Below are a few images from my recent exhibit, “Strange Little Books” This whole show came about because many, many moons ago, a young lady who was in college but working for a local rag, was assigned to interview me because my debut book Honey Badgers had just been published. Fast forward a chunk of years and Amanda Bloom now owns The Mercurial Gallery and Web Magazine based out of Danbury, CT
The setup for this exhibit was a sweaty challenge to say the least. Thousands of nails into the poor walls of The Merc, looped around with hundreds of feet of yarn all to recreate the concept and the main character’s journey in my most recent book, Mole Had Everything.
Books were provided for sale and signing at the opening by Byrds Books of Bethel, CT
A detail of one of the wall installations that wrapped the entire gallery.
This pic was posed by a photographer from The Danbury News-Times. There was a very kind story written about my show and my book. I thought the interview was one of best I’ve ever taken part in. Here’s a link to the interview and story. Also, here is a link to about 12 other stories written about my work since 2004 that I never knew existed…
Above is my son Oliver and his friend Alejandra at the opening.
