Here's one of my few and far between personal notes on this blog. Early this morning around 1:38am, my dear cat and best friend Jack passed away. It really does, but I am comforted by the knowledge that he is no longer in pain. He will be dearly missed. A special thank you to all the sweet notes I received earlier.

Julian Montague's new solo show is opening at Black & White Gallery (Chelsea) on this coming Thursday. I've been a huge fan of his work since "The Stray Shopping Cart Identification Project". Definitely check out his new series, "To Know The Spider".

June 5 - July 12, 2008
To Know The Spider
Julian Montague continues his investigations into overlooked realms of daily life. In his highly acclaimed Stray Shopping Cart Identification Project exhibited at the gallery in the fall of 2006, his method was to build a system of classification around a mundane object. In To Know the Spiders, Montague mounts a visual exploration of seemingly mundane animals – the spiders that occupy the peripheries of human architectural space. His process begins with the collection and killing of a spider. He then studies its face under a microscope and from the resulting drawings creates a portrait of the spider in the form of a fabric banner. The banner is then placed and photographed in the exact spot of collection. The banner illuminates the presence of a silent witness and sometime symbiotic partner while also serving as a memorial to the spider that had to die for that understanding to be gained.
