I currently have work at Land of Tomorrow gallery in Louisville, KY. Five separate exhibitions opened February 3 and will be up through April 3. My exhibition entitled “My Pleasure” includes a full room installation with four separate, but related gestural sculptures. The wooden planked floor is walkable by the viewer and the small, continuous kinetic sculptures include a “pile” of soap bubbles growing from a knot in the floor, a cigarette resting on the floor boards subtly emitting a plume of smoke, a whizzing piece of black wax hanging from the ceiling in a manner reminiscent to the motion of a housefly and a brown paper bag on the wall regularly expands and contracts.
The four other exhibitions included Hollywoodland by Amanda Church, Prodrome by Taylor Baldwin, A Colder Friday by Jacob Isenhour and Willard Tucker and works by Kamrooz Aram, Jimmy Baker, Sheila Pree Bright, Cheryl Dunn, David Ellis, Evan Hecox, Harmony Korine, Barry McGee, Aaron Morse, and Clare E. Rojas all Courtesy of Country Club Projects (more info).
My next show is at Cobalt Studios in Pilsen. The show runs from Friday, June 10-Saturday, June 25, but my piece will just be happening (yes, happening, not installed) on Friday, June 17.
Hecho en Casa/ Home Made
Curated by Alberto Aguilar and Jorge Lucero
A program of events that verge on acts of domesticity. Behavior that touches upon ideas of home, the local, hospitality, homemade-ness and the personal, all within an exhibition space. This series of events will be accompanied by a collection of objects and artworks that each invited artists found to be in conversation with the ideas of â€œhomeâ€. These objects can be viewed during the scheduled event hours.

Trinity is fifty and has an art exhibition to celebrate! Last week I installed “Light Weight” in the new Seerveld Gallery. The space fit the piece really well and electricity was available in inconspicuous ways (thank you!). I will post a new video and photo’s when I go back for the closing.
Several friends and classmates are in the show as well. Sam McCune, Faith Veenstra, Cousin Tim, and many talented designers from Cultivate Studios. It will be fun to see the show fully installed and maybe (hopefully) run into some of these people of my past.
The closing reception for the show is October 3 at 6:30.
Last Friday, the Material Afterlife exhibition opened at the UICA in Grand Rapids in which my piece, Styrofoam #6 was included. I created and critiqued this piece last semester as 7 small hanging sculptures composed of deconstructed styrofoam beads which I stitched together with black thread. For this exhibition, I combine the seven smaller sculptures into one with even more time and black thread!
