2017 (Season: Final)

t-b market crash 2017Wow. So much taser action from (or related to) la table de studio bleu these past months, I’m just gonna have to break down…

Rebel Hands Press: The West Coast office has been way activized by way of these 2 new limited edition releases:

rhp profile

“NOTE TO SEA” – a book where the words of Salt Lake City based writer Aaron Beasley + imagery ala Jeremy Kennedy (me) find a common alee. Core components. Beautiful take on it from the ever damn on eyes of The Unwrinkled Ear hisself.

“A Horse With A Name” – 68 pages of experimental poetic formation by Justin Clifford Rhody. A terrifically timed and much desired extension to his conceptually brilliant photographic series “Only Chance Is Fair”.


Still slinging copies of recent titles such as “Street Terms: Vol. 2” w/ Elaina Morgan, “Lil’ Help? …” w/ Mark Rice, and “ARThritIS FLOCKING” kits by J. Shelley Harrison. All in house!

FMSMPRC: When we put something together, it’s gotta be a gem! Exhibit A: Soft Goals by: teasips. Audio art care, words of the age (THX: Ms. Chelsea), artful all around. Full about it in the release edition below, but we’re still rolling limited tape, with a live party in the works (w/ a “Z”).softgoalscassette4_sm

Collabs: Continuing work w/ Rob Hessler and Mr. Brennan. Looking Sharp! Also, the T-B shop is currently hosting some works by hermit artist bestie, Crab Jackson Like these super limited edition card sets + some pen-pal original art book meanderings. Check, check.

Studio Table-Blue (Home Office): Aside from aspiring to Bob Bert hair status in the spare moments, as evidenced above, we keep rolling out work. Currently feeling the effects of a performance bug. Short, snappy pieces, improvised in designed monotony with emotional flare. Awkward hugs to Ms. Jade Quinn for partnering up for the most recent at Collective Arts Incubator!

no thank you _2

New visual work up on here, and dialing in the storefront with new original pieces and archival prints for the: “Unemployed For The Holidays” sale event, happening now!… See something, don’t see something… just shout.

Everyday, Every time, Happy days in the life. May chewbacca be with you.



Very excited to announce that this charmed aural component of last years “Hotelevisions” installation is now a physical audio art element!softgoalscassette3_smSoft Goals was recorded live by the artist herself, in performance at “Hotelevisions”, a group art installation at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel (room #1157) in Los Angeles, CA. 10.22.2016.
14724479_10210911217846649_664489225005394915_nFrom her self-styled bed fort, Teasips casually captures and processes everything from the intimate crackling of a melting bucket of courtesy ice, to the classes surrounding movements in air conditioned ambience.
Her thoughtful employment of modular synth and subtle flute expressions guide the energy in the room.

Angela Frances Wilson (aka:  Teasips) is a Los Angeles-based composer/improviser. Her outpouring of work; be it solo, as one-half of the duo Electric Sound Bath, or any of her collaborative endeavors spread electronic and acoustic forms with a vibrant fluidity, sprinkled in new mystic energies.

50 minute cassette (white shell) / j-card + printed vellum insert / liner notes by Chelsea Rector.

Track list:
-Side Enter: 25 minutes
-Side Exit: 25 minutes
Edition of 33.

2017 (post season 2)

2017 season 3Is this a Percocet? Taser. This’ll be brief…

Just returned from an incred mini-residency / relax at “Pressure Club” (the terrific, stacked up Philadelphia HQ of Goatmother Industrial + Ms. Lauren)… after hitting a lovely marina scene in MD. Learnt some stuff! Lil’ evidence below:

weave dreamer 1

Weave Dreamer – Dry Point + Silkscreen on Paper. Edition of 10

Rethought my ongoing “Shadow Instinct” project as Cyanotype Prints. Gotta a small batch of them done (w/ exit assist by the hosts becuz, no sun).

shadow instinct 3

Shadow Instinct #3 – Cyanotype Print

Up on here properly once I nail the packaging for the sets!

Then set off to the homeland, where Bengela and I applied the laying on of hands to help install this rad Crab Jackson action.


Mr. Jackson’s website, archival prints, and more single edition artbooks coming soon!

Back at studio table-blue, after a final blast off with some true besties. Gearing up, follow-ups + getting weird via collab works w/ the folks: Goatmother, Rob Hessler, Mr. Brennan, E. Morgan, Crab…

Justin Clifford Rhody’s “A Horse With A Name” very forthcoming from Rebel Hands Press + bound work by Aaron Beasley, and audio material by Teasips. Almost about that time.

Trying to tidily update the site, store, etc. WIP (done with that hashtag the moment I saw it). But yah, some freshness above.

To all the best hosts I know. So chain link! (Just picked that up… it means taser factory)… or is it chain-length? hmm. I’ll ask.


