I just had such a moment. A guy who works at the Javits center came by pushing a big tool cart, paused before this drawing, and said, “I feel like I could cry. I get it” and I asked him what he meant, and he said “She’s the heart of it. She’s the Mother Nature.” So now of course I feel Ike I could cry, because I’m like, wow, that never happens. He saw all the way through it. She’s the Baba Yaga, but she’s also filled with the papayas and lizards of my childhood backyard, in an echo of the many breasted Artemis fountains. The Baba Yaga is one of the many faces of the dark mother goddess, the one who might as soon save you as use your skull to build a fence around her house. She’s the crone. She’s the fierce side of Mother Nature, but no less the mother for it. ✨ (installation at the @ifpda in progress)
Look ma, I got my own ticket! It’s funny the things that stand out. When I saw this exhibition ticket for my show at MUCA, it felt like a milestone. Thank you for everything Munich! You have my heart. 4,000 people came through on opening night. Everyone was so engaged and friendly, asking amazing questions and sharing a lot. What a dream ✨ The show will be up for 5 months, with an extra wing opening up soon that contains a permanent installation element. Thank you to the team that helped make it happen @fksegismundo @wrestlingmask2 @bjoernheyn @kevin_luedicke, @philip_junk, @aidalovesmango @birdbirder the Mural Restaurant crew, the @cincycac, and of course, @mucamunich 💛

This kind of special thing happens when you paste up a block print on the street. The oil based printing ink is strong as hell, stronger than the paper, and so over time, the paper begins to deteriorate, while the ink remains.
Huh, I guess as soon as the weather turns chilly I start painting with the colors of a campfire. Preparing the next print release for early December. 🔥🍁❄️✨
Hey there all you print people, I’m super honored to be creating a wall for the @ifpda to highlight @metdrawingsandprints “Renaissance of Etching” exhibition which opens at the same time. The wall spans my print practice, connecting ancient etching techniques with modern takes on paper cutting and the block print. And Abby Schulz wrote a great piece about it in @barrons that’s linked in my bio today. ⚡️
