so, like I was saying . . .
one of the most fun times I had last year was visiting the Fort Greene home/studio of TRICIA KEIGHTLEY, and DANIEL DAVIDSON. it was on a weekend: Sat Feb 20, 2016 – to be exact.
Tricia’s studio visit has already posted.
DANIEL DAVIDSON in their compact but lovely kitchen. the living quarters are upstairs, they have 2 small, separate studios downstairs – on the lower level.
on the kitchen counter: uppers & downers !!
Daniel’s workplace – was the first space you access, and his manic zany comic drawings hit you full force in the face . . . a real blast !!
a work in progress – he says his ideas just come to him . . .
free flowing faucet . . .
he also showed me his acclaimed book . . ‘MORE A BRIGHTER IDEA’, produced & published by the legendary Brooklyn silkscreen studio – KAYROCK.
here’s the front cover, DANIEL DAVIDSON – ‘MORE A BRIGHT IDEA’.
KAYROCK . . has a great slideshow animation of the book on their website, under ARTIST BOOKS,
here’s the link: ‘A MORE BRIGHTER IDEA’ by DANIEL DAVIDSON.
the other totally fascinating thing, was a small niche with a great piece: a paper ‘towel’ dispenser !!
that Daniel made & exhibited back in 2010, oh lordy !!
oh: yeah: that’s the face that goes with pulling out a wild card, what a joker !!
the paper towel roll – is covered with Daniel’s zany line work !!
that you can pull off in segments.
he showed me – the inner workings, fascinating. nothing I’d ever seen before. and I’ve seen – a lot !!
it’s even signed and titled: what else ? – – DIRTY !!
take that, and put it anywhere – Damien Hirst move over !!
another set of . . spontaneous drawings, these with color accents.
kind of: super . . trippy.
I mean, he doesn’t look . . like a mad man. but there ya go.
I had to look at that piece on the drawing table – one more time.
I def had to include this doggy one, I’m just wild for doggies – this year.
another work in progress, funny, NOT . . YES !!
TRICIA KEIGHTLEY, sprite that she is, watches me watching Daniel, and we all had a great time.
