LISA ON LISA

In August of 2015, I flew to Tucson, Arizona to interview commercial artist Lisa Frank. Lisa and I grew up in the same suburbs of Detroit, Michigan and both attended Cranbrook Schools, built by the late Eliel Saarinen. I learned we share an affinity for Memphis furniture. I’ll never forget her rabbit ballerinas on my elementary school folders.

FLORINE

I was given the opportunity to guest edit Issue #3 of FOUNDATIONS Magazine, a young art based publication out of New York. My grandmother, businesswoman Florine Mark, ended up on the cover. I wrote personal prose to accompany the photo story on the inside. She was CEO of the Weight Watchers Group when I was growing up. Her driver would take us to and from temple on the High Holy Days. Minoru Yamasaki designed Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan as well as The World Trade Center.

INFORMATION

I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1988 and received my BFA in Fine Arts from The School of Visual Arts in New York. Following graduation, I worked at Gavin Brown’s enterprise while maintaining a studio practice. In 2015, I acted as contributing guest editor of FOUNDATIONS Magazine Issue #3, an art based publication, which launched last September at MoMA PS1. I featured my grandmother as the cover star, accompanied by personal prose. As well, I interviewed commercial artist Lisa Frank, at her headquarters in Tucson, Arizona for the FOUNDATIONS website. The article was reviewed by New York Magazine, ArtNet, and The Creators Project/Vice. My zines, Lovesick Rodeo and Joyride, are featured in The Newsstand, part of the Ocean of Images: New Photography 2015 exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. I hung one of my Gold-Bears paintings at The MoMA on December 8th, 2015, in a special exhibition titled Zine Time, curated by Pau Wau Publications. This year I have shown works at Frieze NYC, The Armory Show, and exhibited my first solo show “Good Buy Human” at the The Breeder Gallery in Athens, Greece.
