Hey Artholeenies, Check out this mirror I stumbled upon during one of my many trips to public restrooms. it was quite hilarious as it was in the men's bathroom causing forced gender bending upon the viewer as it has lipstick and fake eyelashes on it. It ended up a moot point with me, being as I was coincidently already wearing lipstick and fake eyelashes. But one can imagine how it might catch the unsuspecting off gaurd. It is quite amusing to imagine how such a simple object might force an ordinary Joe Shmoe into an awkward confrontation with their own unresolved gender identity issues, much like a seventh grade gym teacher... aww good ol' Coach Lester. I think I'll name this little guy Moe after coach.
As always keep your arthole tense and puckered with awareness for you never know what you are going to run into in the Denny's bathroom at four in the morning while you wait for a john. - 0100011101010010010011110101000001000101
This week in the studio was very busy as well. I got all the molds patched from last week and ready for a bronze pour. The pour is going to happen this week I think Wednesday but not sure as of right now. I get to pour a lot of bones that’s almost 6 sculptures!!! That’s 2 bigger sculptures the dog jaws and human clavicle and 4 smaller bone sculptures. I’m really excited but I’m going to be really broke. Bronze is about $4.50 a lbs. and that’s a lot of metal. I hope to start working in the metal shop next week getting these bone sculptures together and pushed to being finished. Other then my sculptures I have gotten a little further on my drawing of Fly on the Wall. I still think it need some work on the fly but at least I’m working on it. I hope to have it ready for the ARTHOLE crit on Sunday the 29th. Gives me a bit of a deadline and pushes me to get it done as well so I can move onto something else. I have also started working on some other projects this week, nothing big but it is interesting. These crosses are part of a silkscreen project well see if it works out but no guarantees. Last is a picture I took that I think is its own art piece. I found a car flag just discarded and dirty on the ground. The image to me just said it all to me how people always throw away everything and replace it. Consumerism at its best and now even the flag itself is throw onto the ground because its dirty. Anyway just though it was a great snapshot for thinking!! Enjoy. As always thanks for your ongoing support of the art revolution and remember to check out my website. http://www.aaronkent.org/
Boybot has been reported missing by Indiana authorities. He was last seen on his way to the public library to research a book report about the book, "Breeding Habits of the North American Donkey" "Although we are more than familiar with the book, we do not recall seeing Boybot on the premises." reported Librarian A. Hohlman who was on duty at the fountain square facility in Indianapolis during Boybots purported visit. Speculation seems to be the only lead in the case as no one can recall the last time Boybot had been seen. When Questioned about the book report his teacher responded, "I don't actually recall assigning 'Breeding Habits of the North American Donkey' on the list of possible texts." No more helpful was Boybots step-father Vaz Extimy, " I done sent the boy out to git me some sigareets and wizki but I aint seen 'im since. but I can tell you one thing... He wasn't no bad boybot till he started hangin out wit dem bots down at fountain square. Yeah they were always marching about with space ships what drilled to the earth's core and played all kinds of filthy music and such. why I had just finished beatin' the tar off his (expletive deleted) for bringing home some sort of drying machine with gloves, and you know whit it did? Hit grabbed my (expletive deleted). I don't take to kindly to that kind of hanky panky (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted) (expletive deleted) crap in my house! Anyways if you see him get my sigareets and wiski moneys back." In a case full of loose ends with no resolution in sight we request that our readers keep their artholes taut with awareness and open to any information that might come from meticulous probing.
As arthole is in the midst of some changes and preparing for our next big public outing, we have to sit around and be whiny, contemplative bitches pondering if our art cuts the mustard. If you would like to join in the rhetoric, we will be having open crit night on SUNDAY JUNE 29 starting at 7 pm at Casting Arts. More details to follow...
This week was busy but not in the studio. I’ve been working on my website putting up new galleries for you to view. I put up three new galleries Drawings, Drawings2, and In God we Trust. The two drawings galleries have a lot of drawing that have been in shows this year or have not been seen at all by anyone. So it’s a real treat for me to show these drawings to you. Also I put up the gallery In God we Trust. This gallery is loaded with subject matter about religion and God. Another gallery with artwork to make you question or think about situations few wants to question. Also I’ve put up a few more links and thanks to people who are constantly helping out in the art revolution. This week was also gallery contact week for me. I hope to work with Country Club in the future and also Last Rights Gallery in NY. I just sent out some material to both and hope to work with both of them. I’m also trying to find more shows and galleries in NY for the future. As always thanks for your ongoing support of the art revolution and remember to check out my website. WWW.AARONKENT.ORG
