baby smith
'shift no. 6' (pulp series)
found objects on board
25"x22.5"x2.5"
2007



i was recently accepted into a group show with altered aesthetics in minneapolis...i wish i could be at the opening, as this offering will be a feast for the eyes, i'm sure. non-local group shows are few and far between for me these days, as they usually involve entry fees, shipping, etc. but, this one sounded right up my alley.

i also think i might mount this recent piece (above) and submit it to cactus gallery's latest call for entries. this gallery's a happenin' joint, right in the middle of eagle rock, ca. (one of my favorite towns EVER) every time chuck and i've either been there or driven by on opening night, it looks like a frickin' frat party, minus the hazing. not that THAT qualifies a decent gallery, but at least it draws some traffic..

at any rate, i'm jazzed 'junk art' is getting some press....'bout bloody time.

oh wait. i just remembered old pieces of yours at ASL. they were larger. but you've been working small for some time so this is a little different, right?

well, my assemblage work you saw was prolly half this size, if that...so, maybe it's like remembering your childhood house being HUGE when it was actually just a hole in the ground?!!

thanks, you....and btw....did you GET my email regarding a possible collage show in our parts?

Found Peace
"Junk art" is the billboards polluting the city without our permission. Your art strips it of its horrid in your face ugliness and turns its bits and pieces into real art.

Re: Found Peace
aaaaw, thanks glenn!!!

you know, i actually thought about rewording the 'junk art' part...but 'found material art' just doesn't have the same ring. ;D
