art cell 43 boston 2018-08-18
saturday morning 0800 hours packing car in greenwich. another dog day of august. rains daily with high humid temps.... we speak of ideas of bubbles within bubbles, time and space, gender fluidity among plants, sea creatures and humans (represented by the 3 graces).
2018-08-20 monday morning recap. we had a very productive cell. after meeting at dunkin donuts across the street (sipping coffee and chatting until 3pm when our room is ready), we quickly started painting. we brought several paintings each to work on (and not swap later....although carl decided to take them all!), we mainly used cell 43 as a mere work session, and to expand upon the fluidity of gender and time space in bubbles. we basically just jammed for eleven hours...
we worked on the following:
kelly went home with a box of very samll unfinished paintings to embark upon connecting them so as to create larger takeover pieces for us to finish collectively.
we talked about trying an artcell in gloucester and also one next summer on long island near the old funny farm.
kelly will continue working on px and i will work to finish soda jerk and billy rubin (and others) until cell44 - location undecided
the three graces we have been considering for our work were all models from days past. they all had very interesting but tragic lives.
