Name and title/occupation
Bhakti


What are you reading/watching/listening to?
Current books: Structures or Why Things Don’t Fall Down by J.E. Gordon and Cezanne, a thick catalogue about the life and work of the late artist, produced by the Philidelphia Museum of Art in 1996.
Listening: Henry Grimes, Bobby Frank Brown, and several mixes on spotify by my friend Par (eulipionsounds)
Watching: the many birds in my neighborhood during sunset walks with my dog and the occasional fog roll.

How has your work changed now that you are doing it from home?
Work continues… Im still working out in the world and at home. I have more time to focus on paintings in the studio and gardening daily.

Have you taken up any new activities?
Emailing. Its ok.

What are you looking forward to doing once we are no longer sequestered?
Surfing (above all other activities), going to see live music, hugging people again and not being so weirded out by each others personal spaces.

Do you have a MOCA memory that you want to share?
MOCA is the art institution where my career in the arts began so its place in my memory bank is very high. I have so many GOOD MOCA memories, but one that stands out is seeing Yoko Ono do a performance with Bonnie Clearwater at a nearby theater in Miami Shores. It was awesome.
