so...

This recent series of nature photos lost me one Feedly follower so I guess I didn't do too badly. ("I thought that guy was gonna be ranting about new media and he starts posting these pretty pictures. Unsubscribe!")
"Normal" posting will resume as I gradually move some studio operations to "New York West" (a virtual New York that includes trees and clouds).
Trees and clouds may also continue.

From Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac:

The Scanner Paintings, a series conceived since 2010, are based on commercially available textiles, which are scanned, inscribed with the artist's signature and printed with UV ink on IKEA LINNMON table-tops. They show various types of leggings – sweatpants, track pants, Daisy Dukes and ripped denims. In each work, details such as waistband, pockets, zips and logos are combined, usually collage-like, on two boards hanging one above the other. Overlapping letters create word-plays and new meanings, or the logo is legible only by force of the branding typography. Independently of changing fashions, the sports labels are part of a contemporary pop culture and a collective memory to which the artist refers.

Idea for next show:
