Down to the wire

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

Oyoyoy…I was telling someone last night that while I have rather happily grown out of my youthful flakiness that was my ur-version of procrastination, I have had to come to terms with, in my adulthood, that no matter how much time I have to do something, it still has to come together at the last-minute. Work expands to fill the time allotted. I’m not sure if this is simply a professionalized way to justify my procrastination, but I have accepted that the closer to deadline I get, the better I work: there’s no time to be wishy-washy, decisions have to be made, stuff just needs to be done.

In any case, however, while I fully expect to work into the wee hours for the next couple of days, I will be done with installation by Wednesday afternoon, 4 pm. There are other things to take care of after that, but the primary thing, the exhibition installation, will be done. Whew!

I sent several different postcards to press last week, will pick up and send ‘em out this week. Below is the big daddy: I printed this double-image one at 6 x 9 inches. The majority of them are destined for the museum as free offerings (you know, like Felix Gonzalez-Torres, except way less of ‘em, way smaller, and I’m not dead yet), but if you want me to mail you one, let me know. Email me your address. If you don’t know my email, it’s on the wofflehouse main page.

The postcards are also being used to send folks to yet another website that I’m putting together with Max, based on the images from Point Of Departure, my MFA Thesis project: more on that once it’s actually functioning, but basically, it will be a site where all of the paintings I’ve made can be rearranged in relation to one another to create new narratives. It should be up and running in June.

OK! Back to the studio.
