Disco Sweat, 2014
"Disco Sweat" (Reprise 2014) is a collaboration with Evan Wright, a Los Angeles artist that previously worked out of First Street Gallery in Claremont, California. I was very fortunate to be paired with Evan, a blind artist, who although he cannot see with his eyes, creates amazing paintings and sculptures prolifically to themes related to food and pop culture. I think for this reason, I hit it off quite well with Evan, and upon my second meeting with him, he started mimicking Richard Simmons’ exercise moves. That was it! I knew I had to collaborate with Evan to create a reprise of Richard Simmons’ Disco Sweat exercise video, and this is the “fun”tastic result!
