Over the years I have participated in many intimate, artist-run residency programs, including Peter Dudek’s Bascom Lodge project, Austin Thomas’s Pocket Utopia, Helen Chellin’s Red Cinder Creativity Center, and Simon Draper’s Habitat for Artists. During each residency, my work moved forward in unexpected ways. With these experiences in mind, in 2015 I introduced an artist residency at Two Coats of Paints’ HQ at 55 Washington Street in Brooklyn. The residency program’s goal is simply to provide a short-term space (up to one week) where artists based outside the NYC area can hang work and have studio visits with curators, other artists, and gallerists. For the time being, because space is extremely limited, the residency is by nomination and invitation only.
