DOEprojekts' TAOS • Prep for 2019

What is a TAOS? -- it's a "Tiny Apartment Open Studio!" 

We, Deborah and Glenn, DOEprojekts art collaboration, exhibited in our 280 square foot (26 square meter) live/work space to friends and artist colleagues in the early weeks of December 2018. 

We displayed projects that we have created or re-created during the past 2-1/2 years living in our "tiny apartment" in Midtown Manhattan.  A short video "walk through" of our TAOS can be seen on our DOEprojekts' Facebook Page.

We continued our form-explorations in urban-nature by creating Coreforms in white rocks and autumnal leaves in the courtyard attached to the c. 1880s apartment building in which our tiny apartment resides. The courtyard can be seen by standing on the fire escape of the back of the building OR, by visiting "Extraordinary" gift shop on the first floor of 247 E. 57th Street, NYC.

In the past few months, we have continued to explore various printmaking techniques, especially in relationship to our upcoming workshops titled "Bauhaus and Beyond." The Bauhaus' (1919-1933, Germany) teachers and students worked toward a universal language of form, a process that interests both of us as we continue to work and develop our Coreforms, which we consider a 21st century universal language. The Bauhaus became synonymous with a certain modern style -- minimalist, geometric, abstract -- but those associations do not tell the whole story. If you are interested in learning more, please email us about our workshops!

We were delighted to make the acquaintance of master printmaker Pepe Coronado, who directs Coronado Print Studio in East Harlem. Read more about the studio and their artists on their website. We look forward to seeing more of Pepe, his work, and his studio exhibitions in 2019.

Thank you to all of you who have supported our work in 2018! We wish you a creative and prosperous New Year and look forward to keeping in contact in 2019!
