Beam me up, Fluffy!


Not much art going on this week, other than emails and boxing up stuff for shows. Also thinking about what I’m going to say for a full hour at the Modern Materials opening weekend artist’s talk.

I was going to transport this quilt to the Untitled [Artspace] gallery via space-age technology, but the space-time portal didn’t reveal itself in time. So I had to fall back on FedEx.

FedEx is not a bad second option though. I usually use the second-day delivery, and have always been happy with the ease of computer-generated labels and email confirmation of delivery. The routine is so regular now it’s almost boring — roll it, wrap it with fabric, wrap with plastic, box it, label it, stick a letter in it and ship it.


However, give me a Sharpie and that girl who likes to draw and hasn’t gotten out much lately takes over.  mmbox-elephant.jpg Although I can’t say for sure what that elephant is tossing — a peanut or a caterpillar? (click for a closer look)


However, Mochi, the supreme guardian of all things postal that come and go through the front door seems unimpressed by my wrapping, boxing and excessive taping technique. (By the way, have I ever shown you the impressive stainless steel floor in the lobby that she guards?)

  1. Hi Emmie, it’s actually a little like a quilt because it’s made up of 58 pieces. I don’t know how he got them to fit together so nicely, but then I don’t piece fabric either!

  2. Love the cow and sheep. Covered in flowers; maybe I’ll paint Mandy. Want to see more. I’ve always thought that a gorgeous floor, but in this picture it looks like flowing water or a sensuous fabric. Ummmmmmmmm.

  3. Actually it’s a she, but you probably can’t see her pink-polka dot collar since the photo’s a little dark. She was Sheepish when I told her to pose by the box — usually she’s not so pensive, but she is a big baby!

  4. Hugely whimsical animals…..all but Mochi, who is waaay pensive! Is he a philosopher? LOL Yep: the floor is great! I love the quilt!


  5. That is an awesomely impressive floor! I’m also liking the light fabric in the cow, and both cow and sheep are making me think of Wallace and Grommet and cheese on the moon.
