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…

Familiar Laundry

November 23, 2018-January 18, 2019

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.

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.

trio

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!

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.

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 3.5)

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.

2015 (season 4 / BLUE friday sale)

t-b season 4 2015write, sew it seams that i totally skipped a season here. not surprising, as i’ve missed every season of every tv show that everyone has mentioned for the past 5 or so years, or maybe it’s a socal thing, as every day feels pretty much like the one before, and then, #elnino.

in more taser news, things are going swimmingly! my hair has been looking fab recently and there’s plenty of new work in the usual areas. like painting and photos and stuff.

+ still working / building w/ j. shelley jazz panther on our b.r.a.t. installation. ++  building blocks for some coollage curation in portland early next yr. +++, i believe it’s official that i’m bringing a collection of recent works titled “there’s a wrong time for everything” to the middle west this spring, with book and reading in tow.

re: books- rebel hands press (herein referred to as: rhp), just killed it w/ a super fun and successful launch for guan rong’s “spanish silver fox“, thanks to all and wccw for having. us!

and hiding right around the corner:

-“lil help?” – a sculptural schooling on subject ‘food’ w/ mark rice (who’s online shop spot is something you should probably better go check out: http://goatmother.storenvy.com/)

-hot fax-tion w/ mr. moerchen. jeffinitely gonna be taser.

-“street terms” – w/ e. + lunch skirt, about to go to press…

speaking of, the lunch skirt + the me will be back on the air til sometime next year w/ more “sooooooo…” via kchung radio.

more aural – de-dusting some quipment for a few upcoming sound making throw downs, looking fwd!

oh! the sale thing. well since most everything already more than reasonably priced, it’s less like a lie and more of a reminder.

btw’s- after a full recharge period, i’m back to spelling it out at http://taserfactory.blogspot.com/ more so frequently.

every time, every day, happy days in the life / happy scarf- jk.

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 2)

t-bseason 2 2014 webLet’s Get Vernal!

Springtime = Bringtime…like, Table-Blue style, with the bringing of the usual array of updates around the site, so peruse away. I mean, if you want.

A-Side: from that, looking forward to returning to the middle section for some upcoming collab action w/ Ms. Elaina Morgan and Siosi Build+Design, panning for some gold times in the Bay-Bay area with the always taser Justin Clifford Rhody, and fingers x-ed for some well-spent time in points back east…

B-Side(s): that, PRINTS are now available of select original works! This is way new, so if you see something, say something (that means inquire if interested). Also, Table-Blue recently branched over to the tumblr set (tis here, still needs some love), and yes, future Rebel Hands Press matter is working its way to the surface, but at the moment, we’re busy thinking about trees…
Hope you are too. Trees. Grab it hard and do it right.

Transformative Post-Experience Introspective Exploration is possible…when it’s Table-Blue Brand.

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.
