Last weekend the 8th BOS (Bushwick Open Studios) took place in my neighborhood. I saw a lot of great art and connected with really amazing people. Here are some of many favorites.
Also french photographer Delphine Diaw Diallo showed compelling work and had a beautiful book on display “The Gift”, a collection of womens portraits from several different bodies of work.

Drum Casket is an interactive performance and sound piece, centered around artist Amery Kessler’s invented instrument, Drum Casket. I have met both Amery and Mary Jane at the 2012 Inaugural World Peace Day in Linzhou China. We were all invited by the UN friends & Government of China to the First event for Peace and Art in China. Last night Amery and Mary Jane showed their Drum Casket Installation at the English Kills” Gallery in Bushwick, right around the corner from my studio. Drum whiz Sidy Maiga from Mali worked his magic and made us all dance.

I went to my friend Uscha Pohl’s “Very” Magazine 17th issue launch party in Tribeca. “Very” launched in 1997 and became one of the first fashion-art magazines on the market. I have followed the magazine’s evolution since the “very” first issue and shot for the magazine’s second issue. It is great to see the magazine is still going strong. My favorite article in this issue is “A Circle In The Sand” by Hugh Thompson that talks about discovery of 4000 year old mysterious tree formation called Seahenge.

At the GLAAD OUT Auction with my oldie but goodie image “Black Back”. I was very happy that GLAAD chose an image of mine for the aution and be able to contribute to the cause.
There was some outstanding art for sale. My favorite piece there was Alic Trossman’s “Wel Come”, it made me laugh out loud.
The main showcase piece for the live auction was Henri Matisse lithograph, that didn’t impress me at all and it went for half the market value.
Jordan Eagles work was the one that got the best bids. It was an absolutely gorgeous blood/copper/resin piece that looked like a stained glass window. When i looked up his work i was totally blown away. All his pieces are based on blood, but they have a power and depth that is incredible.
