Summer Blend

Summer blend makes me think of the various ales and lagers that come out seasonally, something fresh and different to quench the thirst. My summer blend is of a different substance, a collaboration. It all started with the online call Co:operation Tableware on I was really excited about the idea of collaborating, however, I misread the fine print and thought two artists were suppose to work on something together, instead two artists are suppose to make two separate things that are used together, a fork and knife for instance.

Well, you know the old adage you see what you want to see. I approached Steven Grainger, a young Scottish artist I know from our summer gig, about the collaboration idea. He was up for it. Combining his text based inclinations and my plastic coated cyanotype images we have come to a happy summer blend and soon will be submitting a wall sculpture, albeit to a different show than originally intended. Image and description to follow soon. For now I leave you with a teaser, the name, "How I Learned to Love the Craving"
