On the heels of my sold out show on Buy Some Damn Art, I have finally found a new studio. First to BSDA: Since it was my first on-line solo exhibition, I didn’t really know what to expect when the show launched last month. I also wasn’t sure how collectors would relate to my Nasoki Collage work since it didn’t look like anything else Kate Singleton had previously shown on BSDA. Because the time zone for Spain is six hours ahead of New York, I was able to view the launch but it wasn’t until I woke up the next morning to see that three pieces had already sold. This was half of the show in just one day! These paintings on paper were all sold within the first week of my six week show. I sent this little work on paper to the collector who purchased the last piece of the show as a thank-you:
Nasoki Collage 5, 2011, acrylic on paper, 11″ x 13″ paper size
I spent a couple of months painting at my Calle Puerto Rico studio late last year but decided to look for another more vibrant scene in which to work and participate. I always knew that Sporting Club Russafa, an artist collective and studio, would be perfect for me but getting in was another issue. So after trying to get in this studio for a year, there was finally a vancancy! Here is a picture of the main work area in Sporting Club Russafa which is a warehouse type space in the Russafa neighborhood of Valencia:
I’ll be one of seven painters and sculptors working in the studio along with performance artists. Josie McCoy, a well known English artist, will be my studio compañero. She paints photo realistic oil on canvas portraits and exhibits in London. There is also a permanent stage for the performance art and concerts as well as a large exhibition space at the entrance where I hope to show my paintings in the next year or so.
