I decided to get an early start and work with December 1 as my official transition to 2016.
This is not because I’m in a rush to get the year over with, 2015 has been a very powerful, very successful year in every way. This is more out of a readiness to draw a line, leaving behind the more unsavory aspects without having to wait for the official 2016 title. After all, time is a construct.
I also feel happy right now. I’m with my family - enjoying them all, I’m with my art community at Basel experiencing in person the impact of my work on others, and back home at the ranch Black&Sexy TV is running with our great team. I feel really solid about what I want going forward which is bringing me a sense of ease and excitement.
Tonight is the Yeelen Gallery opening reception and party for my short film Florida Water. (Saturday Dec 5, 10pm. 294 NW 54th St. Miami FL 33127) This project was born from a deep need to express the feeling of answers to my life that I do not have. It’s a visual collage of memory and imagination. The exhibition began on the 1st - another indication of my new year as this work screens in the city that I come from.
For all of you who are not in Miami tonight to join me, here is the film right here for you.
6 minutes depicting a few layers of my world.
and for those in Miami... come through for good times and good art.
