Alchemy conference

The truck’s loaded with four easels and paintings, ready to go. Cameron and I will leave early in the morning. I guess I should pack a bag now. I’m speaking about my work to folks at the conference tomorrow evening, showing a powerpoint and revealing some hidden secrets in the images.

Loading the truck was very fast, moving paintings isn’t terribly hard as long as they are well padded and well secured. Crating them is essential for other people to ship them of course, but for a trip like this I’m content to wrap them in plastic and blankets, then tie them securely to the sides of the truck.

I’ll show Bombers, Fama, The Aviator’s Dream and The Reluctant Death of Modernism.  Fama  The Death of Modernism  I appear to be lacking a decent picture of The Aviator’s Dream in it’s completed state on the blog. I’ll try to remember to post one after the conference is over.

  1. No longer there. I’ll look into it. I don’t have a copy myself.
    I’m glad you’re making alchemy related work. I hope you’ll learn and enjoy as much as I have from studying the work.

  2. Hi Michael,

    This is an unrelated comment, but I didn’t see an e-mail address to contact you. I just found your blog via Wikipedia and am really excited to read through what you’ve had to say about alchemy and art, as I’m making a series of pictures right now that is related (in my own way, at least). Anyway, I saw on your Background page that you’d linked to a video of a lecture which unfortunately is no longer on YouTube. I was wondering if you might know where else I could see it.

    Thanks 🙂
