Rust, glass, wings -- and paper

 Realizing I haven't bragged enough about being in the paper.

This was in the Washington Post's what's-in-the-galleries-this-week roundup [a few weeks ago] ...

I was pleased to be deinstalling only 5 of the 8 pieces I had installed for the DCAC Wallmountables show. These are the three that sold:

Cicada wings and rose petals on rust
"Codes we know, codes we don't" (djh 2021)

vine-twisted wood, wire, salvaged bottle glass, teabag, stones, key
"[Esq.]" (djh 2021)

salvaged pipe, cicada wings, vintage bottle
"Dwell" (djh 2021)

I will post photos of the other pieces soon (some still available for sale!) This week my priority is to get started on my Sparkplug Collective application for DCAC -- it would be an opportunity to share work and get feedback from other artists, and participate in smaller-group shows for the gallery, over the next two years.

No Appointment Necessary!

DC Arts Center is holding its annual Wallmountables right now -- it's like a tiny Artomatic, all in one room! -- and you no longer need an appointment to visit (though I think you do need a mask).

Wed-Sun. 2-7 pm

through August 22nd

My stuff is on the front wall. "I'm Not Trying To Move You."

If We All Go (djh, 2021)

Utopia Monster: Initial reports from the VDF2.0 Biohazard Containment Facility


As long as I have to work the graveyard shift in this place, you may as well get a tour. Come see the nonrecyclable monstrosity the authorities have wisely quarantined in this isolation tent. Hairnets provided upon request.

Utopia Monster, Eco-Angst, PONY X, Virgil Del Fuego...

 Virtual Del Fuego 2.0 is happening at the end of this month: May 28-31, 2021. Some of the things that I am doing:

- exploring my inner drag king

- building and burning a semi-pony effigy thing

- making a secret metal sculpture to hide inside the thing we are going to burn

I've also been making a ridiculous twisted plastic thing... the Utopia Monster... which i envision housing in a biohazard containment tent during the event. There will be tours, and opportunities to leave your own messages (PAPER OR PLASTIC?), and hopefully a discussion about our various eco-anxieties, hopes, furies, ideas and suggestions...? If not, it may just be me ranting on-camera by myself. That, too, is cathartic.

virtual.playadelfuego.org is where events will unfold!

Bxiie goes on about something

On Wednesday, May 5, I (which is to say, me, Bxiie) will be giving an online presentation about my art practice and specifically about the design and installation of Isolation, a large piece that I produced last year and installed in Jamestown, Rhode Island.  The arts group that arranged last year's show (Jamestown Arts Center) has asked me to speak.  I will discuss my work for about 30 minutes and then answer questions for about 30 minutes.  The stream starts at 7:30 pm east-coast time.

If you are interested, you should RSVP in advance.
