Behold! Teaser trailer for the soon to be made documentary by filmmaker Nick Noyes (fightswithwalls.com), giving the general public a taste of the highly intense and slightly erotic art-related events that unfold daily from within my shadowy underground creativity lair.
Five pieces from the “Brooklyn (Misremembered)” series are going to be included in the upcoming show “Construct, Belief and Nostalgia” along with the work of two other Boston artists – Lindsey Kocur and John Campbell – at 13Forest Gallery in Arlington.
