I was focusing on an over-arching theme of rebel romance, at times fun and dangerous, and other times dark comedy. The themes tied together a span of things including Korean War jet design, early biker gang culture, Bonnie & Clyde, prison breaks, classic high-speed chase scenes from films, and pulp book covers.

My work relies on man-made materials to create artificial environments that suggest “beauty” assigned to the natural landscapes or environments.

IEI Austin's Debut at the Graeber Estate

A unique townhome on the National Register of Historic Places, the Graeber Estate at 410 E. 6th Street, was the home of renowned Architet David Graeber. In the late 1960s Graeber was one of the first to embrace downtown Austin living and began converting an 1880s Saloon (The Shamrock) into a 4800 squarefoot residence, where he lived for 40 years.

As the property transitioned to a commercial space in early 2013, IEI Austin installed and curated It's Envronmentally Inspired, an exhibition with more than a dozen local artists in a 3-week debut pop-up gallery and events space.

The exhibit featured "upcycled art" made from discarded post-industrial materials, and celebrated sustainability in subject, materials, or process.

Throughout February, IEI Austin held multiple events with the exhibition and historic building as a backdrop, reflecting our mission of promoting local visual arts community, and connecting people, businesses, and brands around the themese of sustainability and design.
