Wall\Therapy 2013 Tuesday Update 7.22.13

The sun is not as hot as it has been, but don’t tell that to the Conor from Cork (Ireland), who is turning as red as a tomato nonetheless.  Not that he minds. “I love the way random people say hello to you in the street in Rochester,” he says on his Twitter feed from atop a cherry picker as he races across the wall.

Aside from Conor, we have a description directly from Gaia (below) of his new wall that is gradually being unveiled, and a nice collection of new shots from the action underway yesterday at WALL\THERAPY of works around town including stuff from Bile, Daze, Freddy Sam, Lady Pink, LNY, Saint Monci, Mr. Prvrt, Pose2, and Wise2.

Special thanks to photographers Mark Deff, Jason Wilder, Alex Stuart, and Lisa Barker for sharing these great process images with BSA readers.

Check out the MAP of all the WALL\THERAPY spots at the end of this posting too.

Gaia knocked out a grid-like series of 18 white windows on the entire side of a building and began placing items within. He says there are a mix of the Giambologna Mercury figure, the aqueduct building (presumably the Roman Aqueduct), Rochester’s own Xerox Tower and a young anonymous kid.

Of the 18 sheets of paper that are copied across the wall, “It is a poetic xerox reference to shifting industries that move more swiftly than communities of people and culture,” says Gaia from a cherry picker.

Saint Monci gave a dramatic overview of his upcoming attraction, “My work, as of late, has really been inspired by the color and warmth of classic technicolor films; old sci-fi movies of the 50s/60s in particular, ” he says as he traces out the new wall. The palette is inspired by the red and green of vintage 3D glasses, which works out great since the building he is working on was actually a movie theater from the 1920s through the 50s. He’s also got a show coming up in September here in Rochester called  ‘Adventures in Technicolor’.  More on this wall tomorrow…
