Life is But a Dream @ Galerie Camille

If you’ve missed the news elsewhere, this month I’m so pleased to participate in a four-person show at Galerie Camille, Life is But a Dream. The show is conceptually arranged around participating artist Mary Fortuna, who invited myself, Scott Northrup, and Luzhen Qui to accompany her vision. Mary’s strong capacity as a curator shows up here, even as a participating artist; I had no idea how the four of us would show together, but it’s one of the most cohesive and interlocutory group shows I’ve ever been in — despite the fact that we all basically brought work in from our own corners with very little discussion about overall themes.

I didn’t quite have time to get works photographed before the show opened (so it will have to happen after, but before some of them move on to new homes), but I finally showed some Surrealist dollhouses I’ve been on for-frickin-ever, as well as some recent soft-sculpture stuffies that are maybe the best things I’ve ever made.

If you’d like to know more, here’s a nice little write-up by Kim Fay of Real Art Detroit.

Also, there is an artist talk coming up on Oct 9 — just a few spots left, but here’s the eventbrite link if you want to snag one.

The show will remain on view through Oct. 31, so get on down there if you have a chance! I’ll figure out some better images of work and more to come!

The secret to making it cohesive us to spit out an evocative but ambiguous title/theme, choose a small group of people whose work you love, and get out of everybody’s way. I’m allergic to any theme show that feels like homework. Thanks for being part of this. You’ve blown my mind to bits with this collection of work.
