Four Eyes: An Optical Collusion

image

I’ve been busy for the past couple of days getting ready for the next exhibition — Four Eyes: An Optical Collusion, An Exhibition of Collaboration.

That’s meant literally dusting off older collaborations TVAA did for the Modern Art in 2010 and for Tour de Fat, as well as receiving, arranging, and yesterday hanging — with Sue Latta’s usual expertise and a very cool laser level — the whole show including the new work.

I framed the mock-up of the wall of panels which we hung on the outside of the stairwell of the Modern Hotel for our first collaboration. There were 60 panels in all, either T’s, V’s, A’s or self-portraits.

These are some of the actual self-portrait panels:

And these are some of the actual T’s, V’s and A’s in a grid format just like our TVAA logo:

The other 16 pieces are hung in the atrium…

and the open hall.

Here’s my collaboration with Barbara Bowling, “The Abdication of the Sylvan Beauty Queen on the Occasion of Her Epiphany” right next to Mike’s collaboration with Lauren T. Kistner, their acrylic painting “Getaway Bike.”

The Opening Reception is tonight from 5:00 to 8:00pm at the offices of Boise State Public Radio at 220 E Parkcenter in Boise. I hope I see you there!
