NEW WORK: “Ten Mary Adam” and “Pharaoh”

“Ten Mary Adam” is a black and white composition made of leftover prints from another piece I’m working on – I glued it to black paper and anticipate hanging it somewhere in public.  “Pharaoh” was composed on MS Publisher 98 – a vintage workhorse of office ware.  Shown is a draft layout for Pharaoh.  Throughout the coming summer I’m going to approach unfoldable wall pieces in new ways.  – JM

    1. I was working on a simple sculptural piece and it developed into a traffic cop. I remembered hearing something in cop shows from when I was young, shows like “CHiPS” or “Emergency” when into their walkie talkies they said, “Ten Mary Adam.” Or so I remember. When I google searched it, there’s no specific cop or ambulance term I found like that. With that term rattling in my brain, I put together leftover prints, considered them to appear like a figure, and needing a name I gave it “Ten Mary Adam.” I’m gearing up to produce and post several “Ten Mary Adams” across the globe. My first stop is East End, London.

      1. Thanks. The lesson for me is about the value of being creative with naming, just as one is with the ideas and production of the work.
