Dangerous Waters Exhibition (Charlotte, NC)

My most recent exhibition, Dangerous Waters, was held in Charlotte, North Carolina, at C3 Lab. The exhibition included 40 photographs from the book. The photographs, all signed and editioned, were installed in sequence and grouped according to the four sections of project: Northeastern Tributaries, Southeastern Tributaries, Central and Western Reservations, and the Tennessee River. 

The installation included a wooden map made by furniture designer and woodworker Jeffrey Barninger and an eight foot Dangerous Waters sign created by Barninger and ACSM's Glen Nocik.

This exhibition is ready to travel and will be installed again in June 2018 at Crate Project in Hendersonville, NC.

Locust Projects Smash & Grab - Miami, FL

I'm honored to be a participant in this year's Smash & Grab at Locust Projects. I am a fan of Locust Projects' commitment to experimentation without the weight of commercial viability or desire. It is an incubator for risk-taking and conceptual thinking. 

If you're interested, you can take home the lovely painting, Prevents Passage. I made this painting in the spring of 2017 as part of my Spatial Change/Social Equity series. You can see it prior to shipping below.

New photogrphy installation in Charlotte, NC

 
 

Come see a brand new photographic installation on Friday, August 4 at Goodyear Arts in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

As Goodyear Arts says goodbye to its N College Street location, I want to contemplate the future development and revitalization plans of Charlotte's First Ward. The building in which I've worked for the past year and its immediate surrounding area are crucial to the city's North Tryon Vision Plan and many of the structures and lots are marked for demolition. 

I believe that one of the best methods to contemplate this future is to bear witness to what is currently there. My two photographs provide an opportunity to see the building's current surroundings as if it was already gone. 

Come join us:

Goodbye Goodyear
516 N College Street
6 - 9 pm

An evening of installation art and thought-provoking performance.
