whatever you can, when you can, but please do something.
