Art Exhibition I created & installed

Created all artwork, and independently curated, installed and ran this solo exhibition. The concept: legs as a foundation/anxiety-laden vignettes of a 21st century that is off-kilter, with apocalyptic foreshadowing.

Designed signage in Photoshop

Used Photoshop and typography education to meaningful select text and design layout. Made into vinyl signage that I then installed myself. Following are images of: the show itself, the installation of the show, closeups of individual sculptures, and the fabrication of these sculptures...

Install Day

I carefully planned and executed the installation of this show to tell a story. The layout is deliberate to support the narrative.

Deliberate and artful lighting

Lighting is one of the most carefully planned aspects of an exhibition.

Making very long legs is that are flush and stable was the tricky part.

For "Talking Without Listening"

Started with chairs found at a thrift store which I dismantled and sanded. Note the attractive eyeware.

The hardest part of these sculptures by far - making long, legs that extend at ridiculously skewed lengths and angles.