2017 (Yeah Season Yeah)

2017 season 2 300

I hate windy days, but here’s some stuff I like…

cover wall grass

4 starts, Elaina Morgan + I successfully launched the latest in our ongoing “Street Terms” art book series (now or soon to be cataloged in the MoMA library archive!) at Collective Arts Incubator here in LA, with huge helpings of hands from The Unwrinkled Ear + Ms. Summer.


Corey Fogel / Laura Steenberge / Andrew Choate

Like a years worth of work on our end towards this project all went down like a well executed drone strike, due in very, very huge part, to a lovely line-up of performers, sound-makers, voices: Jay Erker, Country Animal, the trio of Fogel/Steenberge/Choate, + E got in on the action duo mode with 1/2 of Electric Sound Bath (Mr. Brian Griffith).

Screen Shot 2017-05-03 at 7.18.39 PM

Jay Erker leading the choir.

Pretty rad setup… Everyone involved presented works utilizing the actual street terms from the books (see, collaboration. ya know?!), + we had the whole gallery to ourselves, so a bunch of the performers had visual work installed as well!

-“Street Terms: Vol. 2” New York launch in the works…

-“Soft Goals” by: Teasips… From last year’s “Hotelevisions” installation at the Bonaventure Hotel in DTLA. Working with co-curator Chelsea Rector + Ms. Sips herself to construct a fine vessel for this cracklingly calming performance, recorded live from a bed fort. (Audio Cassette)

-“A Horse With A Name” by: Justin Clifford Rhody… Currently strapping the tacs n’ the saddle for this collection of phrase poetics, gleaned trackside and curated by the artist. (Rebel Hands Press)

Meantime… Stomping further along the coast to coast collab art trails with Rob Hessler and Mr. Brennan, strong pieces… getting stronger.


studio table-blue (north wing). “wip’n”.

Also, been slow-boiling some bizarre original art books with Crab Jackson, who I will be hanging with / help hanging some brand-fucking-new work with for his solo exhibition this summer, after tracking back to the middle-west from Philly where I get to go realtime collab style with the Goatmother Industrial at their new HQ.

Lots of collab-oh audio recordings here, yet to be tested. New jams w/ Yosuke Kitazawa + recently waded out into the waters w/ visiting saxophonist/composer Jean-Luc Guionnet… bout to check the levels on that last minute Monday nite jam…

Happy with paintings this yr. to date (odd), so that section is upped herein. Not a lot, but just enuff… Have new sculptural goals getting caught in the vision web. Soon. iHope. We’re gonna need more bags.

Whenever any of the above’s go down, we’re gonna celebrate it…

The wind died slowly.


2017 (Season 1)

2017-season-1Terrific. That’s over…

Time to sew some new fields of phase atop a year’s worth of some very taser wins, and plow under a few finely crafted defeats…

Breaking out the barn glue here with a few adjustments + additions, including a bit of pho-to-graph-ic evidence from the Hotelevisions group art event I helped curate with Ms. Chelsea. A roomful of fab artists for certain (soundtrack from the evening hopefully forthcoming)!

Also got around to setting up ye olde online shoppe. A fully functioning hovel harnessing a few fun items. Get the reliability and absurdity you’ve come to trust from Studio Table-Blue, now at the click of a button.

Speaking of the studio (conveniently located right off Sunset Blvd in LA, CA… within quick walking distance of 2 ((TWO)) massage parlors)… still rolling in (more organized) heaps of all around works, as well as maintaining rad collabs with the Goatmother, Rob Hessler, Crab Jackson, Mr. Brennan… the list is growing. Unveiled when the times are right.

flocking_20kit_originalWhile “Lil’ Help?” and the biege pyscho-dynamics of “The ARThritIS Flocking Kit” (pictured above) are still stronging it up HERE, new spring era books from Rebel Hands Press are in the works. “Street Terms: Vol. 2” by Elaina Morgan + Jeremy Kennedy and Justin Clifford Rhody’s “A Horse With A Name” coming soon!

Look for us live in a few months…

Oh yeah, this year’s gonna be a bag of torched junk as well. Hope you know that… just put avocado on it.


2016 (season 3.75)

2016 season 375.jpgWas recently informed that the season had changed, so here’s some new news… Things are real tasered up, and in all next levels of production. Officially “jazzed” about the weekend of October 21st-23rd…

Friday: Lighting things off, Rebel Hands Press will happily be present on night one of Open Press 2016 hosted by Insert Blanc Press + Outside Gallery14469489_1124268504333767_8190052560937208727_n.jpg

Excited to share this terrificness w/ so many amazing folks + fun. For our part, we’ll have 2 shiny new publications/art objects on hand:

-“ARThrITIS Flocking Kit” – by j. shelley harrison.

“Lil’ Help?: A Charming yet Challenged Version of the American Masculine Kitchen” – by: Mark Rice + Jeremy Kennedy.


Featured in the evenings sched of readings and performances (Check out this line up, srsly.), j. shelley harrison will be presenting a new piece, and heads up for a tray pass style presentation of several Charming yet Challenged hors d’oeuvres!

