I have a new wall piece up in Staten Island as part of FLUID, a group exhibition guest curated by Jesse Hamerman of the Public Art Fund. The show features works by 22 artists exploring themes related to water. It opens Sat. 5/2 from 12-4pm and runs through Sun. 12/13.
My book project, Photos of Paint is now available at Printed Matter!
Photos of Paint began as a collection of everyday encounters with paint. Since then the archive has grown to include hundreds of found marks, ready made color palettes, and images of places that were somehow shaped by the materiality of paint. The book is an open edition w/37 digitally printed pages and a unique paint mark applied to each cover after printing. Images of the inside can be found here: http://jescannon.com/books
Excited to announce the publication of the exhibition catalog for the show I curated at NURTUREart:

The Bushwick Daily gave a nice little shout out to The Crystal Cracked, a group show I'm in at Honey Ramka w/a talented roster of artists. Go Honey Ramka!
As part of the exhibition there will be a panel discussion w/the artists moderated by Jesse Patrick Martin held at the space on Sat., Sept 28th at 3pm.

. . .
Honey Ramka is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, The Crystal Cracked. The exhibition opens Friday, September 6th from 6-9pm, and runs through Sunday, October 6th.
The Crystal Cracked features artworks by Jessica Cannon, Lars van Dooren, Ben Finer, Michelle Heinz, Peter Lapsley, Keri Oldham, Russell Tyler, and Nikita Vishnevskiy. This show highlights works that are of a fractured, cosmic, or fantastical bent. Like prisms splintering their own light, the artworks rally fragments into curious constellations that reassert the sublimity of brokenness.
My curatorial project, THE PSYCHIC TRIANGLE was accepted as part of the 2013-14 season at NURTUREart. More info on artists + dates to come!
