NICHOLAS STEINDORF / right: BRIAN WILLMONT
woof . .
I was so glad to find out NICHOLAS STEINDORF’S 3 part, sultry offering . . was all about being (the only) ‘multiple edition’, in the show – and, not about wanting maybe . .. 3 wives ?!!

NICHOLAS STEINDORF, ‘ONION RING RING’, 2019.
Burger King onion ring, resin / 1 x 1 in.

BRIAN WILLMONT, ‘Monument to Eternity’, 2019.
Acrylic paint, 3.5 x 3.5 in.


from the show’s curator . . ANDREW GUENTHER,
who paints under @andrewguenther_art & makes jewelry under @eattheleaf.
the ‘south’ side . . of eternity & desire.
ANDREW GUENTHER, ‘Fly’, 2019. Resin, dead fly. 1 x 1 in.


SASHA FISHMAN, ‘Sticky & Toothless’, 2019.
Lost teeth, resin, gold leaf, polymers, found pearl, hot glue, urrethane, vinyl, brass. 3 x 3 x 3 in.


ALEXANDER DESCHAMPS, ‘(C)ASH 4 GOLD’, 2019.
Brass and acrylic / 0.75 x 1 x 1.25 in.


JONATHAN TRACY, ‘Desiccated Cartouche’, 2019.
Various putty, ABS plastic, Lapis lazuli, and gold foil.
4.5 x 2 x 1.75 in.


ALICIA GIBSON, ‘Dilirium of Negation’, 2019.
Synthetic hair, brass ring, wire, and costume jewelry.
3 in. in diameter.

ALICIA GIBSON’s “memento mori” . . surprised me the most, just as to: scale.
in the Instagram photos, it had seemed sized to fit a finger, but it was larger.
it was kind of even: monumental on the ring scale !! and, way deep in meanings, too . .
mortality, death, vanity of earthly life & the “transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits” / google
a reflection on: eternity in a deep, strong ancestral way. a strong bond, maybe even unto death.


TAMARA SANTIBANEZ, ‘Ring’, 2019.
Polymer clay, acrylic paint / 5x 3.5 in.

picture that / upright, on your engagement finger.
it’s also so easy – to break a marriage / slightly chip a sharp point, and each time – more of the bond
. . chips away.


ANTONE KONST, ‘Strong Ring’, 2019.
Airplane wire (steel), acrylic. / 1 x 1 in.
all love should only be so strong, and stay, so . . tender.


THOM COWAN, ‘Partners’, 2019.
Clay, coral, acrylic, and wire / 7.5 x 7 in.
THOM COWAN’S ‘ring’ . . covered all the bases, ‘partners’ going through cycles,
and ups-and- downs . . is pretty much it.
it helps to have some – playfulness.


his piece reminded me of ANTONE KONST’S . . recent, over-size ‘FREE PEDDLER’ sculpture at Socrates Sculpture Park / Annual 2018. in the loopy-ness of form, and the sense of inner weariness, even though the story seems playful, the craziness of biology, reproduction, and the animal world in general.


then, there’s that . . ‘ball & chain’.
The ‘Free Peddler’ . . also had that sense of being ‘chained to a situation’, a life of endless trekking / hawking trinkets and wares, even if the exchange was free.
the word: FABLE comes to mind.


THOM COWAN . .
at the opening with his piece, to the top / left side.


that other piece above, is by . . DOUG YOUNG, ‘Chromium Alum Ring’, 2019.
Chromium alum, paper, paint, sterling silver / 5 x 5 x 5 in.

it is probably . . the biggest ‘ rock’ in the room, rock n roll.
(as Walter Robinson . . would say.)


the other ring hinted at.
BRANDEN KOCH, ‘today’s growth, tomorrow’s rings’, 2019.
gouache, ink, and acrylic polymer on cut pine.
4.5 x 2.25 x 1.25

there was a ring, and even on occasion, a non-ring (!!) for every mind-set.
though, this one looks like it should be embedded into our heads.
please don’t burst my hopes, with your reality.
reach for the rainbow.

~’BIG RINGER’ . . ORGANIZED & CURATED BY ANDREW GUENTHER / ANDREW EDLIN GALLERY / OPENING PIX !! – PART I

subtext: CRAFT / ART / CONCEPT
utilizing made-by-hand / DIY ‘skills’ that very much leaned to the . . improvised, passionate & one-of-a-kind.
meshed with a strong poetry of mind / & a symbolism . . that went well past: sublime & hit all the bases,
from skeptic to lustful / tempestuous & powerful / to sweet & gentle / & even flat-out: wary, hurt, scared, and often, just plain ole . . “it’s complicated”.
and, even . . “No”.

if you are seeing art – this weekend / this is a must-see, local venue . . swing by !!

PIX FROM THE OPENING – PART I / SAT APRIL 27, 2019


ANDREW GUENTHER . . must have had a mighty vision, of tiny things interacting . . when he first dreamed up this show.
because he not only held it together, but surpassed all expectations . . .
the range of the works, and the diverse emotional ‘bases’ – they hit, was a kind of miniature kaleidoscope of marriage commitment, seen through the eyes of contemporary art, and, that should really be stated as . . cutting edge / underground contemporary art.
these were not your mainstream pros flaunting their wares. these were for the most part, voices from the frontier.

I expected the work to be bold, which it was. maybe outrageous, perhaps lovely, even lustful . . and knowing Andrew, most likely, in a proto-goth, heavy metal way: contrarian. and, that – it was. and more.

what I did not expect, was the polished to a fine moment / inspired . . presentation.
I had sort of envisioned rows of plexiglass shelves, maybe display counter-tops / instead, what you get is a series of ‘specific’ conversations – in small settings, with each ring, or ring, NOT !! . .
showcased – as if a miniature theatrical stage play was at ‘hand’.
I’ll have to start calling Andrew – ‘Shakespeare’, from now on.
oh, the stories . . that got told !!
just riffing off a little, as in tiny, but tradition-heavy . . ring.


RING BY – MARK THOMAS GIBSON, ‘Behold’, 2019.
ink on paper. 14.5 x 10.25 in.

well, first of all – everything was supposed to be a ‘ring’ (!!), and not bigger than 5 in. in any one direction !!

you only know what you’re in for, when you move past the entry desk, down a brief corridor, and arrive into the main room, like a ‘reveal’. the first thing I wanted to find, to help bring the show into perspective . . was the most contrarian thing in the room, and this saturated print-like drawing !! . . was it.
right there on the first, street-facing, front wall. Ka-boom.
2-D not 3-D, larger than 5 in. & def . . not wearable.
but a ‘poster’ image, for LOVE – DIVINE !!!! none-the-less.

this was a bell ring-er / and it’s song was glorious. it had a perch, like . . ‘head of the table’.
it lent a kind of in-your-face rebel / goth, black & white vibe to the proceedings & set a tone, for sure.
ecstatic. and not in a rapper bling bling way either.
more . . as in : American outsider / ecstatic painter.


so this is how the presentation . . went.
small groupings . . on shelves or stand-alone tables / as perfect and concise, as an Emily Dickinson poem.


NANCY SMITH, ‘Sewing Machine Ring: Won’t you marry me, my darling millennial crafter?”, 2019.
thrift-shop silver-plated band, miniature dollhouse cast-iron ‘antique’ (fly-wheel) sewing machine. 2 x 1-3/4 x 1/2 in.
note: the ‘fly-wheel’ / i.e. it is hand-operated / as opposed to electric, & now monster / computer programmed machines.

and, there was my ‘ring’, squarely established – just below the Mark Thomas Gibson drawing.
it looked really profound, I was surprised. the way it was displayed, it really did speak to how surprised & honored I was to be included . . in a crafts-based, but nonetheless highly . . rebel / hard-core improvised show.
it did seem to speak – to this generation.


left: SARAH SCHECHTER, ‘Magic Ring’, 2019. Tinfoil, acrylic paint, and flowers. 5 x 5 in.
right: RYAN KITSON, ‘Ruby Ring Toy’, 2019. Ruby, resin, pottery, plaster, glass. 7 x 4 x 4 in.

it was astounding to see my common-sense ring – a practical ode to a generic diy generation / sharing a table with these 2 wild & crazy pieces, pieces that could not be more different – if they had tried to out-do each other, in advance !!

‘INFINITY’ – thy very definition is a 100+ NYC artist show !!


RYAN KITSON, . . . it’s complicated (!!)


NANU AL-HAMAD, “I Don’t”, 2019. (!!!)
Matches, jewelry box. 3 x 2 x 3 in.

opps, so much for romanticism, or is that incredibly romantic in a deeper way ?
great metaphor, if you’ve been married, no more words – needed.
just laying it – out. very straight-forward. elegant, but harsh. just like life.


in fact I think, ‘my’ table . . was the heavy metal one. everything was kind of dark, serious and goth.
since my piece was more of a riff, a pun, an ode !! a sentiment / I can only conclude I got in under the wire, on the basest of reasons, being the hard surfaces, and / ‘cast-iron’ is a heavy-metal – after all.
I thought the contrast of themes gave a great tension, in fact, all the display settings had this energy going on.


PRISCILLA FUSCO, ‘Untitled’, 2019.
stoneware/porcelain. 2.5 x 4 x 1.5 in.
white is the new black, esp when it is bone-colored, and skeleton-looking.


ANDREW GUENTHER, ‘Model for Ring’, 2019.
ABS plastic, wire and wax. 1 x 1 in.

this was Andrew’s ring !!
goth as only goth can be. ancient, like a magic spell, like a well-worn bone.
with blood tints at the . . beginning.


MIA GISELLE ANTER, ‘Guardian of Solitude’, 2019.
Brass, sterling silver, mirror.
3.25 x 1.5 x 1.5 in. / 3.25 x 2 x 1.5 in.
yes, definite . . a spell-casting / dark arts, heavy metal – table.


MIA GISELLE ANTER . . at the opening.
her ring was like a mirror.
skills / magic / black magic, craft / witchcraft.
spells / potions, passion . . everything a ring of such promise & often fearsome responsibility: should be.
