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.

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.

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.

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 1)

t-bseason 1 2014 webAwlright! 2014….So far plagued by vertigo, a broken foot, and reoccurring dreams of a fictional type of big cat (kinda like a mix between a mountain lion and an ocelot, which come in small, medium, and big) called “pahcos”…more on that later.

So far so weird, but things are pretty taser factory. Work is still going strong (like a pahcos), as seen in this belated new year update session!

Yes yes, updates updates, in many sectors on the site. check it check it.
Plus (+), for all the tumblr users out thar, we on it with the brand new http://table-blue.tumblr.com/

Aside from all that, coordinating currently with pals in the icy eastern parts for some exhibition styles in the upcoming warmer months. starting in the midwest, and then…onward.

In other newz- rebel hands press is still keeping it active, more active soon. Audio recordings, nose bleeds, burgeoning west coast action, and now accepting bitcoin.
Here ends this season’s poorly structured sentences, but srsly, still sold on 2014.

2013 (season 4 …kinda)

Happy post-Thanksgiving / #Thanksgivukkah / Jinglehorse / Drinksgiving / Whatever you do (did) / etc.
t-bseasonwinterjpgGearing up for our first quarter IPO with a preemptive, seasonal drone strike of updates including, but not limited to, new funny paintings, photos, books, and stuff. Sounds kinda same-y as previous post, but ‘NEW’ is always a keyword here… like the THE TAO OF JON, or that painting about the dude who smokes weed every morning in the parking lot of Walgreen, the ongoing American Shredding series, and so on. because, new.

This year has turned out so many taser factory things, but it’s not over yet. More action forthcoming… Not to mention some high and tidy collab plans in the USA and beyond…
Like Rebel Hands Press getting ill with some fax machines, some shows, a glamour-magazine-husband-hunting project, some sounds, some ???, and so much.

And though the Penny-Pacer blog came to an appropriately disappointing end, in the in-betweens, follow along w/ J. Shelley Harrison and I via our absurdist photo conversations at Still Lunch.
