NYC based Maya Hayuk has been a friend of Fecal Face for many years- so long in fact, that don't even remember when and how we met, we're just glad we did and that she was available to be included in the show. Maya shows her work across the globe and does many commissions featuring her mural work. For the 10 Yr. Show, Maya will have a site specific mural on the walls at The Luggage Store. She starts work on it today, actually. Excited as we've never seen her work on a mural in person.
I lived with Kyle Ranson, John Dwyer, Molly Harvey & Gary Wertz (not all at once, but throughout that year) at Lake Sleepytown on Sanchez st. between 16th & market in a building infested with raccoons and the world's meanest slumlord and cheapest rent ever. I was painting, quietly, in the pantry of my kitchen not really sharing my work in public much/ at all. I was photographing lots and lots of bands & printing at In Color II. A bunch of my friends and I started a skate-surf-snowboarding website/ magazine called withitgirl, which I art-directed, so I was learning to stand on moving boards, and learning photoshop & html. I worked the door on Wednesdays at Minna, and I spent most of my time down in the warehouses on Illinois street.
I hope it's gotten better. it's become harder and easier to make. I understand my direction more and it's gotten way larger in scale, but I still feel like I am at the very beginning of learning a lot, lot more.
Futuristic & remote-controlled & everyone on segways.
That it was a childishly named, super-awesome web magazine. (what? I'm serious)
Big-time! not only have I discovered shit tons of amaaazing artists, people have found me, leading to countless numbers of shows and projects. I'd say it's been more impactful on my career than any other site, hands down. thank you, Fecal Face!
Super yes! And I'm stoked to see you and to see Kyle Ranson & Dan Higgs' show at Needles and Pens the night before and then Chris Duncan the night after. Plus, I get to see my sweet family, so I'm freaking crazy excited to be out there!
we are having our annual Monster Island Block Party, with like 18 bands playing outside on the street on September 4th, so I'm all about super-sprucing-up the outside of the building with some fresh paint. Inside of Secret Project Robot on the ground floor we are making this show called "Main Street Monster Island", where a bunch of us are creating this kind of utopic town with all these different structures, like a head shop called "Inspirations" by sto & eli from Cinders/ dub know dub, a comic book shop by Chris Uphues, a gazebo stage, a hair salon by Vashti from Golden Triangle, etc etc. I am making a planetarium-observatory thing where you stand on a pile of old clothes and look up into this mirrored, black-lit sculpture called "God's Observatory and Thrift" & air-brushed tie dyed tee shirts for the head shop.
Last friday night I played a show across the street at Pete's Candy Store with 3 Treasures, which is my sweetheart, Andrew Deutsch, and 4 other women singing these really beautiful summer camp fire sing-alongs. Tonight I'm making a vegan Brazilian black bean stew with sweet potatoes, mango & cilantro, which I'll serve tomorrow night before the show at our house when we practice.
And then on november 6th i'll be opening my solo show at Cinders called "Heavy Light", which I am pretty excited for.
