Chaostrophy :artworks inspired by the music and history of the band Coil

Posted by on Jun 6, 2016 in Art, Music Videos | 0 comments


My video collage collaboration with Dan Wreck will be appearing in the premiere exhibition at LUDWIG in Berlin, June 17th 2016 – July 23rd 2016. Can’t make it to Germany? You can still watch the video here.

CHAOSTROPHY :artworks inspired by the band Coil

17.06.2016 – 23.07.2016

Anzengruberstr. 3, 12043 Berlin
curated by Ceven Knowles

The music of Coil spanned over twenty-two years with fifteen studio albums, nine live albums, ten compilations, and dozens of Eps and singles, not to mention different aliases, side projects, and other collaborations. Founding members, John Balance (February 16, 1962 – November 13, 2004) and Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson (February 27, 1955 – November 10, 2010) created a rich body of work that came to also include members: Stephen Thrower, Drew McDowell, William Breeze, Thighpaulsandra, Ossian Brown and countless other guest musicians and singers. Their ever-evolving sound and presence became a legacy deeply respected by artists, musicians, and occultists around the world. Rather than a retrospective of the band’s output this exhibition focuses on original visual and audio artworks, photographs, texts, performances and personal reflections as a tribute.

This serves as the opening exhibition at LUDWIG a new gallery, small event venue, culture house, and bar in Berlin Neukölln spread over three large rooms covering 114 square meters. Over the weeks of the exhibition online video documentaries, live streaming events and other materials giving portraits the artists involved and their contributions will be released online for those who cannot be in Berlin can experience as well.

Music Video Showing at Re/Action Exhibition at SF State, 4/21

Posted by on Apr 19, 2016 in Events, Music, Music Videos | 0 comments


My music video for Neurotic Wreck – “Funeral of Roses” will be on display in the Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery exhibition Re/Action, opening 4/21 from 5pm-8pm. The exhibition was juried by Rebeka Rodriguez from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

A group exhibition with:

Alden Enriquez
Shikha Hutchins
Salvador Perez
David Rogers
Lyola Rowe
Marilyn Roxie
Jacob Ruggles
Christina Rizos
Susan Luo
Meghan Brabant
Cody Lee
Maxx Ortiz
Marvin Hidalgo
Moira Chase
Chris Chigas
Kiana Endres
Nathan Byrne
Luna Gomez

Every cause has an effect and every effect becomes the cause of something else. The artists in this show bring the learning, relationships and experience of their time at SFSU to the work in this exhibition. These undergraduate years have provided space for each artist to be active agents in their own lives and to explore the images and stories that matter to them on their own terms. The glorious result is a show comprised of works that embrace a broad spectrum of human complexity including: self-protection, isolation, private and public spheres of violence, contradictions, love, playfulness and more. Almost 100 works were submitted for consideration; the chosen pieces span drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.