Saturday: “Hotelevisions” A secret show in a hotel room curated by Chelsea Rector, j.shelley harrison, and I!

This incredibly ephemeral event will feature a variety of work from installation, performance, sound art, to beyond. While working in tandem, each artist checks in with their respective hotelevisions to transform these comfy confines.

Featured Artists: Brody Albertj. shelley harrisonJoey Cannizzaro, Michael ShroadsSammi Skolmoskitea_sips, Zach Taylor.

Sunday: To close out the wkend, Artist Guan Rong will be doing a performance for the finale of Open Press, which will be held at Poetic Research Bureau. Another amazing line up, and we’ll be there w/ some remaining copies of her book “Spanish Silver Fox”.

Aside from all that action, site updates here in all the right places. +, “Shadow Instinct”, a new project I’m excited about which explores learned behavior (#flockingdoeswork)!

Keeping up the slow roll of collab by mail works w/ the likes of Crab Jackson, Joshua Brennan, and recently Rob Hessler. Good times.

On the sound-making front, Yosuke Kitazawa and I are still sitting on some remaining copies of this tape we did for Friends & Relatives Records


(think they may have ran out, hit us up here!)… Motivated by some recent jams and casual performings w/ some incredible players, we hope to be throwing down more and more over the next few months.

Link happy fam – Hakuna Matata.


2016 (season 3.5)

2016 mid-summer knights.pngSummer arrived with a ding. bleh, trying to file all the work, studies, ideas, and general whatev’s away in their proper places here at table blue has become a royal pain. How dare these seasons.
And-uhhh yeh, some updates herein, the usual zones… new work!!
…and more new work, in the works, all the times! Building now to thunder down in the future days…
Like the charming, yet bizarre food book collab w/ Goatmother Industrial...
backside heelflip to grind 2_sm
(sneak peek)
Which will tastefully premiere in October at this year’s Open Press event here in los angeles, along at least one more new knotch in the Rebel Hands Press belt… details forthcoming.
Amidst all the lackluster ______ this year has coughed up since awakening, we found “brexit”, which crashed straight to the bottom of the incredible portmanteau list frequently groomed and manicured by ms. E. Morgan and i.
Aside from portmanteaus, we also dabble in creating clever and humorous terms formed from disentangled sets of lettering found in the streets and alleys of our respective cities. Bound as a series titled Street Terms, volume II is currently rising to a slow boil…
SOOOOOOOO many ridiculously rad collabs going in/out the door here! very taser workings with J. Brennan, Crab Jackson (with homespun titles such as “legst” and “bagst”), burgeoning action between Rob Hessler and i, connecting existential dots w/ ms. E.K.D., pyschogeographing from heart emoji to heart emoji w/ j. shelley harrison all the whilst her + i plan an exciting ?mystery? show with LA’s own ms. Chelsea…some(thing) to do w/ hotels… and their rooms.
most of which will bubble and explode in the coming months!
In the meantime, check into some any seasonal vibes by Yosuke Kitazawa + i…
Fresh now on cassette from friends and relatives records, 29 minutes of how we guessed you’d like it! doing it live in a city near you (in the global sense) sooner than later…
report: everything is for sale.

“there’s a wrong time for everything.”

Gearing up for an upcoming whirlwind run through the middle-west!

flyer 1 flat sm

Dialed in this drone strike of new and recent works at the Fell Building… Bloomington, IN… and/or however far the casualty radius expands. Along w/ this action, fellow traveling artist/collaborator j. shelley harrison and i (kneeshy) will be taking the day before to explore/expand new work involving “flocking” and the open-ended, open-entry band Arthritis, in very off-site ways… details forthcoming.

More Below:


an exhibition by jeremy kennedy
with reading by the artist, introduction by artist j. shelley harrison.

Compiled from four distinct, intertwining series, There’s a Wrong Time For Everything selects 33 pieces of new and recent works completed on paper.

Neon migraines. Masculine vulnerability. The feminine stance. From text-heavy, paint-starved one-liners to paragraph-laden collage, these works exemplify Kennedy’s knack for wry interpretation and genius misunderstandings.

Some years’ worth of careful, cynical, inward, outward, behavioral observations have been slammed up against the artists’ lexicon of humor and absurdity to create his favorite version of the world: where sorority girls and ex-princesses do Rule.

The artists’ heroines, like his jargon, are ruthless. Kennedy’s heroines have not simply been mused upon—-they command his existential dread. With their bratty stares and sassed hips, they also seem to destroy him. Yet there’s something in their stance that the artist trusts, and he allows himself to be held amongst the pain-waves of failed life formulas, invented personalities, love and lack, anxiety.

In the rare image, both text and heroine have disappeared. The thought is finished.

In addition to the collection, two books will be on hand. Anti-Fantasy, an extremely limited edition set of bound giclee prints featuring selected material from the show, as well as There’s a Wrong Time for Everything, an extension of the presented works built with the written word and found imagery.

A short reading by the artist from There’s a Wrong Time for Everything will occur at the opening.
