Artomatic 2012

I'm spreading the word about Artomatic, which returns this year with a bigger space than ever before and opens to the public on Friday evening. My artwork is located on the 9th floor in space #212, near the Peeps!

I am always excited about Artomatic because it's soooo much fun, but also because I'm debuting 3 brand new steel and glass sculptures. This is a relatively new focus for me, and I have spent the past year and a half learning the skills of glass and metal work in order to create these pieces. It's quite a turn from my Holga photography of years' past, and I intend to take this new body of work even further as I continue to learn and hone my skills.

A couple of key Artomatic events are listed below, but there are many more fun things to experience listed on AOM's web site.

I know this is a bit late, but, have just seen your latest homepage image of one of your new glass/steel sculptures. It looks fantastic, as does this sampling shown here. Sorry I'm not in NYC to see it for real!
PS: What are 'Peeps', please? (A silly Aussie....) :OD

thank you, janina! i have a lot of new work in progress that will be added tot he site in the next month or so, because i have an exhibit coming up in december.

peeps dioramas are a tradition at artomatic. the washington post holds a contest to see who can come up with the best handmade scene using peeps candies. often times people recreate scenes from movies or can also recreate a real life event. a google image search for "peeps artomatic" will give you plenty of examples!
