Modern Arts Museum of Fort Worth

Living in Austin, I certainly get my mad dose of art - art in every notion fathomable. But I have to say, every time (ok, it's only been two times) I go to Fort Worth I am in serious art geek mode. The whole vibe of their art district or whatever they call it is great. My visit to the Modern Arts Museum was killer. Two videos I took - showing a glimpse of the immense collection/diversity they were currently showing. 
video
Sean Scully. The "holy mother of this moment" factor of this exhibit was not lost on me.
video
Kenny Scharf. The "holy shit I am in the most amazing New York apartment closet ever" was not lost on me. One of the best sensory overloads I have ever experienced. The video is sketchy because I had to sneak it, but I had to video this unbelievable stimulated moment of everything that is good and right and good and perfect and utter chaos and good. And did I mention, good?

Play both videos at the same time for the best viewing.

The Seventh Motel

A recent commission piece turned out so rad. Love it so much, one of the biggest pieces we've made. Had a hard time getting a picture without reflections. "The Seventh Motel."
Installed right over her amazing couch (and dog!).
A couple of close ups of the various cameos.

Custom House Numbers Gone Good

I love custom pieces. Your ideas, new numbers, new shapes, new ideas make for some of the best moments.

Black on white - super striking. Super bold.
 This custom order used some of my most favorite numbers. Modern, yet tricky.
 This piece, really stretched my mind and my ability. Had to really think and work to make it happen - and wow - it really worked. One of my absolute favorite plaques I have ever built.
It's the size of a toddler, and has the presence of a bull at the running of the bulls. It really is amazing -- and owns everything!!

A batch of address plaques

Just a few of my favorite June plaques. I used to think that every plaque should be transparent - but the more I see the opaque colors the more I like. And then, when they get tricked out with a custom request, I like them even more. 




When I started making these plaques, in my mind it was always about modern or mid-century homes. I love when I get pictures of the plaques on every type/style of house - and they totally work. Just goes to show, gotta be open minded.
