EAST Austin Studio Tour 2014

It's time for the yearly massive overload of art. EAST!!! This studio tour is the best time to see tons of Austin artists and have a great time. Our show, "Degenerate," will consist of almost all new pieces that we are super pumped to show - a definite evolution has happened with our work in the last year. We will be showing with 4 other rad artists. Swing by for a hang and a look at lots of art. Let's talk art and drink a beer.
 "Bombed" --- Valley of the Dolls style, right!?
Man, do we love her --- this girl don't play.

Modplexi Mixtape: Patty Pravo

One of the most amazing videos. Worth every second of your time. She is so classic.

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.

And it's stacked on 3 colors of plexi - art from all angles.

Yellow ... It's the New Everything

Without even realizing it, I have become addicted to yellow, and in particular, this color of yellow plexiglas. Every piece of art made, my immediate gut reaction,  "Let's assemble it on yellow." 
 


 And then the ultimate happened -- someone ordered a plaque -- on opaque YELLOW plexiglas.
It looks unbelievable -- and their house, will be noticed. In love.

The Perks

This shirt is one of the perks of having a sister who lives in China. I challenge a lot of eye contact when I wear it.

Modplexi Mixtape: New GOASTT Video Rules

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger's (GOASTT) new video - so many reasons to love. It's a take on The Source Family, the style of the video was inspired by Jodorowsky, and it sounds and looks so flippin' good.

WEST 2014 Group Show

April 12th is the big DUE WEST 2014 Group Show - The kickoff for the WEST Austin Studio Tour that happens in May. Well over 100 artists will have art on display (and to buy). 
"Hooked" is the piece we're showing. The pictures I took aren't the greatest, as it was a serious working up to the last moment to make the deadline.
  
We are expecting a full on stampede from all the rabid Daryl Hannah/Splash fans.
Other title options were "Hooker" "Mounting Hannah" and "Land Ho." If ya buy it, you can pick the name.


DUE WEST! April 12th 6-10pm 6406 N. IH-35, Suite 2850A

Dark Green Address ... Of Course

Our first client bold enough to go opaque green ---
Clearly a great choice. I love it and now want to make any and EVERYthing with this color.


Go Big, always.

Bring on the Sun

Living in Austin, these recent cold snaps are freaking us out! I know people in other places laugh at us ... closing schools, shutting down highways --- but it's just not normal in Austin, TX. Hoping my gardens survive the current ice rain, as I didn't get to harvest this guy yet.
Anxious to plant some new succulents in my circles, just need the freezing temps to be done (my kids have claimed the circles as the perfect spot for their rock collections for now).
  Ready for some warmer days ....
