I'm a fine artist living in Los Gatos, CA. I've spent a lot of time working in art academia, as well as exhibiting my own work internationally. I've been a working artist for 15 years and have lived and worked in the greater bay area primarily.
I'm primarily an experimental filmmaker, which is pretty non-specific. It can mean painting on film, doing weird animation, appropriating found footage, and anything non narrative in nature. I currently also work with sound, and do video installations. In the past I've also worked with collage, drawing, printmaking, and clay.
My background is mostly working in the local experimental film scene, mostly in San Francisco. I have organized and promoted both narrative and experimental film exhibitions, and have participated in gallery shows and film exhibitions both locally and abroad. I've studied art academically also, studied art abroad, and thus have received some degrees. I've been a teaching assistant for film classes, and co-taught one myself. I've lectured on art subjects and led discussions. Yada yada =).
I hope to achieve the goals of the group, as described in its description. I want to enrich my own practice, meet other artists, and sustain my own artistic discipline.
The group's developing into something really cool, I'm happy to be organizing it.
You probably know my name from Frameworks. That's where I saw that you had started this group. I also emailed you directly when I saw the post on Frameworks. We haven't actually spoken, via sound waves. Looks like you have a good response to the group. Hopefully I'll be able to make an event where you have space at some point.
thanks for letting us know. :)
Welcome to Creative Spark!
Hope you can join us!
Thanks for the welcome, Charles. As Veronica said so well in her message, "I look forward to feel the good energy of artistic, creative and bohemian souls." : )
Very kind of you to send a note.... I hope we get the group going and I can't wait to join all the good energy of those artistic, creative and bohemian souls of artists from the area :)
