I had a conversation with a fellow artist last week who posed the question, "Why do you do what you do?" A great question. I work across many mediums but I am consistently drawn to subject matter of the land, our animal co-inhabitants and us. On a surface level, I am interested in how different mediums work, how I might push and pull and collaborate so that the finished result reflects me + medium. But my goal with all of the things that I make is to demonstrate the reverence I have for the land and these creatures we share it with. As someone who grew up in New York City, I didn't spend a lot of time outdoors. As an adult I feel lucky to have experienced wild and undeveloped places. These places have given me a sense of peace and hope when I feel lost or discouraged. They've challenged me, humbled me and helped me understand that I'm part of something larger. I am a product of the natural world, but I am also a member of the species currently destroying it. That's hard to reconcile. A division within the self. Maybe each work can be seen as an apology.

Happy Friday!
Realizing that it's very possible I'm making some of this work to keep me company during the solitary studio hours. That's not to say it's the only reason, but definitely top 5. Anyone remember the story Corduroy? I imagine this polar bear investigates my snack stash when I leave at night. 🤗🤯🤓

Another artist at 2129, Colleen Rudolf's work will be featured at the PSPCA's annual benefit this year. Tickets are still available for this event that supports Philadelphia's companion animals.

At this year's Bark & Whine gala we're honored to feature the work of Colleen Rudolf! Here's a behind the scenes look at how her pieces come to life. We can't wait to see them adorning the room on November 2.

This coming Friday, June 15th, VURT - Visual Urban Renewal and Transformation is hosting a fundraiser art show featuring the work of 30 different artists from around the country on the 2nd floor of 448 N 10th Street, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Bat Rescue. The proceeds from sale of work will go towards a flying bat mural and help raise awareness of the extremely sensitive and dangerous conditions our local bat population currently faces. It is a one night only event, from 6-10pm.
