“Rooted in the Heart VI.” Eur’s new unfoldable. From an ongoing series. Print on colored paper. Art that you can receive in the mail and unfold at home.
I started painting smoke last summer, and approached the concept a few times more this summer. This piece, The Rebecca Ward Goes Down, symbolically describes wooden ships that were frozen in place, and ultimately crushed by the ice, as early explorers (such as Robert Peary and crew) attempted to reach the top of the world.
Latex paint and ink on medium density fiberboard, framed in oak, maple and walnut.
These photographs are from a temporary outdoor exhibit I posted on the exterior wall of an abandoned concrete facility at the end of July. Plenty of neighborhood people passed by and enjoyed the art… – JM
I recently traveled back in time, via an external hard drive, and found forgotten caches of old work (in the form of digital images). These 3 paintings are Eur’s and the first 2 were completed before we met. She used thickener to build surfaces onto the canvas so that you could run your hand over the finished pieces and they felt like topographical maps. – JM
Artists: if you want to show your work, simply bring your work into public and show it. Here are 3 more solo shows I completed in Detroit this past week. 1…at fancy vegetarian restaurant Seva (Diego #1 and fat frog #1 (ode to Diego) in the bar area). 2…at homey Traffic Jam and Snug (fat frog #2 (ode to Diego) is currently posted on their wall). 3…at independent Source Booksellers (Golden Parties from the America series hung inside, facing the sidewalk viewer). In all, we showed and left 21 pieces in Detroit. – JM
