Journal Archives (IV): “What the @$%# is that?” (2006/02)

Necktopus     3/16/06 First time Daveworld guests typically follow, “What the @#$% is that?” with, “How do you name stuff?” Like sculpting, my naming process blends blind inspiration with sheer accident. Today’s catch yielded Fruitnipple, Seafritter, Beachpear, Fripplet and Bruce. Open to interpretation, the ideal name prompts recognition coupled with uncertainty. “Nice Neckmonkey. Han Dynasty?” My […]

Artinjection Archives: Bozeman, MT studio, circa 2000….

Paint-monkey Orchestra>the Lab @ Story Mill~Bozeman, MT, circa 2000 One desperate night at the studio, around the witching hour, I ran out of canvas. Nothing, nada, no music. While scavenging around for a paintable surface, I wandered into the cavernous, dilapidated warehouse connnected to my studio.  Suddenly I found myself staring at stacks and stacks […]

Journal Archives (II) The Dawn of Artinjection…

1991: I didn’t know what it was, but its black-red skin inspired the name, Blood on Fire. Poised for pounce it seemed alive. I was stunned that I had created a sculpture that could stare right back at me. Intrigued or possessed I quit my lucrative lead-singer-of obscure-Boston-rock-band job and drove West. I lived by […]

Journal ARCHIVES~the dawn of Artinjection in MA, and onward to CA, MT, NY…

For some time now I’ve been thinking about using this blog to archive journal entries and press releases from the past twenty years. But it took the  encouragement of my friend Katharine Leis (writer! filmmaker! model! entrepreneur!) to finally motivate me. Where possible, I will include original dates of “publication”. And for those sculptures and […]

St-Barth 2011: shooting CRUSTACEA & DUNEBUG in the sand…

Local photographer and friend Anthony Pessus took these gorgeous shots in Pointe Milou in ST-BARTH. Thank you Anthony!! My old friend Annik captured the pensive Pegasus at Flamands Beach (my favorite ‘swimming hole’). I shot the sand dune dwelling Dunebug & Co. last week at Shell Beach. Gallery shots of my reception by Albert & […]

Grinding, Riding and Climbing

What’s hard as bronze and more fun to claw than metal? Ice! Clearly threading my bicycle through snow-strewn paths by the George Washington Bridge is also more fun than bronze chasing. However, 30 days and counting until my annual show at Les Artisans in St. Barth’s and I still have about 900 things to accomplish […]

She Said YES!

This summer I received an intriguing commission request. A man preparing to propose to his girlfriend wished to commission a special wedding pendant, because in lieu of the traditional diamond ring/wedding band route, they plan to get finger tattoos. Since his last name is “Branch”, and hers translates to “woodworker”, he envisioned a tree branch […]

“Crustacea” Rising: coming soon in bronze!

CRUSTACEA is one of two sculptures that arose after I broke a larger wire/resin work into two sections (the other, completed last April, is called Pegasus). I slugged away at Crustacea for months with the biggest drills and rasps in my studio until it bore scant resemblance to the original design. A lawn mower as […]
