Things are so busy these days for Christina and me.... I just haven't had time to blog in the last few days. I have been working non-stop on the Hand refurbish, and Christina has been working non-stop on her Burning Man project, Caged Pulse Jets. I am also helping on her project, working on my trucks, and working on the baby room, as well as preparing for a baby shower this weekend and tracking down a king-sized mattress (baby demands it!), and Christina steps away from her project only attend to the demands of growing our baby (which appears to be quite a lot of work!)

Anyway, like I said.... BUSY.

A little over a week ago, we took down our big two-person sculpture show at the Taos Center for the Arts. As promised, here are a few pix of the show while it was up...

Here we see my "gallery-robot", HD6LAW, in the foreground, along with some of my smaller sculptures, including the new "Smashy Von Hammersmark", at right. The tree-like piece at far left is Christina's.

Here we see two more of Christina's kinetic pieces, "9 Beating Hearts" and "Venus Flytrap."

Here is my recent self-portrait, "Temporary Blindness."

And here are three pieces of automotive bodywork, crumpled and disfigured by the Hand of Man, and contextualized by large printed images of the Hand at work.

As I mentioned earlier, the show was well-received and the opening was great, although nothing sold. At some point in the near future I intend to put these images (and a few more), along with copies of the very favorable local press coverage we received, into a little "package" and send it out to a few more galleries and see if we can get the work seen a little more widely.
