AXIOM: The New Alchemy, a Cheap Paper show

Well, Atlanta-based artist collective Cheap Paper's debut show was a major success! We had a HUGE turnout with all positive feedback. The empty loft space looked absolutely amazing after our 2 day renovation and hard work. Everyone's work looked great in the space!

The entire "AXIOM: baby proof" event, consisting of several Old Fourth Ward's empty commercial spaces turned into exhibitions, a live mural, Fundred Dollar Bill project, DJ, Drive by Press, and such, was pretty awesome.

***Special thanks to Public Acts of Art for getting this event to happen and Wonderroot for sponsoring the Cheap Paper exhibition! Thanks to Danny, Chris, and all of the other incredible people who made this happen!***

Cheap Paper: Atlanta's coolest Artist Collective!

Attention Peeps!

I am a part of a new, progressive Artist Collective called Cheap Paper, consisting of 12 amazing Atlanta, GA based artists!

"Cheap Paper:

Cheap Paper is an Atlanta-based artist's collective, committed to breaking through the recessionary haze to support new and fresh movements in the city's art scene. We are individual studio artists united by our inability to fear our circumstances, and instead choose to embrace them. We are resourceful, creative and determined - despite lack of time, lack of funding, or lack of studio space. We face a new era of art-making, where mediums are often intangible and disciplinary lines are completely broken down, and our "art scene" is not just local - it's global. We have a more serious responsibility to respect environmental concerns, and to work smarter and safer. As a result of these 21st century challenges, each member of our group works as an interdisciplinary artist, using alternative materials and techniques to address contemporary societal observations and concerns. As a collective, our goals are to support one another in our efforts to prove that it is possible to succeed as an emerging artist at this point in time, to encourage growth in our local art community, and to provide one another with fresh and critical perspectives (and maybe a bit of a safety net) while pursuing our individual goals.

In other words...
We make ART!
Please support us by becoming a fan of us on Facebook and following our blog!

Drawing for the sake of Drawing

This is where my mind goes to unknown places. And the absolute best places.

I think the clearest, process the most information, strategize the sharpest, problem solve the best, and have the most intimate thoughts with myself when I am drawing for the sake of drawing

I have been doing this a long time, like many artists, where I begin and end a drawing during a specific time-frame, event, or circumstance. In this drawing, I was in a talk/panel discussion with professional artists speaking about professional practices. Nothing was said that I hadn't thought of before, but in drawing things became clearer. I feel I processed the information better because of the way my mind, hand and whatever other force you can name, all fell in-sync.

I just wish all my other information gathering sessions allowed me this same opportunity.

Well, here is more...

Controlled Chaos- In-progress

This work is one of a series of 3 (as of now) I'm working on today. The works are 23" x 35" mixed media on mylar atop watercolor paper atop panel....confused? Me too. I'm thinking of controlled chaos in these works. I am working towards creating a pseudo science of my own via means of drawing, painting, writing, and fabricating my own data and data collecting method. Ill update as that eventually makes sense, if ever.

The burdens we carry

I have desperately tried to forget. I have done so in an effort to survive. But some things don't resolve themselves, as people so desperately want you to believe.

My [estranged] father is a chronic alcoholic and is killing himself while on a path to kill others. Withing the last year, he was arrested for the #th (?) time for a DUI, and finally, FINALLY, after losing dozens of jobs over the last 30 years, been reported to the board to have his Pharmaceutical License suspended-- indefinitely. Yes, that's right, he filled your family's prescriptions. In addition, he had lost several jobs before that, was evicted, totaled a car, and completely isolated himself from everyone meaningful in his life, something he has been working as for 40 years. Despite the fact that my father is he most arrogant and pathetic person I have ever come across, everyone in my family who can afford to pay for his rehab is refusing to. I don't know if it would even make a difference, but I still feel I need to try to find an affordable program. This is a miserable situation to be in as a family member of an addict: your hands are tied, and you feel like it is your fault/responsibility, yet you have to sit back and watch the train wreck--and this can be LITERAL.

It was how my aunt was killed. She was drunk and tried to beat a train over the tracks- She was killed instantly. She was young, in grad school, her whole life ahead of her, as they say. This little story is amongst the dozens of stories of my family members who have had thier lives somehow sabatoged by alcoholism and fallen victim to their own personalities.
The reality is my father may not even do as he is required to maintain his only contribution to society- his employment. In all other areas of life, he greatly lacks any purpose. I fear that with this newest development, he will no longer have anything stopping him from complete obliteration of anything in his path.

