I delivered the work for the show yesterday with my Step Dad and brother to the Lanning Gallery. I think the count was about 32 pieces maybe 34. I might bring a few more up Friday afternoon. I'm not sure what I would have done without their help. It was a lot of work to unload and I needed to replace the stretcher on one piece where the frame after a few years of temperature changes had warped a bit. Afterwards we headed up to Jerome to take photos and eat at Vaqueros - if you get a chance to eat there they have really good hot sauce and guacamole!
The opening will be this Friday June 2nd, 5-8pm with an artist talk at 6pm at the Lanning Gallery in Sedona, AZ.

With this show I've been listening to a lot of ambient Post Rock and Post Metal/Death Drone with my normal diet of ambient electronica. I share that, because I feel it's important to the work in a lot of ways. The textures of the collaged materials are very much influenced by the echoed, distorted feedback circling guitar riffs contained within the music I've been listening to.
