2019 (Season 1)

2018 season doneLast year certainly whirled my wind. A ton of totally taser times. Some of the sprinkles whispered from table-blue…

General Projects / Los Angeles46796543_10155508762171511_9022706577760583680_oMy first solo gallery show in Los Angeles. Terrific opening, followed by [We brought our coffee], an evening of plays by Ms. Chelsea Rector and I, and closed it out with a session of Philosophy Coaching presented by Andrew Choate and me, myself.

Throughout the duration, we’ve had a grand time tossin’ some King Tackle (customized kubb) on a pitch set up in the adjacent, and very appropriately named, Outside Gallery. 46648905_10155514343256511_1359707889098293248_nMy favorite non-athletic game, thanks to one Mark Rice. After years, I finally built my own set (a little retouching needed), but Goatmother Industrial is the go to. Grab your own batons there, and Spray the Hooray! Though the show is no longer viewable on the walls, and clotheslines, and hooks, and pedestal, and floor, prints and original works from the core collection are still very fucking available in limited edition at: https://www.insertblancpress.net/collections/prints

Speaking of online purchasing power, rad pals at Pressure Club in Philly now have an online store set up where folks can find the weave dreaming I had the op to collaboratively pull there awhile back, plus other really terrific work from the printshop.weave dreamer 1

Play things… Ms. Chelsea Rector and I (DBA: P/Sicho Street Theatre Company) will be rolling out our newest experimental production “Frosted”, roughly based on the hit Disney film “Frozen“, a lil’ later this year. In the meantime, here’s video footage of our play “Shopping Problems” from 8.25.2018, shot by Mathew Timmons, featuring Andrew Choate, Jen Bruce, Rebecca Ramirez, Jacob and Joshua, with musical arrangement by Ang Wilson.

On the image making front moving forward, I’m getting back to it. Work with Crab Jackson on some mail box collab’s, plus forward movement style on a tased series with Rob Hessler. Continued, and we’ll tell you and all your idiot friends all about it!

Also! Do miss Skymall as much as Mark Rice and do?! Seriously doubt it, but that’s not going to stop us from saving Earth’s lower atmosphere from the unjustified drought of that particular blacked-out, pressurized cabin, dream machine. Hold your breath.

Speaking of droughts, Rebel Hand Press will see some action this year! Yes! Some fucking incredible projects on deck, and hopefully some $$$ to get them in print! Too much terrific material came through the studio door later last year. More on it soon, but it’ll be damn on… in the meantime, check out the current material. Yahweh knows we aren’t doing any fucking book fairs any time soon.

Sounds. There will also be more sounds.

Is the sun past the yard arm? If so, please tell me what that means.

*BTW’s, my birthday is over, but still need a Roomba… and a new job. Thx!

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:

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.

2013 (season 1)

Spring! Spring=Bring…

As in bring it, like as in continuing the first taser blasts of a new series of one off art books (check it at: http://rebelhandspress.com), along with a re-upped list of available works (https://tableblue.wordpress.com/available), photos, other debris, etc.

2013 rolled in with an absolutely bitchin’ feel, which still appears to be like rolling… gearing with some rad new collabs, solo actions (hopefully), sounds, and like other messes.

Action for certain…So yeah.

Until next. Get pitted, get ripped.

May Chewbacca be with you.
