Alternatives to the alternative

Dear K, 

Whoo.. We have both been so busy lately. In addition to everything going on down here, wanted to post about a major project happening in good ole Rochester that I worked on while assisting Nathan Lyons. "John Wood: On the Edge of Clear Meaning" is a major retrospective exhibition that is traveling around Rochester, NY spaces this fall as well as the International Center for Photography. A major project including a DVD with interviews of the artist, a forthcoming book published by Steidl and a plethora of mixed-media, photo-based prints, artists' books and drawings done by artist, John Wood. My mailbox is waiting patiently for my pre-ordered copy.

I particularly enjoy how Wood incorporates drawing into photography... a difficult task. From the VSW website: "John Wood's style refuses to be shoehorned into one category. A master of straight photography, collage, cliche verre, solarization, mixed media, lithography, drawin and more, he decisively incorporates a variety of media." 

Other things are swirling.. my life is so very mixed media these days. Talk soon. I promise to post again shortly.