For me, family is so important. It is not something I can just walk away from. This doesnt mean growing up e all sat around the dinner table and chatted about our hopes, dreams, desires, or even our day, but it is something innate. Not all people feel this way. I get comments all the time in reference to the fact I usually always answer my baby sister's calls (which often can be rather needy requests). This is not something that is negotiable: I am there for my family, no matter how crappy our relationships, pasts, and situations may be. Period.

My family is tiny and dysfunctional. Most people say that, and sometimes it is true, but mine are truly larger than life characters, as there are fewer characters filling the stage. This means each person fills a bigger role of importance. And part of this cast is my father. The man who wished I were a boy, and still does. The man who beat my mother as our tiny faces watched in horror. The man who paraded us around his girlfriends all disguised as ever growing adoration for us. The man who [insert horrid things, the list goes on]. That man. That man I cannot help but love and try to remember as the good father he occasionally showed us he was. He is the reason why I exist. He loves me. He is funny. He is smart. And he continues to break my heart every day. As grown as I am, as self-sufficient as I am, as loved as I am, as busy as I am, I cannot ever escape the destructive power of his situation, and by circumstance, my situation.

People have told me, "you just have to move and live you life in order to survive" or "you've done all you can do" or "he can't be helped unless he wants help" and other similar statements of resolve and encouragement. Well, I speak from experience and say: That does not work. You can do as stated above, but every day, little moments are stolen by the fleeting massacre going on in your mind, in your heart and worst of all, your conscience. Logic does not conquer emotion. In 'rock, paper, scissors,' emotion is the scissors that cut right through that paper, logic. Its useless.

One must learn to live with the reality. I will survive. It is those moments stolen from me by my father that won't.

Color Bleed

This is another little still film I did for the (perhaps) love project. This film is a little more abstract than the last. This film is a documentation of color as it bleeds, mixes, and changes through time. It is intended as a parallel for the chemical reactions that happen in someone when they love.

(pehaps) love project panel 1 a

Panel bud 1 a, originally uploaded by RobinGillis.

When you are busy, the key is to keep it small...

This is one of 5 small panels under way for the (perhaps) love project. The idea is that there are 4 artists and 20 panels. Each artist will begin on 5 panels. 1 of each panel will be swapped with each of the other artists, 1 panel will be continued to be worked on by the artist (a self-collaboration, if you will), and 1 will be left alone in its minimal state.

In the end we will have mini-collaborations between each artists (1 from each artist starting the work first), mini-collaborations with ourselves, and 4 single panels that will show the "seed" of each artists idea.

This is the panel I will be collaborating on with myself.

Stage 1 completed of the (perhaps) love project phase 2.

We have begun... a large canvas, a canvas triptych, a series of mini-board drawings, and individual work (varied, of course).

My specific focus on the project is concepts dealing with chemical reactions and the science behind "love." Included in my work are marks, movements, and imagery that 'mimic' molecular bonding, neurotransmitters, and ect.

On to Stage 2...

I worry, thank god

Lately I have experienced what many people take advantage of every day. I have had the priviledge to live a "balanced" life. What an amazing feeling. I am so elated by the mundane. I say this is a privilege because it is. So many people in industrialized countries live as is they are entitled to health, time, work, housing, food, comfort, and family. These things are not ours to always have. Not all of us are born and given these precious things. Some of us have to work 20 times harder to reach equilibrium. I often am reminded that I am one of these people. There is an upside to this. I beleive, maybe falsely, that I am more appreciative of these precious things I have listed above than most. I listen to the "gripes" of people around me, and I wonder if that "gripe" ever even entered into my radar. Often times the answer is no. I wasn't worried about my GPA, I was worried about my father's blood alcohol level (at the same time maintaining a high GPA). I was never one to be concerned with fashion labels or impressing people. I usually was worried whether or not I would be able to afford any clothing at all. Even the thrift store shirts that cost $.50. I usually was wondering how I was to pay my bills that month, if my spoouse was happy, and wondered whether my family would make it.

My point is sometimes we forget to be thankful for the KINDS of worries we have. Some are superior to others. Analyze your own concerns: Do you worry about paying your rent or whether or not you get that internship? Which one REALLY is more dire? If you don't get that internship, will you be homeless? What about that GPA? Should you be thankful you even have the opportunity to have such things as "GPA"s, to be educated at all? We all say we work for what we have, but do we really? Have you? Look around, and be thankful. You are not entitled. Maybe just lucky.
I feel I am lucky. I am lucky to, at this moment, to have what I have. I have worked for every last stitch of it, but I am still lucky to have had the opportunity. I am so thankful to have what I have, so very very thankful. I have strived for the balanced life, the life I see so many has had given to them. Although nothing good ever lasts, I am taking in every second of this fleeting balanced life of mine.

