Nazars for PYT and Sugar Knives for Baltimore

Projects for the end of June beginning of July 2011 include creating a "premium" multiple for Tampa Fl. based Philanthropic Young Tampa and a sugar dagger multiple for Current Space, Baltimore MD.

During 2010 i produced the first of what has become a series based on sympathetic magic. The nazar stickers shown above were made for the Elvenwerks exhibition at The Peacock Room, Orlando FL. They are meant to ward off "the evil eye" and therefore preserve an individual's good luck. Elvenwerks was an Experimental Skeleton Inc. project, more info can be found at(- and
Philanthropic Young Tampa( ) is an organization that seeks members to help secure works of art for institutions like the Tampa Museum of Art and puts on small events with lectures. I am now creating a multiple work of art to help boost membership for PYT. The work will take the form of an amulet style nazar seen below. New members will receive one of these works with the eye on the amulet matching their own eye color.

Another project in the works- a multiple for the Current Space "C A R T" exhibition opening in on July 9th in Baltimore, MD. This work takes the form of a hard candy cast dagger. Based on my own memories of Astropops and the candy's tendency to become wicked pointed at the end when sucked, this "Sugar Shank" candy is a functional weapon once sharpened by the owners saliva. Below is a sketch book page dedicated to the project.
