Practice notes — Since the Spring, having entered the second year of the Covid-SARS2 pandemic, I have shifted my art practice toward a one-day-at-a-time ethos. For example, this means a lot of projects came to a temporary halt as I decided to spend those days on my flower garden. The garden aims to supply flowers for artmaking. I have also dialed back my time spent targeting and planning to exhibit this year. I will pick this back up in the coming weeks. Since the end of August I have been taking photographs both in my organized project and experimental spontaneous modes. However, unlike previous years—dating back to the start of my professional endeavor in 2014—I am adding most photographs to a workflow queue rather than processing them right away.

These decisions follow from my estimate of how I need to take care of myself under the cloud of the pandemic. My wife and I take the risks extremely seriously, and count ourselves fortunate to own a house in which we can shelter from the health and other storms. We work together to manage risk and reduce pressure. 

Because I am not (right now!) producing finished work, I am not adding new pieces to the web site. Older artworks have been posted. The big web housekeeping project, reorganizing and re-rationalizing the catalog of circular artworks, will be reactivated once the photo shooting season has come to an end. The fullest presentation of round artworks is on the Facebook photo pages. Pictured at the left is a recent work-in-progress, Stop Gap Dahlia.

I have been making a lot of under-two minute videos on my iPhone. These experimental efforts have me pondering whether I should be gearing up to add original music to their ambience. Because I shut down and ‘de-wired’ my recording studio in 2016, diving back into sound design and composing does not suggest itself to be in alignment with the current ethos. However, I’m starting to hear my music again and this has proven over past decades to be an inexorably compelling siren song.

Be well, stay safe, 

Stephen

Charin Lemon Roots has been juried into the annual Peer Show at The Cleveland Print Room. Due to the pandemic this show, one of the few national calls on the local calendar, will take place online. The Peer Show opens July 2. I’m honored to be included in this exhibit for the second year in a row. 

The Cleveland Print Room’s spacious gallery is open to the public. Although the Peer Show will not inhabit this fine space this year, the gallery is always a must-see location on the region’s art map.

Everyday Ascent #2 - Stephen Calhoun   May 21:2021  

Everyday Ascent #1 has been juried into the 11th annual May Show at The Gallery at Lakeland Community College. This artwork is my most well known piece, albeit it was an excerpt that benefitted from its being on the cover of the CAN Journal’s second quarter, 2019, issue. Now anybody may see the full artwork. I’m very tickled to return to the May Show at Lakeland, one of the handful of regional shows that attracts hundreds of entries and sifts these down to, this year, 114 artworks. This exhibit always does an excellent job of highlighting some of our region’s best work. I am honored to be a part of this showcase.

Stephen Calhoun - Conflux #10   March 26:2021 UPDATE

Today I receive my second Pfizer shot. Thank you very much!

The second year of the Covid-19 pandemic begins now to unfold toward its hopefully favorable resolution, although this hope of mine reflects my privilege at the same time it underplays the differentials evident in various national approaches, some of which may weigh heavily on all nation’s public health.

I have exhibited very little over the last year. I haven’t left the house much either and this has supported my most productive year for doing various experiments. This also results in the stockpiling of the most creamy results of over one hundred experiments. Yet I am not ready to be enthusiastic about exhibiting in the future. Certainly, I am looking forward to showing the world what I feel is my best recent work, but this is mediated by the challenge of the current conditions.

Sadly, with the terminal deprecation of Adobe Flash, I no longer have access to Leonardo Solaas’s Doodl Dashboard, a Flash-based browser application that was the principal generative ‘re-painting’ tool I used for all my photo-generative art experiments since 2015. His programming was a work of genius. I am grateful to have figured out how to control its parameters in ways that allowed me to create a lot of very compelling work. Brisk Totem for example.

A door closes, another opens. Right now I am learning how to control a autonomous blending application on the iPad for the sake of creating stochastic generative images—which is to say manipulating mostly original and some net art sources through procedural and combinatorial blending of layers. This process  instantiates a high degree of randomness. It’s power is in (my) choosing sources while letting the randomness eventually blend the 2-8 layers into a candidate or keeper.

Lo-Fi video symmetries and animations (for LED 8k video walls) are also eating up some of my mad experimenter’s time.

Stay tuned. Be well. Stay safe.

The upcoming Trippy Trip Exhibit at Yards Projects at Worthington Yards will include a selection of recent artworks. The group show aims to represent all sorts of varieties of trips. (I’m especially pleased to be showing with Kasumi Filmska, who is to my mind by far and away Cleveland’s most important, internationally renowned, artist.) The space is large, airy, and may well be the best exhibiting space outside of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Transformer Station, and MOCA. The exhibit opens November 14, runs through December 31.

Although the Bruegel Seminars: Guest Lecture was installed in the Member’s Show, The Artist’s Archives of the Western Reserve, the exhibit is unavailable due to the novel corona virus-19. The worldwide public health challenge is a 100 year event. Its most humbling aspect is its scale. Stay safe!
Garden Staff Four vII - Stephen Calhoun  

March 6:2020
Garden Staff Four vII will be part of the annual member’s show at Heights Art, Cleveland Heights, Ohio. It open March 6 and runs through April 18, 2020. This is the first time my artwork will be shown in my hometown. (Two weeks later my third solo show will open at the same venue.) It is said about Cleveland Heights, “a third of the area’s artists reside there.” This would roughly mean three to four hundred artists live in Cleveland Heights! I’m not sure about that, yet forty of the area’s artists will be presenting their artworks in the member’s show. CLOSED

The Bruegel Seminars (s2) Seminar Seven (2018) Stephen Calhoun 32x50

The Bruegel Seminars, Series Two, Seminar Seven has been juried into Boschian: Beautifully Bizarre at The Box Gallery, Summit Artspace, AAkron, Ohio. The Bruegel Seminars is a seventeen artwork series inspired by the Neverlandish family Bruegel. The historical connection between Hieronymus Bosch and the family Bruegel is obvious. No at all obvious are the many vectors of inspiration and influence between those masters and my own body of work, an opus that is not painted or print-making. 

Summit Artspace’s main gallery, 140 East Market Street, is open weekly Thursdays and Fridays, noon to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m.  BOSCHIAN: BEAUTIFULLY BIZARRE opens Friday, February 20 at 6pm, and runs through March 28. CLOSED

Stephen Calhoun - Mind Buds  

January 10:2020
Two artworks, Mind Buds and Ceremonial Chip #2, were juried into the group show, FRESH 2020, at Summit Artspace in Akron Ohio. This 16th presentation of FRESH supposes “Art that will be accepted as part of this annual exhibition must be innovative and challenging to both the viewer and the artist. Accepted artists will have pushed the boundaries of what art can be– stylistically, conceptually, or technically– and will challenge the viewer to see the world through a new lens. Accepted work will feature novel styles, original thinking, and demonstrate a high level of skill in the artist’s chosen 2D or 3D media.” I’m deeply honored to have two of my image-making approaches recognized for their innovation. This is the second year in a row I have been so honored.

Summit Artspace’s main gallery, 140 East Market Street, is open weekly Thursdays and Fridays, noon to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Additional hours include 4-7 p.m. on Jan. 16 for 3rd Thursday and the Feb. 1 Artwalk, 5-9 p.m. FRESH 2020 opens Friday, January 10 at 6pm.
