An exhibition titled Ground Floor features three of my pieces from  A Conversão de São Paulo. The show is up through March 22, 2015 at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, IL. More info can be found here.

Ground Floor brings together work by Chicago’s most promising emerging talent, offering a single destination to discover the spectrum of artists whose work demands to be seen and supported. Ground Floor—so named because it provides a crucial platform for young artists and fills the entire lower level of the Art Center—is an ongoing biennial project.

I was recently involved with the exhibition LINE UP: Pattern Type Taxonomy at Landmark Arts, the gallery of the Texas Tech School of Art. The show was focused around artists that worked in a typologic manner. The exhibit was co-curated by Peter S. Briggs and Joe Arredondo. Five pieces from Technically Intimate were included in the exhibition alongside works from Keily Anderson-Staley, Daniel Coburn, Warren Harold, Dona Schwartz, Robert Sebree, and Sarah Wilson.

Christopher Baker’s “Murmur Study”

This is a blog post I wrote for FOAM Amsterdam.

“Everything has been done before.” It is a quote, that if you are attending art school somewhere you will no doubt have heard at one time or another. I’m going to let you in on something: it’s not true. Continue reading
