I’m so excited to be part the upcoming show, Is This Thing On?, presented by Gallery 1988 Melrose and Funny or Die. Each artist participating was given a stand up comic to base a piece on, mine being the lovable, Steve Martin.
I recently finished reading his book, Born Standing Up (which I highly recommend), which is an autobiography of his very earliest years doing stand up in the 1970′s. I decided to take the super minimalist approach to this piece, painting 2 small iconic objects on wood panels, and sealing them with resin. The show opens in LA on January 7th. rumor is that lots of the comics represented will be in attendance. Woot!
