Today is the last day of my exhibition Fever Dreams at Mt San Antonio College. Even though I don’t physically have to be there, whenever I have an exhibition it feels like I’m walking around naked or like I’m wearing a giant Vegas showgirl costume with a feather head dress and rhinestones. In my daily interactions with people, I’m looking behind me thinking “Omg, can’t you see it, can’t you tell?” Even while I’m painting for my next show or working on my book (about painting, stay tuned), the air feels different around me, like it’s sparkling. Thank you @artillery_mag @laweekly @artandcakla for the wonderful coverage and @shananys @garywinstonbrewer #annabelosberg for the write ups . Thank you @fatemehburnes for curating and #michaeljwilson for the brilliant essay . The hardback catalogue featuring a brilliant essays by Michael Wilson and Shana Nys Dambrot is also available at griffithmoon.com/feverdreams. For anyone who missed it and still wants to see it, just DM me with your email address and I’ll send you an online version of the entire catalogue which includes installation shots and all the works on paper. https://www.instagram.com/p/BrETRUgFxUO/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1wmiqxji7l5kf