"Portrait of a boy wearing a mask holding a rifle"

Interesting photo


Locked out from my love

My precious cat and I have been separated. I have locked myself out of my own bedroom, as my cat calls for me on the other side. I tried desperately to create a tool to break in and force screwdrivers to unlock the door and free my little pet. All attempts failed. I await my hispanic maintaince man hero to set her free, and then give a her a good pet (he absolutely adores this cat). Then, he shall conclude with an excited, "bueno!" as he does when he has finished a task in the apartment!
We will see how this drama unfolds. :)

Collab24a, originally uploaded by RobinGillis.

A new collab piece:

We will see what happens to it Thursday, which is the day it no longer will mine but instead another animal


I finally have purchased a digital camera, after years of borrowing. I actually realized that we borrowed this one video camera/digital camera (back in the day when cameras were not video but video was camera) for over 3 years, and technically, we did not own it. Weird.
I looked around for a while, read JD powers reviews, and researched deals all over. None of that helped, I was still just as clueless. Even more maddening is I found out a few weeks ago that this one Wolf camera location put a $500 DLSR camera on sale for $230...whoa! and of course, I missed it.

So I bought one that seemed like it had the features I wanted and lacked the ones I didn't. What is funny is it claims to "perform like a DLSR" without the DLSR price and bulk. It sold me!

The jury is still out, but hopefully it will have been a good investment. I am going to re-shoot, and re-document alot of my artwork, which seems to be a great way to break in a camera and analyze its performance.

Refer to earlier post "Collab19a". This is what happened after I decided to go ahead and collaborate on this piece. A very good decision.

I have decided to no longer apologize, feel bad, or guilty for being poor, in love, and trying to live a difficult life that will bring me joy. Yes, I have been lucky but people are lucky in all sorts of things: it is up to YOU to look around you to recognize your own riches, whatever that may be, and to take advantage of them. Yes, I have chosen a difficult path, which means sacrifice. Yes, it is true, I have chosen an even more difficult path on top of the already stressful, difficult life I was born with. But the truth is what I will put in now will pay off later in my life, if I am so lucky. So many people expect instant gratification for thier work and efforts. A truly meaningful life does not fit into this expectation. I have known those who complain about having to earn thier career, food, housing, art supplies, and everything else, as if that is owed to you? We all want to earn our keep in this world by doing what we love, but we need to WORK to get to a place where we are lucky enough to earn money AND fulfill our happiness. In the meantime, you are not a victim. If I were to look at my 10 years of working like that, I would have shot myself in the temple already. I have had to work for every stitch of clothing, every grocery item, everybill, every paintbrush, every particle of heated air in my own home for years, this is all while trying to maintain a life : friends, family, environment, and not to mention this little thing called college and ART. I can say I am done apologizing for having a hard life and have (possibly) coming out on the other side better for it. For those of you just now having to earn your way through life (whatever that means: money, career, responsibility, art), figure it out but do not blame the rest of the world for your position. Consider yourself lucky enough to NOT to have had to do that your entire life. Consider yourself lucky enough to have been born into a world that allowed you the ability to worry/work on a handful things in your life at a time, opposed to carrying a crippling weight on your shoulders, as I have for years. We all are lucky in our own way, and in the areas you feel luck has not touched you, MAKE your own luck. Maybe I have been hardened by my stressful life, but I feel I have earned anything blissful that has come my way. I have debt, both theoretically and financially, that I must pay for my bliss. Nothing is life is free, really, and for my life I have consequences. Be thankful, and make your own way. I have decided to celebrate my accomplishments and failures alike, because without them, I would be you instead of me, and that would be tragic.

To pass this to collaboration, or not to? This is the first time I have encountered this problem. I think I will, it was just the the feedback to keep it as my own threw me off guard. That thought had not occurred to me until that point.

But, as always, little seeds of future exploration have been implanted.

Jennifer@Mason Murer

As I watched my friend gaze at this beautiful painting, I thought about the state of "wonder." What a great feeling, to be in amazement. As artists, I feel it is more rewarding to try and be in a state of wonder than to pursue causing wonder. To cause awe has it's benefits, but maybe it is more impression than reality that fuels that idea. But curiousity, satisfaction, knowledge, and intoxication fuels the pursuit of wonder. I feel this is the worthier goal.

I awoke to the sounds of bats and birds chirping in my building today. Bats used to live in swarms at my grandmothers house, so I know thier sounds quite well. As a child, my grandmother and I would take graham crackers and milk and go outside after dark to sit on her front porch. we would do this all in hopes a bat would fly close enough to the street lamp and then we could get a good look at one.

Today it sounded as if the bats and birds were singing to one another.
