Haley C #2
Ryan recently introduced me to his studio assistant, Giordanne Salley. Sometimes she is there, sometimes not. She just had a show in the lower east side of Manhattan, she has her own studio and practice, assisting other artists is a way she makes some extra money while staying connected in her network.
We are getting ready for a show Ryan has in the future. When I have to stretch really big canvases, me and Giordanne do it together with each of us on opposite sides of the frame. By working with someone who has more experience than me I am able to learn easier and smarter ways or tricks. Both Ryan and Giordanne teach me the importance of economy, doing things smart, that time is money.
