L-R: myself, Colby Caldwell, and Jason Gubbiotti (photo: Jayme McLellan.) It’s been many years since Colby, Jason, and I have been in the same physical location, though we communicate regularly about art and life. Jason has an exhibition on view at CIVILIAN, and Colby came up for that, as well as my project at 1700 L Steet. Before Jason flew back to Paris the three of us had a parting drink at Jayme McLellan’s house. Colby’s comment: we come from different disciplines (Colby = photo, Jason = painting, James = digital), but unlike our teachers who socialized by medium, we’ve maintained an ongoing conversation across media. Here’s to another 20 years of trash talking.
