I made it out to PS1 to share more time with Korakrit Arunanondchai’s work.  Whenever I visit PS1 - I leave with a tingle - like that feeling ya get when your a little kid after riding the roller coaster for the first time.

Recently I read that Rudolf Stingel examined the nature of memory over the past 20 years - while expanding the scope and definition of painting.  This made me wonder - what is the nature of memory and do artist retain more memory than other people?  I’m seeing my psychiatrist on Friday and will be sure to ask him this question.

Sharing time with David Wojnarowicz’s Falling Buffalo brought back memories of the New York I knew back in the ‘80’s.  I left PPOW thinking about how I only worked in black and white then - this process - and like how I’m returning to black and white.

Before going to bed last night I set my alarm for 3:30 so I wouldn’t miss the eclipse.  There I was standing on my stoop looking into the night sky, but all I could see were clouds -  then I realized I was naked.  I got back in bed and at one point I had the weirdest dream - I think it was another ATRIPLA dream.  When I decided to officially wake up today - I stayed in bed for a while thinking about everything - where I am in this process and how I’m guided by a source of energy far away from the world I know.

I spent the weekend in SOHO - attending a workshop where I meditated with a group.  We also were guided through visualization exercises and at one point - in my mind - I began to see Jeff Elrod’s work.  At that moment I could see the outcome of a project I’m working on - it was simply magical!

Last night I thought about where I was a year ago - I mean how insanely busy I was with work.  Now - a year later - new doors are opening and it’s like a reflection of what was happening last year - I love it! Though I wish I could have just one day - no phone - no computer -  to stay in bed with someone - and snuggle.

I love works consisting of black and white - so I felt really happy sharing time with Jeff Elrod’s work.  At the same I began to feel like my pupils were dilated - the experience left me feeling like I was floating in the clouds.

Rudolf Stingel’s paintings are like faded vintage photographs.  Sharing time with his work brought back memories of playing with snow globes when I was a kid - imagining a world far away.

Matthias Bitzer’s exhibit Saturnine Swing took me to a multi layered realm - to a space where I experienced so many different emotions.  It was like looking at layer upon layer of information - like what I often experience when I’m in the shower - where thoughts and ideas come from out of nowhere.

I was thrilled when to see Jordan Wolfson’s wall mounted sculpture’s which are covered with stickers (I love stickers).  But  was I surprised, because they’re not mass produced stickers - each sticker was written and designed by Wolfosn!

Last night I looked up at the moon over Manhattan and thought about everything that seems to be riding on the work I’m doing now - and how I need to stay focused on details.  Also - I thought about the approaching lunar eclipses and I look forward to the challenge’s ahead.

Last night I went to three openings - I really don’t like attending openings. Within minutes I ran into Roseanne Barr, Chuck Close, Linda Simpson, Earl Dax - and a sea of people I did not know.  I also went back to 303 Gallery to share more time with Collier Schorr’s work and I began to wonder - does any of this really matter?

I went to share more time with Michel Majerus’ work.  There’s something about his work that seems unfinished - like coloring books that he started to use, but never completed.

Laurie Simmons new work brought back childhood memories of sneaking into my sisters room to play with Barbie.  I would spend hours dressing up Barbie while listening to Don’t Rain On My Parade  - again and again.

So it’s April 1st and since early December I’ve been thinking about my work.  Thinking about what I want to do next - what work I want to create.  I’ve been to so many galleries and museum’s sharing time with other artist work.  This is just part of the process and also spending time with other artist whom I think of not only as friends, but people who I love.
Sometime’s being in this process I feel totally lost, but somewhere in the back of my mind I capture a thought which turns into an idea and eventually a new body of work - a new story. I feel like I’ve been spinning in this endless circle, sketching out thoughts in my mind.  Just the other day it occurred to me what I want to do next - what story I want to share. I’m almost ready to start working on it - I’m really excited - and I can’t wait to share the process here.
