This piece is from the Journeys, States & Locations show way back at Joel Beck & Jessica Murray's Salon 75 on Roebling. This was the first showing of my work which blended murky pop colored liquids and surreal light sources, with landscapes, portraits and psychologically loaded objects. #1 of 5, cibachrome mounted to plexi.
Completed in: 1996

Near or in NYC, NY / United States

The adopter, Karen Schechner, writes:
I love the way Tilt-A-Whirl's fuzziness plays with ambiguity and imagination. It's sort of simultaneously innocent and ominous, carnival-esque and industrial. I wanted it and then wanted it some more the longer I stared at it.
When I first saw it on FAAN, I immediately emailed Dave to make my plea, and hoped no other potential adopters would convince him that they were worthy of Tilt-A-Whirl. After Dave was kind enough to respond that day to tell me the good news that T-A-W was all mine, we found out we have some things in common -- both queer with queer sibs who we love and who love us back, making us all, in a way, one big happy fegelah family.
Dave is clearly sweet and generous and talented, and my girlfriend and I appreciate his letting us ride Tilt-A-Whirl off into a green and purple sunset. Viva la FAAN!

I posted this piece on xmas morning around 10; went out with my partner to see a movie and returned at 1pm to find an adoption request!
Karen wrote that both she and her female partner love Tilt_A-Whirl, and in the spirit of the day I was very happy to tell her the piece was hers.
Karen is a writer and editor. She wrote a piece about FAAN for New York Press.
