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).

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!

Upcoming…

-“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.

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.

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.

2015 (Season Springed)

t-bseason 1 2015 f

The cold thing, the clock thing, and now the spring thing…

On the verge of some super-serious site adjustments. Hopefully.

In the meantime, even if it’s broken, don’t fix it… just put some avocado on it… in the form of new action fromth Table Blue Studio.

Original works, giclee prints, photos, “other”.

“Hot and Ready”, like all the Little Caesars boxes that litter my neighborhood.

Onward Styles:

So many collabs!!! New sounds, exploring the culinary realm w/ the Industrials at Goatmother, B+W photo weirdness, posting up w/ Crab Jackson, water-jet cutting w/ Ms. J. Shelley Harrison, woodblock printing, finding new and excitingly complicated methods of coast-to-coast collab w/ Mr. Moerchen, absurdist how-to videos, decoder rings, hmm…what else…

Rebel Hands Press is super active, and we’re apparently “jazzed” about it… look for us this summer.

A pile of new sculpture materials just screaming at me from the other room,… things are srsly closing in.

Get vernal, and may Chewbacca be with you.

2014 (Season FALL)

t-b3Fall!

But first, the summer(y)… Things got a lil’ garbage claw for a bit. Some things got srsly derailed. Sooooo…the last 1/2 of summer was decidedly tired date. Still managed to sprinkle up some work, woks, lotsa soup and salad, sound-making, seeing, sawing, scoring, shooting, screening, and so on and such. Alotta which can be seen here because seasonal site updates. More to come soon!

Aside from finishing off some of that noise, there is plenty on the platter… some 3-D, some 3-dimensionals, funny foods, piano preparations, uhm…books, a big archiving project (as soon as i acquire a new scanner), more collab action, and some other things will happen too.

Big hugs and thanks to everyone who put things together, and helped on some huge wins!

I hope it rains this year.

Fall!
