Detroit Ringneck Project

This is my latest adventure, as I shift gears in my artist-identity to make work through a medium that is more literary than visual. With a new baby, new schedule, and new inspiration, I am launching the Detroit Ringneck Project, to record the movement for social change happening here on Detroit. My new artist role will be one of "historian".

Every interview begins with the question, "Why is the ringneck pheasant population of Detroit so large?". I am currently seeking interviewees for the project. Ideal interview candidates are those currently active in the movement for social change in Detroit. If you wish to recommend anyone for an interview, please contact me.

to play is divine

the cycle has begun again. the hamster has awoken and is once again making his endless rounds, turning the little wheels of my mind in his fashion. when the dust settles at the new studio, and we return from texas, i will begin a new body of work that is really more product-based than anything i ever thought i would make before. i plan to utilize old vocabulary and create new to market as a kind of wallpaper.

i have have always had this uncomfortable relationship with frames. i just… Continue

here we go

so here i go again. launching on another body of work. it's about co-dependency. i cannot wait to dive in. it is another autobiographical body, in some sense, though i will be doing my usual experiments with attempting to tie seemingly disparate idea altogether to build picture of the truth of co-dependency. it's body that has been inside me for a long time, but laid dormant without name. i am ready to make it now. i'll start my reading and research, probably get frustrated, attempt to throw… Continue

peace from my piece

so i started and stopped. then i started. then i stopped and started again. i changed the name of my show. i changed the concept. i changed the studio i was making it in. i changed mediums. i changed my mind. i changed homes. i changed my approach to parenting. i changed my process for making art. i changed jobs. i changed my life.

this is december through april. this is what i ended up making art about for my BFA show. the show i used to call "under my skin" became "mental maps". i… Continue

cashflow blockages and other barriers to artmaking

Sarah, my new studio assistant had a lesson in the fiscal perils of the artmaking process yesterday, at the expense of my pride and confidence. It was a good lesson, nonetheless, for both of us. We had planned to go supply shopping for paper at the place i know as heaven on earth, Hollander's Paper, in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I wanted to introduce Sarah to the experience of being immersed in a vast store full of handmade papers from all over the world. We got there and found so many wonderful… Continue

processing the processing

i did not anticipate using artreview to process my own process. but that's what's happening, so I am going with it. i am having this really life-shifting shit come up through recording my process, through photography, voice recording and video. as i have recorded and played back these documentations, i began wondering why this is so fascinating, to hear my own voice, to see my own image talking back to me through time-space about something i have already experienced in real time? then tonight… Continue

Thanks a lot for your comment Erin, I'm very flattered! I'm working on this new thing which involves more your type of installations instead of pure photography. I'd love to hear what you think. You can find it on http://www.alexandraverhaest.be/alexandraverhaest/Father.html. Now, considering your work. The concept I like the most in the work I have seen is the feeling of travel. First thought that sprung to my mind was that maybe you're using your pencil as a kind of symbolic antenna of things happening around you. Your work has a kind of "flâneur" quality. I'd like to see more of it, so please send me some links!
Cheers, Alex
