Great opening! Enjoyed meeting new people and so in love with the small southern town, Tifton.
So i'm absolutely terrible at updating this blog. But here are some snapshots from my participation in the symposium.
So happy and thankful to be part of Vered Gallery's, Art on the Edge and artMRKT Hamptons! Here is a photo of all the crates waiting for pickup.

So excited and honored to be part of this show. I'm looking forward to seeing it in person towards the end of the month when Laura and I road trip up to New York to deliver another piece to Ms. Loreen Arbus, (such a sweet, kind, and endearing woman) who purchased Into to Maplewood. I'm so happy that the piece found a good home. I'm also looking forward to meeting Sir Shadow while Loreen hosts an event for him while we are in town. I've never been to New York outside of the airport and I'm just overflowing with excitement. On another note, the Lark Book, 500 Figures VOl. 2 comes out tomorrow! Feeling super blessed.
Starts: Saturday, 2/15/2014

Vered Gallery is pleased to present #NSFW: BODIES, a group exhibition featuring figural works by both renown Modern Masters and Contemporary artists, established as well as emerging. NSFW, the internet acronym for "Not Safe For Work" playfully eludes to Vered's Contemporary spin on traditional nudes and portraiture, subject matter commonly not considered appropriate for public viewing. Included in this exhibition are paintings, photographs and sculptures by Milton Avery, Willem de Kooning, David Hockney, Steven Klein, Eric Fischl, Larry Rivers, Man Ray, Robert Mapplethorpe, Ray Caesar, Colin Christian, Michael Dweck, William King, Adam Handler, Adam Miller, Ashley Maxwell, Tyler Pilote, Peter Buchman and Jessica Lichtenstein among others.
Highlights in this exhibition include Larry Rivers' lyrical triumph, Ochre Dance, an homage to Matisse's seminal masterpieceLa Danse. Case Study #13 image no. 01, a stunning photographic portrait of actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a modern family in crisis, by celebrated Fashion Photographer Steven Klein. And, Untitled 1969 (woman in high heels), a unique painted armature for an unrealized sculpture by Willem de Kooning.
The unique perspective of this exhibition allows for the viewer to observe art of the nude and portraiture through the eyes of some of today's most exciting new talents alongside works of the Modern era from which it was inspired. One can see clearly see the evolution of the nude through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries both aesthetically and conceptually, as one moves from Man Ray's portraits of Kiki de Montparnesse (1928), to Bert Stern's iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe (1962), and from David Hockney's cubist, photo collage rendition of actress Theresa Russell (1983) and finally onto Jessica Lichtenstein's frolicking, computer generated lovelies. The viewer will witness dramatic shifts in how New Contemporary Art movements relate to the subjective concept of physical beauty and understand how today's radical new ideas were informed by Modernism while at the same time trying to reject it's tradition, just as Modernism was by Classicism of the nineteenth century.
Also on display will be work from Marilyn Minter, Hunt Slonem, Hans Hofmann, Tim Conlon and many more.
Excited that on 2/4/14 the 500 Figures in Clay Volume 2 book comes out and the above lady is getting published. You can preorder it on Amazon.
