1. Privates Exhibition Catalog

Selections from Mauser and Albright’s personal art collections were installed on a two-walled construction within the gallery, suggesting the pages of an open book, and ultimately a space between exhibition making and publishing. New constellations of artworks were re-arranged over the duration of the exhibition and documented to become an online and printed archive. Privates highlights how artistic behavior creates and supports intricate systems of association and reference within our own homes. Thus, the semi-arbitrary accumulation of artworks and discrete objects that constitute our personal collections intersect and exist parallel to studio practice. The collections expose a spectrum of value systems that connect exquisitely handcrafted one-of-a-kind objects to second-hand finds to internet marketplace acquisitions to bootleg fabrications. These accumulated objects represent the variable systems of value, labor, exchange, negotiation, and giving in which artists exist.

3. Empirical Discourse: On Holograms, Vol. 1, Second Edition by Nicole Mauser.

A ‘zine that aims to collect fragments of physical thinking to include the objects and ideas that drive process, subject matter and color palette choices. Before/during/after painting in the studio, Mauser attempts to follow the logic of pictures which demands slowing down, retracing my steps for deeper understanding. Lately, her interests are central to chroma as light which is a form of energy. This ‘zine is a collection of things she's looking at and recalling while in the studio.
