BLOGS
wofflings.wofflehouse.com
Yes.
It's true.
Even I am still coming to terms with it, but I've decided to unleash my excessive wofflings in the form of a weblog, at long last.There are many arts-related goodies that I've been wanting to post about, and this seems like the most appropriate forum in which to do so.The compulsion to share too much, too publicly has become something of a national disorder, so I’ll try to keep Wofflings engaging and entertaining, but not too confessional. I swear to you that I will use this tool for good, not for evil.

WOFFLES/GALLEONS
Momentum is building fast for Galleon Trade, the project I'm organizing for
the Mag:net Galleries in Metro Manila this July. The blog will soon be host to the most dynamic updates on the status of this project, but in the meantime, you can see the burblings of this beast here:

"[]" (2000) PRINT (45/100) by MAX COLE
Location: Green Bedroom, Pygmalion-Second Floor

SECOND MENTION DUE TO UPDATE:

Max Cole will open a new exhibition entitled "Paintings from the Autumn..." at Haines Gallery, San Francisco, to run from March 1-April 7, 2007.

"Cole's work has been described as obsessive, but she prefers the term passionate, as it is self-determination rather than compulsion that urges her towards creation and completion. Cole does not rely on a preconceived plan; the work unfolds through time and rigorous process. She has let her work evolve over the past 30 years with little control over its direction. What results is an expression of serenity and transcendence. "

SIXTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE}

UPDATE:


Maureen McQuillan just opened a solo exhibition at McKenzie Fine Art Inc. through March 17, 2007. McKenzie is at 511 W. 25th Street, NYC 10001. Here's an excerpt from the gallery's press release:

For nearly a decade, Maureen McQuillan has been exhibiting works using viscous ink lines embedded in resin or acrylic polymer; in her new work McQuillan has changed her ground from paper to canvas in order to create larger and more intricately layered imagery than was previously possible. Here, multiple translucent drawings overlap one another to create a stack of interlocking images. Successive wave-like bands thus combine to create a topology of honeycomb-like structures, oscillating lines like variable frequency sound waves and large grids which stretch, twist and overlap to map undulating surfaces within the work. Now, as before, the images appear to be derived from technology of some sort, but actually arise out of a systematic overlaying of the surface, a mechanically repetitive process that is, paradoxically, also open to incident and chance. By drawing out the ink in a series of tightly controlled actions, McQuillan achieves images which have the appearance of being too complex to have been made by hand. The optical effects and spatial ambiguities combine to engender an energetic atmosphere of instability and uncertainty – one that perhaps reflects similar conditions prevailing in the contemporary world at large.
