Materialists Installation at The Painting Center

On a balmy Sunday afternoon, I met Art Guerra and Anders Knutsson on Greene Street in Soho, put my big painting in the back of their truck and they took it to Chelsea. We've been planning this for months and the day of installation finally arrived. Thank you nature for such a wonderful day to install a painting exhibition in NYC.

I began my day in Peter Reginato's studio putting together the stretcher for my second biggest painting. It's funny how it looked so small in his studio and so large in mine. Took a good two hours to restretch the painting. Usually I work from the middle to the corners, but this time I worked mostly in the corners, doing everything I could to stretch the canvas back on the support. After all that work, I knew that I wanted to buy a better pair of pliers for stretching. Hands hurting and muscles aching, the painting finally sat correctly.






















The other paintings I brought were all easy to move to NYC so there was no need to restretch them.

We met Nils Hill at the gallery and went about dropping off the work. Anders and Shazzi (the director of The Painting Center) wanted to install the exhibition on their own. We left them and Art and I headed for Williamsburg to drop off my painting for the salon exhibition at Richard Timperio's Sideshow Gallery.

Here's a couple photos before Shazzi and Anders began their work.

The exhibition begins on the 2nd of January, and the opening ceremony is on the 9th of January. It runs until the 25th. So there's plenty of time to go witness a great painting exhibition. And just to let you know, there are plenty of painting exhibitions in January of this year, including Michael Brennan at Minus Space, Daniel Levine at Churner and Churner, Paul Behnke's curated exhibition Eight Painters at Kathryn Markel, Jason Stopa at Novella, and Lori Ellison at McKenzie. I think there's a few more others but I don't know exactly yet. Going to be a great month to kick off the year.

November Smalls.

Being that I have this exhibition coming up in January. I've been making chassis and stretching canvas more than I have in a long time. I always get more jazzed about painting when it comes to showing the work in public. I'm one of those that always love showing the newest paintings I've made. Trying to make sure I don't hold anything back...no longer deciding to keep work for myself. The paintings deserve to be out there with people. I have plenty of time to spend with them, but when a new painting comes around, the others get put off to the side anyway. Make room for the new.

I took a couple photos in rough form of two new paintings from November. Click on images for full enlargement.

January Exhibition

A few months ago it was proposed to me through Anders Knutsson that we could get together with a couple painters and construct an exhibition at The Painting Center in the Chelsea section of NYC. We got in touch with Art Guerra and Nils Hill, whom we both felt were excellent painters, and put together our exhibition proposal. It was accepted and on December 23rd we'll be installing the exhibition, which will be really fun for me since I'll be driving my paintings from Columbus Ohio to NYC.

The exhibition will be open after they open up from the new years festivities, the opening party will be on the 9th of January, so there will be time to enjoy the exhibition before the opening celebration.

The exhibition will run through the month of January.

Come see our world of paintings, this will most certainly be an exhibition that will be talked about for years.

The Painting Center is located at 547 West 27th Street. Suite 500.

ArtBookGuy Interview


Back in March of this year I did a talk with Michael Corbin of Art Book Guy fame. We spent a lot of time talking about materials, and how much I dislike over-intellectualizing everything about art. And like always, I won't waste your time here, i'll just point you toward the interview itself.

http://artbookguy.com/jeffrey-collins-playing-with-paints_602.html

Hope you enjoy.

Thanks Michael for doing that with me. I look forward to the day we can speak in person.
