I woke up one morning with a delightful electric shock style hairdo, so I matted down the sides into a fashionable 'faux-hawk' that the youth are so fond of these days. Deanna and I messed around taking photos of it...
It was raining on the days leading up to the opening
, and I was very busy trying to finish painting the heads. Many 15 hour days stumbling out of bed to work and stumbling back into bed at 2 am. 3 days with only a paintbrush or spoon in my hand every single minute.
I tried to spray some coating on one head, and the paint started bubbling up. Disaster! The head was totally fucked up
and I had to spend a bunch of time I didn't have trying to repair it.
On Monday, I had an interview for the leading financial newspaper in Copenhagen. Apparently, it is the place to go to read serious art reporting I am told...
So I sent them some of these Faux-Hawk photos that Deanna took and of course...
The used them in the paper...
I'm sure attendance to the show was WAY down after this photo was published! I mean look at that asshole!
This is a photo from the installation day.
We even had to bust out the 'White Glove Treatment' for the heads. Fancy.
Here are some various scenes from the installation.
These kids were the first to show up, Toy board in hand. The perfect Loyal Pawn, I love it!
Here is me during the opening. The opening is my least favorite part of doing an exhibition. It is awkward for me. I get most happy right after we finish installing everything. Then I go into a mild depression.
Some people enjoying the opening.
At our after dinner at a Thai restaurant, I took this photo of our dessert for our pal Stacy. It turns out that the owner of the restaurant makes documentary films about Graf artists, who would have guessed?
