Over the past nine years I have taken on private clients in addition to the work I do for MMPA. I’ve been approached by students, artists, institutions and other collaborators to work on various projects. Here are a few of the projects I’ve done, and would welcome in the future.
I can charge hourly in on going projects or estimate for a one time proposal.
I love this word. This and bespoke seem to be the catch all for 2019, but however over used, the idea of carefully choosing images and objects to communicate an idea is fascinating. Crafting intelligent, thought provoking exhibitions and portfolios is what it’s all about. I welcome the task!
Ruthless editing has spilled into all facets of my life and I’m better for it. William Morris once said, “ Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” This idea is something I live by and it affects my art making and editing choices. Hardly anything promotes as well as beauty. I know that this is anti contemporary theory, but I just can’t help myself.
Last fall, I was hired to edited 26 thousand iphone images to a couple hundred (into several themes) for a local artist. Before that, I edited 5,700 images to 68 for an exhibition by another artist.
When it comes to collections, portfolios, inherited art objects and exhibitions. I have perfect pitch and would love to help you edit and be clear about what is important to keep the message and essence of the above.
Who doesn’t love to look at work? I’m no different. As director of MMPA I get to see a lot of art, and I never tire of the process. I’ve helped to sent thousands of students to undergraduate and graduate school, and I’ve also assisted artists who want to have gallery representation or simply to apply for grants. I’ve sat on the review committees of numerous grantors and have written hundreds of recommendations. If there is something you want from your work, I can help you get it.
In 25 years I have taught at dozens of institutions, had thousands of students, and I’ve created many independent studies, and individualized plans outside the curriculum of the course, or the departments requirements for graduation. Standardized teaching just doesn’t work for everyone, and as artists, we know what we are interested in, and what we want to be better at. I enjoy creating individualized programs. This idea dovetails with my pedagogical philosophy; I can help any artist find their voice and be clear about their message.
I was born to collaborate. In life I lead and usually have a team of professionals that I work with over and over regardless of the project. When you are hired to consult, it’s the same process. Someone has a project they need to bring to fruition and I’m very happy to assist and advise. The first meeting to talk about the scope of the project is free. I can’t wait to hear what you’re working on.
