Winding down and gearing up for the trip home. It’s been an interesting 3 months. Lots of work, some traveling, some playtime but mostly work.
Sandy and I are talking about continuing our collaboration. Although our work is very different, we have discovered a thread that can be used as a way to get into more theme based shows. So this is a good thing since most work exhibited in biennials, alternative spaces and galleries have a tendency to lean in this direction. We have established really nice contacts here and perhaps there will be shows here in the future. All in all our residency has been very successful.
I posted this to FB and it continues to crack me up.
The story behind Greetings From Karpland is coming along but I think it will take a while before I can present it in it’s entirety. So please follow the blog and if anyone would like to see someone killed off let me know. Don’t forget it’s a story so if we kill someone off, we can bring them back. The interesting part of Greetings is the fact that it is also an installation piece as well as a graphic novel. So the saga will continue to grow along with the dimensions of the actual art. I would say it is still in the beginning stages and needs a few more venues before publication. But we will see…
Yesterday we had lunch with a wonderful woman, Irmi, who we kept bumping into. She has a lovely home here in Dilsberg and fed us so full of carbs I had to come home and take a nap. Not big on veggies here and protein is an after thought. Tomorrow we will most probably have dinner with Offer, an Israeli guy we met here.
Other than saying goodbye to all those we have met, that’s about it. It’s rainy and cold and believe it or not, they are sending up heat.
Probably venture into Heidelberg before we leave but I think we have explored every inch of the place. Turns out that Neckargamünd is also a fairly important place here as well. Irmi has a book on it. Other than the train station and perhaps one other castle, there isn’t too much there. So I think we have seen just about everything there is to see and not much else to report. We have been partying a bit and that’s fun.
I know once I return home I’ll have a shit load of stuff to do. Trying not to think about it and remain in the moment.
