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.

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.
Sean Scully. The "holy mother of this moment" factor of this exhibit was not lost on me.
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.
It's so close to EAST 2014 - I can not wait!! It's a win win - I get to show lots of pieces of art and I get to see lots of art. This is our submission piece for the group exhibition and kick off party, DUE EAST.
"Eyed" is the name of this bad boy, and the longer your stare, the creepier it gets.

* and yeah, it is kinda weird that this piece matches the blog colors. yellow yellow yellow -- so addicted!
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.
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.
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).
Modplexi is all about making functioning art out of plexiglas. My love for art/music/mid-century modern living provides the theme. The address plaques are all about a clean modern vibe, and my collage art is a combination of vintage, kitsch -- and what makes me laugh. This blog is all of it in process.
