My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I paint for fun and profit.

I'm polite - gentlemanly. I have a deep, abiding love for difficult art, arty movies, and uncomfortable music. I'll never shy away from an intense discussion. I visit museums (I get in free) and galleries, relax over a drinks and good food, and revel in my vices.

Born and raised in Detroit. Brooklyn ⬅️➡️ Hamtramck
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Painting and traveling for shows. Forgetting to eat lunch but remembering to grab ice cream at the market. Building a black hole from scratch.

My cats were recently featured in a six part telenovela about the New York art world.

Took French so I could paint in Tarnac and visit the D'Orsay some day.

Retiring in Sicily.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Traveling lite. Cooking. (My eggplant parmesan is as good as my grandmother's). Making / drinking good coffee, making out, and arguing philosophy with non-professionals.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My shoes, beard, curls (if the air is dry).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Art: Manet and Renoir (late), Kai Althoff (always Kai Althoff), Ree Morton and Paul Thek. The Barnes!

Books (recent): The Accellerationist Reader, Decline and Fall, The Empathy Exams, At Swim-Two-Birds, The Painting of Modern Life, How to Cook a Wolf, the Ethical Slut. I'm a subscriber to the Times Literary Supplement, which means I'm superficially conversant in a wide array of esoteric academic topics. That sounds douchy and boring but you'll just have to trust me that it's cute.

Movies (recent): Cabaret, Birdman, Under the Skin, Breaking the Waves

Tv: The Wire and The Thick of It

Music: I used to be in bands (indie / mathrock) (Lately): Ke$ha, John Cale, Empire State Games. Converge and Braid for all time.

Food: Sushi and Burgers +
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
painting, (creative)sex, why my insta likes max out at 23. Tony, wondering where he could be, who he is with, what is he thinking, is he thinking of me, and whether he'll ever return someday.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working in the studio, listening to Bob's Burgers.

I'm very social and active in the art world. If I'm going out, I'm usually with art-friends, going to galleries, looking for somewhere to drink and talk shop, somewhere to dance, maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm married and separated. We've been best friends since forever. We aren't a couple anymore, we don't live together, and we're both pretty cool with it. Cool? Cool.

A celebrity couple you might know were given a painting of mine as a wedding present.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
My professional world is fascinating, but small, so message me if you want to:
*tell me about your play / research / dissertation or want to show me what you're building / listening to / seeing / putting together / taking apart.
*dance like you don't give a fuck.
*grab a coffee, or a cocktail, or both, though preferably not at the same time.
*make out in public, or secretly

or, you're Jane Levy (a boy can dream)

Now what you wanna do?
And who you wanna do it with?
Me? That’s cute. okay!
