A compendium of craft masquerading as art, art masquerading as craft, and craft extending its middle finger.

No Sleep 'Til Ohio

The other Craft Monster at Mixed Greens is Susan Graham, a fascinating multidisciplinary artist with a background in....Chemistry! It all makes sense when you look at her work...obsessively pierced porcelain, sugar and egg "subtleties", and cyanotypes of dream imagery. Her work revolves around memory and insomnia, thoughts swirling like a tornado when bedtime arrives. Her new show, "Beautiful Ohio" revolves more around memories of childhood and notions of retrofuturism. Again, the show closes Saturday, February 4th, so rush to see it if you live in NewYorkLand. If this work has its roots in insomnia, I sure hope somebody slips her a No Doz.

I recently saw this Crash Bonsai website and thought they were awesome. Thought you might enjoy them too.

I always enjoy your Blog from a long, long ways away here in Tasmania.

Thanks a bunch.
