Making Art: Tiera Joy Floyd "Reality"
I don't think if I painted someone across the country – it wouldn't be the same painting, because I don't know them. This is my life and what I know. There's a lot of love and passion in my work because I want to make those people proud. I want to represent them in the best way.October 03, 2016

TOM SACHS "SPACE PROGRAM: EUROPA" @ YBCA
"I'm a sculpture artist, and I want you to look at these works like they are sculptures," Tom Sachs reminds us throughout his walkthrough of his newest exhibition, Space Program: Europa, opening this weekend at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. And yes, he is a sculpture artist, but he is also quite industrious and one of the most highly detailed-oriented artist you will ever see. These works may not get you to space, but they might? That is the feeling you get throughout this exhibition, and the artist reminds us: this work continues to be created in the spirit of the great American can-do spirit, where unimaginable heights were reached by the mere intensity of willing it to happen, ie, putting men into space and the eventual moon landing. But it is also made in the idea that why can't an artist be the one to make a spacecraft? Why can't Tom Sachs build sculptures that fly into space? And by the end of his talk today, we were all convinced that maybe we should believe it, too.September 16, 2016
