RJFC Hits Art Week Miami 2016

I took the opportunity to head down to Miami again for Art Week in December of 2016. I literally got blisters on my feet from walking so much. I managed to meet many great artists and see a lot of inspiring work. Only put up 3 pieces on this visit but I was pretty happy with them. rjfc sticker # 82

RJFC sticker # 82 was made on a CD label using trash from the street. It was completed on 5/12/16 while sitting at the Starbucks on Belcher at SR60 in Clearwater, FL.

Then I arranged only trash found on the streets of Miami. I started it while sitting at the Starbucks at 2937 Biscayne Blvd, at the intersection of NE 30th Street on the evening of 12/3/16, then finished it after midnight in my room at an Air BnB apartment in Little Haiti at 335 Northeast 53rd Street.

I left it the morning of 12/4/16 on a wall outside the Lulu Laboratorium on NE 23rd Street at the intersection of NW 1st Place, right beside a SacSix piece of Oprah Winfrey. This was about 2 blocks from Wynwood Walls, and just a block away from Panther Coffee, where I was meeting Colorado artist Frank Kwiatkowski an hour later.

Relationships CXIV & CXV Collab w/ RF Côté

Relationships CXIV & CXV were completed on January 13, 2016 while sitting at Starbucks Park Place in Pinellas Park, Florida.

For this piece, I used an old used DVD+R (i think I found this one on the ground?) and I separated the top plastic layer from the bottom magnetic layer. This was to be a collaboration with RF Côté in Canada, so I sent him both halves to finish off and he sent one back to me. The center face part of this collage, was from a Pinellas County Sheriff’s office Wanted Flyer of a wanted criminal. The rest, I just tried to mirror in compositional elements.

This (below) shows the CXV half with RF Côté’s collaboration which I received back from him in April of 2016.

I left it in a little, transparent informational flyer box, just outside the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College in Fort Myers, Florida on 5/9/16.

I don’t think I ever saw how the other half came out.
