PATV Underground //

Iowa City’s Public Access Television Station, PATV, asked me to exhibit some work for their monthly event, PATV Underground.  My CAT SHOW went up on the first day of the Iowa ArtsFest, and displays until the end of June.  Pieces are $50.  At the gig, Mustard-In-Law performed in the TV studio, in front of an audience, and live streaming on PATV’s YouTube channel.  We played with a green screen behind us, and brought an appropriate video to key in….



Once again, our beloved PublicSpaceOne called on the doers of do to raise funds with an art auction, and Mustard-In-Law dripped up to the plate with a six tape box set.

We provided a listening station and easy access to the contents.
The booklet was six feet long!

Although the physical release went to the highest bidder, you can download the entire 9-hours (!) of audio, along with high-quality beeps of the super-long booklets at this link here:  mustard-in-law.bandcamp.com/album/dear-future   Any money made from these downloads goes straight to PS1, to keep small a art alive in our town.
Listen & weep……………………………………………

Also, I sold this glistening painting of mine.

The winner now knows everything we know, may they live forever in mustard.

monoprinting afternoon

Today I did some simple monoprints.  On blue paper, I used only the inking brayer to find the textures I craved.  Then I used a thoughtlessly carved linoleum block as the impetus for an exciting pattern.


tube prints

These were produced by rolling a large tube along a styrene sheet strewn with blobs of paint, then rolling the paint covered tube onto paper.  The first two have further embellishments, the rest are unadulterated.
