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!

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”.

Book13_sm

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.

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.

part0

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.

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…
tape_sm
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.
