Meeting


I wrote this on Thursday, still raw from what had transpired, while sitting in the majestic company of James Turrell's hypnotic and powerful installation Meeting at MoMA PS1. Turrell's work was some of the first art that I encountered that truly ingrained itself in me. Seeing his Trace Elements: Light Into Space at the Denver Art Museum in the …

Transit Festival in Leuven


I've been sort of drifting in my hotel all day in Leuven, doing a bit of work, drinking "intense" sparkling water, and finally getting down to reading Lawrence Weschler's seeing is forgetting the name of the thing that one sees about Robert Irwin. This book was recommended to me by several different people over the course of about a week last …

Fred Sandback


Ever since first encountering his miraculous yarn pieces at Dia:Beacon last year I've been completely transfixed by the work of Fred Sandback. Something about the way his simple beautiful lines re-contextualize a space and the way it feels is totally magical. His Untitled from my birth year is currently up at The Drawing Center and it's just as …

Tomorrow night, Scott Worthington will premiere my newest work Descending The Starfield Symmetry at Art Share LA. This has been a wonderful process working with Scott on this piece and the results are expansive and a bit of a departure.

New work for Scott Worthington


I've been in Los Angeles this week developing a new work for the incredible Bass player Scott Worthington.

This new work for Scott, tentatively called Descending The …
