"Anti-Empire" a still from my former studio window, thanks to Chia Fueki who is letting me continue to shoot from her studio, till the window is covered by the wall of Kiska's newest contribution to real estate in Williamsburg. They have informed me this will happen late May early June, so I am starting to organize the footage of the last 5 years documenting changes to the view of the Manhattan skyline. I have been recording 1 to 2 seconds on if not a daily than a weekly basis making a film that because of it's animated nature may be less meditative that Andy Warhol's "Empire" but with some duration probably not 8 hours.

Shepard Fairey Has a Posse


Great statement from Shepard Fairey on art, appropriation and fair use that speaks truth to power. I hope the haters who shout "plagiarism" will read it and think twice. The comments are fun too!

I'm sure a lot of people are wondering about my case with the AP over the Obama HOPE poster. I can't talk about every aspect of the case, but there are a few things I want to discuss and points I'd like to make.

I kinda love Hillary

This Blog used my painting of Hillary as their masthead.
The painting as seen on the card at my recent show at vertexlist is up for grabs at the upcoming
BAM Silent Auction was meant to flatter her. She is my Marilyn Monroe. I was trying to show the attractive, even sexy Hillary and was disappointed that she was not chosen VP.
I felt that pixilation was the gaze of unknowing. I felt that robotic resolution a good match for contemporary portraiture, and was not thinking about caricature but techno representation. Hillary I love you!
