Exhibitions with Catherine Opie, Alex Prager, Erwin Olaf, Kelli Connell, et al.
APRIL 2012 NEWSLETTER
I’m pleased to invite you to my upcoming exhibition and lecture at PHOTO CENTER NW April 12 & 13. This will be my first show in the verdant city of my youth, Seattle, Washington. I will be exhibiting 3 photographs and a video from the seriesOn Beauty.
The last six months have been transformative. My work was curated in exhibitions in the US and abroad with Catherine Opie, Alex Prager, Erwin Olaf, Bruce Weber and more. While in Europe for the Museum exhibition No Fashion Please! I had the priviledge of being featured on ARTE, a German TV program. No Fashion Please! received extensive press including Italian Vogue, Wall Street Journal, Die Presse and many more. For those who could not make it to Vienna but are interested to see the show, there is a gorgeously printed hardcover exhibition catalog available on ArtBook and Amazon.
Presently, I am in residence with the ART & LAW Residency Program run by VLA. We meet bi-monthly for critical seminars and will hold an exhibition this fall. Already, the residency is impacting my practice in unexpected and exciting ways. I look forward to sharing more about this experience and especially the new work with you all.
Thank you for your continued support.

No Fashion Please! reviews by Italian Vogue, Wall Street Journal, ARTE TV At KUNSTHALLE Wien Museum in Vienna, 19 international artists reject traditional notions of fashion, gender and beauty. 'From Jeff Bark's painterly and perverse “Flesh Rainbow” to Sophia Wallace's portraits of feminized male models, these daring and reckless experiments veer closer to the ceremonies and rituals of body art than to fashion.’ Download complete press here.
