Woven work "Chrysalis" by Jeannie Ortiz.

Building and adding content constantly that is the way. Jeannie and I are creating a new art project together entitled Intentionally Confusing and if you would like a more detailed look at our art practices on a daily level I would encourage you to go there. Think about that site as our long term answer to how do we get off of social media. I hope you like it.

This site is my archive of work. It'll take some time to be fully flushed out as I have much old material to fully document and share in this space. Luckily there is plenty of interesting material already here on this site to keep on entertained for hours. Good luck getting lost in these pages.

Continued work on the new website, still much to be done but working efficiently to be done by May 11th, 2021. I am working on the about section currently and then will focus on getting a projects section up with description of the various projects and bodies of work I have produced.

The Oeuvre will take quite some additional time to finish, realisitically probably years but in time all works I have documented (which is most of what i've created) will be documented in the Oeuvre.

The Caballo Mountains to the south of Truth or Consequences display a truly astounding cross section of earth’s time; rock layers begin in the Precambrian and continue through the present. Geological time travel: dinosaurs and coral reefs, fern forests and redwood trees, mammoth hunters and atomic bomb builders.

It’s really no wonder that time does not exist in this town – we are but momentary guests in this desert oasis. Experimenters in living: trailers and gardens. Craft essential. Fermentation and broken homes walking again. Expressions of radical identity, intentional or not. Randomness. The inkling we too should live the path of endless migration like the Sandhill Cranes.

Beer, finally! Floater houses. Hotel beds and daydreams of refurbished adobe. Eclipses and the rainbow season. Oh! he rainbow season. Mad Max motor bikes with chopper handle bars and chainsaw motors. Algorithms and targeted digital advertising. Lamp-making, now there is an idea: Fiat Lux!

Friendships and tribulations yield stronger bonds and family: river float, potluck, hot springs, bbq and beer (perfect summer day). The blinding white light of 116 degrees Fahrenheit: June. Rattlesnakes and mosquitoes. Oryx, elk, mountain lion, deer, mountain goats, turkeys, coyotes and javelinas. Tarantulas. Bob Cats.

Scrawls on a rock and spray paint on a wall: lore and myth making. Blossoming community, ethos, identity. New voices echoing up and down the Rio Grande rift; mountains rise, valleys sink. We articulate stories and birth future artifacts with our bare hands. No longer murdering mammoths with Clovis points but still in awe of nature.

We etch our story upon this intergalactic oasis; time traveling the eons among fossils vibrating ever so slightly in dance as they know our gaze is upon the piercing crystalline stars in still primal deserted darkness. We are temporarily tethered nomads enshrining mythologies onto the grand arc of time and place which is this bend in the river, heated by sleepy super volcanoes.
