A New Book is Formed

I made a new book recently. Its a 10 color risograph book with unique suminagashi printed covers. Signed and numbered in a limited edition of 66 and lovingly handsewn with dental floss. You can get one at Cinders or at Printed Matter in NYC.

STP with Tom Hohmann at Oleno Winter Gathering

Here is video of a performance I did with Tom Hohmann (of USAISAMONSTER) on drums. It was a super fun secret show in the woods of Florida with Holopaw, Ann Pragg, Beth Jaye and Soda. The place was a beautiful old lodge about 40 mins from Gainesville. We all stayed in cabins, made chili and cornbread for everyone who came and had a big bonfire! Below is a couple pics i snapped walking around the morning after. Such a cool spot. Video by Andrew Chadwick!

FORMING

STO LEN

FORMING

Opening Reception Saturday January 11th, 7-10pm
With performance by Stolen Temple Pileup
January 11-February 22, 2014
FLA GALLERY
10 Main st., Gainesville, FL 32601

Forming is a solo exhibition of new works by Sto Len that focuses on water as a central theme within a series of personal sigils, rituals, visions, and chance operations.

These paintings feel like winter days when you look up and wish for the sun but instead see faces in the clouds that begin talking to you. You spill your fresh cup of coffee on your clean white shirt while talking to them (they are bemused) and all of a sudden it looks a whole lot better. The symbols on the wall are hieroglyphics, maps to resuscitate the past and hint the future. Hanging like flags and scrolls, they declare no one country or language but rather a feeling.
Parts of the page splash and crash like cars in black rainstorms, leaving puddles of sumi ink to soak the paper while snake-like lines tie knots and squeeze the blank space dry of all its worth. Layers of lines interweave together like gnarled barbed wire fences or tall radio towers that invite you to climb to the top to check out the view.

Next is the Next Level


I recently had the pleasure of making an improvisational silkscreen book here in Berlin with my friends Meeloo and Anna at RE:SURGO. We just went in and drew a bunch of pictures together on the fly and then silk-screened them with tons of colors, hand bound with thread, and made an edition of 59 in like 3 days. pretty cool.These guys work fast and I love busting things out with a real sense of urgency. It makes for honest work when you don’t have any time to censor yourself. It’s just drink coffee and go go go. I attached some pics for you to see of us working in the shop and some of the finished book. Get a closer look and purchase a copy HERE

Nice Age

I’m always seeing tons of cool photos of great shows in front of my mural that wraps around the stage at 285 Kent in Brooklyn. This is one of the better videos I have seen and it captures the room quite well.Not sure if I like Iceage or not (I’ve never seen them or heard their records) but this is cool anyways.
