About this project

I will rent studio time at the  wonderful Dieu Donne Papermill in New York City.  I was awarded a work lab grant in 2003 where I experimented in their studio for 7 days. I have wanted to return, mot only to experiment again, but also to edition a couple of the pieces I made during the residency.  The rainbows for instance. Everytime I show someone one of these they say "I want one!"  As well as the ladybugs.   

Dieu Donne is a papermaking studio in New York City that creates projects with artists. It is an amazing place. It is a not for profit organization. Tonight is the opening preview for the benefit auction preview. I have a work on view, as I have donated this year among many others. 

The studio rental for a day including one tech and materials is $1,150.  It goes to $1,000 per day if more that 2 consecutive days.  I think in 3 days I can accomplish making at least enough rainbows as promised in rewards,

It will a wonderful 3 day focused residency in this wet studio.

As I currently do not have a studio, taking it "out on the road" and exploring these kinds of projects is perfect.

I will also work with Kay Rock Screenprinting, as I've done some Dieu Donne works that also incorporate screenprinting, and in the past Kay Rock made a shirt for me which I'd like to run again, and will offer in the rewards.  Pictures to follow.

As some of my close friends know, I have been through a long, on going, difficult transition period.

Rather than try and find a project that addresses any of those overwhelming circumstances, keeping it positive with an intensive creative period is certainly always better in my book.

thank you for reading and thank you for your support.

Risks and challenges

if I am successful, I'll have a lot of rainbows to make in a short amount of time. I will hopefully be able to have a bit of time for experimentation as well.
