congrats GAP recipients!
materialized vase, slip cast porcelain, 7" x 10" x 5", 2008
i was looking over the GAP recipient list yesterday and i saw erich ginder among the luckies. congratulations are in order... erich ginder won a nice little sum to work on the creation of a large cave-shaped portable gortex structure that will be habitable and address specific needs of the artists in a collaborative effort with artist garek druss. garek works to examine the similarities and differences between the habits of the musician and visual artist. through this piece the artists will call into question our ever-changing interaction with the surrounding landscape
i have very fond memories of hanging out with erich and bobby aiosa (who I blogged about here); back when erich's studio was still in the international district and he was still making antlers in-house. i'm seriously looking forward to seeing what they come up with.
some of erich's other work:
installation at hiawatha artist lofts
mansion chandelier, laser cut aluminum, glass and stainless steel cable, 36" DIA x 11.75", 2005.
...kicking myself a little for not applying as someone kept trying to get me to...
next year, right?
