urban markings

artwork by alexander stevenson

i've been meaning to link to a very intriguing artist brought to my attention via karen d'amico, whom i e-met through carol es. his name is alexander stevenson (based in england, like karen). he archives societal discards and often times fills in the gaps by fixing them visually with great care, much like an archeologist mending bones buried by years of time and neglect. the images are so familiar to me....it's my day's work in many respects...canvassing the landscape for clues, wondering how certain things got where they did and who and how many people touched them before. (i know what you're thinking...WASH YOUR HANDS BABY!) but, this kind of excavation is so fascinating to me, the uncovering of 'artifacts' as stevenson puts it..

samples from his archive

Hiya girlie,

I just drove by Chuck's set. They were filming just a couple blocks away from my home. Guess I'm not able to post anything on Chuck's live journal site cuz it doesn't accept anonymous users. I was tempted to crash the set but was thinking never mind, wat's da point if Becky's not gonna be there. Anyway, hopefully I'll see ya soon. Buh-bye!!

Madison :D

ooooooh...YOU SOOOOO shoulda crashed giiiiiiirl!!!!!! word has it they nixed the eagle rock dates (bracka fracka) so YOU GO and pester the heck outta chuck if he's there tomorrow. just ask for 'chuck in video,' that's what i do. they'll all be gossiping about chuck's OTHER girlfriend, hee hee. i don't know his schedule for sure, but he's gonna be on stage for the last leg.

i still think we should hang out in eagle rock one of these days....film or no film.

oh, and ricky and megan are hosting a get together in a few weeks and they specifically asked to invite YOU along....i'll send details when i know more..

and chuck doesn't allow anonymous posters...guess he had a few wackos (prolly me?) anyway, i'm a sucker for 'comments,' so stalkers have free game on my blog...
