"Commissure Behavior"

The morning will bring war ,
If you are unsure lay your eyes to rest,
Others will come and fight the good fight,
Their sore minds and broad ears will catch fast moving hands
rhythmically colliding and crashing together
in a play called "skin meet skin".
The night will bring cowards unsure whether to believe in picture frames or light bulbs,
So they'll gather both in the dawn,
and wonder if they're getting closer to the morning or just further from the night.

Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Auction

I recently had the honor of being invited to show at the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Auction!
 Above is the show flyer that will also be posted in this months issue of Juxtapoz along with all other 140+ participants!  Huge honor to be invited and am so glad I had the opportunity to be involved! Below is a quick write up explaining the event written by Andrew Hosner! 

This year, 2009, Juxtapoz is celebrating their 15th Anniversary. To help celebrate, Juxtapoz decided to put together a huge group show and have teamed up with Powerhouse Project in Detroit to help raise money to buy homes in abandoned neighborhoods in order to regenerate one of the symbols of American middle class cities.

To help make this event as big as possible, Juxtapoz reached out to some of their favorite galleries and asked for their help in curating this milestone event.

Artists featured in the auction on behalf of Thinkspace include:
Anthony Clarkson, Dabs Myla, L. Croskey, Cherri Wood, Tran Nguyen, Brett Amory, Erik Siador, Nathan DeYoung, Anthony Pontius, Craig ‘Skibs’ Barker, Sarah Joncas, Dan-ah Kim, Catherine Brooks, Kelly Vivanco, David MacDowell, Ekundayo, Brandi Milne, Tony Philippou, and Joshua Mays.

Besides our gallery, others that helped bring the show together include Shooting Gallery, Copro Gallery, White Walls, Subliminal Projects, Jonathan LeVine, Show & Tell, and Fifty24SF. Nice company to say the least. We are honored to have been asked to help curate this special charitable auction and can’t wait for all to see this amazing collection of work this evening.

Independent of the above galleries, Juxtapoz has also secured works from the likes of Matthew Barney, Kehinde Wiley, Robert Williams, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Craola, Todd Schorr, David Choe, Todd “Reas” James, WK Interact, Robert Williams, “Big Daddy” Roth, Thomas Campbell, Estevan Oriol, Mister Cartoon, Paul Insect, Jeremy Fish, Sam Flores, Alex Pardee, Saber, David Ellis, Travis Millard, Mel Kadel, Skinner, Haze, San, Dan Witz, D*Face, Andrew Schoultz, Richard Colman, Aaron Horkey, Saelee Oh, Lucy McLauchlan, Adam Wallacavage, AJ Fosik, Ron English, Josh Keyes, Monica Canilao, Shawn Barber, Kenji Hirata, Jay Howell, Vhils, Eine, Jeremyville, Augor, Herbert Baglione, Liz McGrath, Kelsey Brookes, Charles Glaubitz, Dennis McNett and many, many more. A simply STUNNING lineup of artists taking part in this awesome show.

Act 4: Like Exploding (Accepting) Neon (Dreams)

Like the ships built in bottled sand,
Passion assembled promise (piece by piece) in fragile neon tubes,
A promise of more than (or were it greater than?) the sum of its amateur hands,
Tracing careful lines to attract the open eye wide,
I attached skin to color, to expose a liar working for honesty, 
I connected power lines to sleepless nights, to illuminate the anatomy of distraction,
Than I built a glowing human sign (so I could sleep next to a glowing human), that reads "Look what I've built, it tries so beautifully".
