The summer of 2011 has been one of the most eventful of my life.  We began with a work/play trip to Europe for the month of June.  I taught my usual workshops in Madrid, we popped in at Art Basel in Switzerland, and finished out the month with a week in Venice to take in The Biennale.  All was grand.

A day after returning from Europe in late June, I suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.  These sorts of events only have about a 6% survival rate but my wonderful wife acted quickly and my life was saved.  I’ve been in and out of the hospital for the past two months dealing with various complications but I appear to be in the clear at this point.  Armed with a state-of-the-art pacemaker/defibrillator, I am better than new.  I am now ready to take my bionic self and get back into the creative process once again.

Needless to say, the summer was not productive for me.  I planned to get a lot more done in July and August.  I am currently working on enlisting some student assistants this Fall who can hopefully help me catch back up.  There will be more work on the way but it might take a while before it appears on the website.

So, please stay tuned and take note of the three exhibitions this month in Jacksonville, Chicago and Groningen, The Netherlands.
