    In Progress! I have been working on a video project with some friends of mine - Dana Peters, Andrew Burkitt and Rachel Debuque. It stars all of us and features objects, sets and costumes we designed. It's in the post-production phase right now - but it is coming a long! More soon.

    WIZARD BUSINESS @ SOIL / SEATTLE
    Denton Crawford
    Elizabeth Kleene
    Justin Plakas

    October 3 - November 2, 2013
    Opening reception:
    First Thursday, October 3, 6-8pm

    The works in WIZARD BUSINESS investigate the limited and abstract cognitive processes of the human mind, and how personal experience informs an understanding of the relationship between mysticism, spirituality and art. Using familiar language and symbols, the work is fed by conflicting ideologies that explore the boundaries between normalcy and oddity, presenting unnatural events that seem at once enticing and suspicious.

    2 of SPADES for the ATHICARDS PROJECT

    I am one of 54 Athens-based artists to participate in ATHICARDS, a fundraiser for the Athens Institute for Contemporary Art (Georgia). Each artist designed a single card to make a complete deck. The cards look great and was excited to be asked to be a part of this project. You can purchase a deck right here.
