I'm excited to have work in 2 venues for B-LA Connect, an international exchange between art spaces in Berlin and Los Angeles. I'll be showing three sculptures from my White Rabbit series in Didn’t you know what you were carrying on your back? at ROSALUX curated by Sean Meredith of Track 16 gallery (Details and press release here). I'll also be part of Call & Response, an exhibit at Kronenboden in which myself and other members of Monte Vista Projects in Los Angeles collaborated through a series of postcards with the MADLAB collective of Rotterdam (Details and press release here). There are 20 spaces involved in B-LA connect that will be showing work this June. For all the details check out the B-LA Connect website here.
Saturday, June 1st through Saturday June 22 I'll be showing a group of 14 small sculptures at Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City, Michigan alongside Bodies Of... an exhibit of contemporary ceramics.
This little pair of Persian Spaniels will be on view, along with several other new things. If you happen to live in that area stop by and see the show!
I'll be participating in an artist talk with Simone Gad & Marsian De Lellis as part of our exhibition Stuck Together at Track 16 Gallery. The conversation will be led by Marcus Kuiland-Nazario. Come say hello, see the work and learn more about what inspired this show.
Thursday, April 11 at 7pm at Track 16 Gallery in the Bendix Building, DTLA.

I'll be showing a new body of work in the back gallery at Track 16 as part of Stuck Together: Marsian De Lellis, Simone Gad & Debra Broz. Over the past 2 months, I've collected and altered 25 ceramic rabbits originally created in the 1950s and '60s by the Japanese company Lefton. White rabbits are albinos created by selective breeding and have been a prime source for fur and animal testing, but they are also a symbol of Easter and the catalyst that brought Alice to Wonderland. My White Rabbits are a study of variations on a single form, each alteration is a walk into the realm of possibility with an animal that represents the dual worlds of science and magic.
From the press release:
Track 16 presents “Stuck Together,” an exhibition featuring Marsian De Lellis, Simone Gad, and Debra Broz. The three Los Angeles-based artists create a handmade response to mass-produced images and objects, re-contextualizing and re-purposing through collage and assemblage. The work consists of anthropomorphic imagery—animals and representations of bodies. Each artist imparts into the work an aura that is both ludic and obsessive, and each artist gives attention to objects and creatures that might be discarded, and instead reworks, reinvents, and gives the objects a chance to stand up, warts and all.
Runs through May 11.
See the press release for more about the exhibit here.
Stuck Together opens Saturday, March 16, 7-10 pm and will be up through May 11 at Track 16 Gallery, 1206 Maple Ave, #1005, Downtown, Los Angeles, 90015
