JOEY GARFIELD, ‘The sound of Never’ Opening Saturday, May 18th at SILO ART SPACE

Award winning filmmaker and artist, Joey Garfield (who co-directed ‘The Run Up‘- a documentary series produced by Upper Playground) is opening a show in Chicago at the Silo Art Space. The show titled, The Sound of Never is described by Garfield as the following:

“Music, attitude and simplicity is constant in my work, the repurposing of wood and found objects keeps me grounded. I love the snap, crackle, and pop of vinyl when it played or even broken. By organizing and remixing the vinyl shapes in my art, it allows me to celebrate the old school while keeping it all new.”

Cody Hudson for Juxtapoz Magazine

Juxtapoz Magazine went and shot some footage at Cody Hudson’s studio in Chicago, and shot Mr. Struggle Inc as he was constructing one of his wood art pieces. We always liked how Cody’s work had a very unique style and cut to it, even they way he cut wood was interesting, and this just captures the nice simplicity of it all.
