Before heading off to Tucson and Beijing, I had the pleasure of meeting with Dion Tan from Artinfo in my studio to discuss my studio practice and upcoming projects. I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to speak with her about the preparations for projects I am working on including MOCA Tucson, Beijing, and the newest sculpture – the “multicolored cube.” (The cube will be making its official debut at the Tierney Gardarin Gallery booth at EXPO Chicago in September.)
Most importantly, I love the visuals that Dion was able to capture in my studio – especially with the light – and the story she has told.
I invite you to view the video below and to check out entire story here.
Back in April, I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Enrique Macotela and Raiza Larios at the studio of Aldo Chaparro. They recently visited New York and I had the chance to show them my studio. I showed them all the projects I am working on including MOCA Tucson, a site-specific installation in Beijing, and my newest cube, which they both loved. It was a great visit!
I am looking forward to our next visit in November when Florencia and I travel to Mexico City for their wedding!
Unlike any other sculpture I have completed before, BA, 2013 began with the more painterly aspects I have been incorporating into my mesh sculptures. I then carved the mesh into this final shape. Finally, I attached the grid on top, inverting the idea that I had explored with my cube sculptures where it was the grid that dictated the form of the mesh. BA measures 30 x 28 x 25 inches.

I am very happy to share my newest group of sculptures. These were created using aluminum mesh, poured paint, and include the addition of sprayed paint. You can see how this changes the depth and richness of the sculpture.

I have been working hard in the studio these past few months and I am very happy to unveil my latest pieces: the cubes.
Each cube measures about 2 feet by 2 feet, made up from 1/8 inch pieces of bass wood in the form of a gridded structure. I then cut into the wood, placing the aluminum mesh along those angular edges. Finally, I pour the paint.
