Solo Show at Root Hill Cafe, Brooklyn, NY

OK, not really a solo show. Was just invited to make art on one brick at Root Hill. They will be asking other artists to fill other bricks, but I'm the first one. So, at the moment it's kind of like a solo show, if one piece a show can make. Was very different working vertically, rather than horizonally. Gravity was not in my favor . . . To see my brick in person and enjoy great coffee (Clover machine!) and friendly people, visit Root Hill Cafe at 262 4th Ave. which is on the corner of Carroll St. in Brooklyn, NY.

The long view

  2. Thank you. "While riding the bean," eh? Whoa, thank God I checked urban dictionary before finishing this post cause I was going to call you a phrase coiner. But, no -- you're just way hipper than I am. "Crunchy glow," however -- no one has ever put those two words together in all of human word history.

  3. I didn't know "riding the bean" was a phrase in use. I thought my college roommate made it up in 1990 and I haven't uttered it much since then.

  4. Maybe your college roommate is the phrase coiner. Someone has to be. Right? Well, you're the linguist, not me.

  5. I don't really think you're a linguist, in case you didn't know that was a joke. My online jokes are batting about 100 at the moment .. .

  7. What a great idea - a single brick for a canvas among a wall of bricks. I love it. So subtle. I feel no need to problematize it. In fact, it may be unproblematizable.

  8. Hey, it's not just another brick in the wall. I love this concept, the placement is at the perfect height. Great photo too!

  9. Thanks, Undercover. Was there yesterday. It's still intact which is a little surprising to me.

  11. Wow, Mary, thanks. It's still there. A little different looking because they had to coat it with something or other to keep it stable, but still there.
