Exhibit B of my red/green theory debunked.
I used to think that Christmas ruined the combination of red and green for everyone...somehow @domesticarchitecture found a way to prove me wrong.
One Day at a Time really hit me in a way that I needed right now. It creates a welcoming and approachable space that I haven’t felt in an art setting in a while. It captured artists who create art out of their own need to make who are unconcerned with the marketability of their work. It is beautifully mundane. For 40 minutes I sat and watched a video of 5 nuns in Ireland going about their day and it was exactly what I needed. I have been worried that I don’t have anything worth saying. This show has reminded me to enjoy the small corners of artmaking. I will miss Helen Molesworth’s curatorial intuition. This was such a good show. . . . #termiteart #onedayatatime #mannyfarber #beverlybuchanan #patriciapatterson #roymcmakin #thankyouhelenmolesworth #helenmolesworth #moca #contemporaryart #sculpture #artstudent #losangeles
Inspired by the age-old question "what's your favorite color?," local artist Roy McMakin created this mosaic masterpiece as part of the Mural of La Jolla series. #VisitSD 📷: @lsymss . #SanDiego #LaJolla #MuralsOfLaJolla #LaJollaLaJollaLaJolla #RoyMcmakin

Many years ago we went to this home, the entire interior transformed by #roymcmakin pieces. It went right over our heads. The paintings at that time were also #johncurin . Ahead of the times. Al went to college with the owner.

I've admired this twirling ampersand in Olympic Sculpture Park for a while now. But only just now realized the entire piece spells out Love & Loss. 💕 Artist: Roy McMakin #art #wordplay #ampersand #roymcmakin #seattle #mixedmedia #love #loss #SAM #olympicsculpturepark #絵 #シアトル
Celebrating love & loss in Seattle’s wonderful Olympic Sculpture Park. I had such a lovely time walking off any jet lag in the unusual space, conveniently located right on the bay - & you know how much I love being by the water! Love & Loss is an outdoor 2005 mixed-media installation by Roy McMakin, you have to physically get into the art to get the full picture. . . . #seattle #washingtonstate #olympicsculpturepark #artstag #artstagram #loveandloss #roymcmakin #love #loss #parklife #prettycity #solotravel #solotraveler #gosolo #goadventure #goexplore #exploremore #artistsoninstagram #gooutside #sheisnotlost #explorerbabes #wearetravelgirls #gltlove

Yesterday, I took a rest day. My back and shoulders were sore from working out this weekend and I just had too much on my plate. -------------------------------- I am planning to take my boys and pup out this morning for a leisurely walk, but I am still thinking about the fun "urban stroll" around La Jolla that we did last week with @hikeitbaby. <> is up and you can learn more about what we saw on our adventure in this beautiful seaside community. ------------------------------------------ #fitmom #fitfam #sweatpink #sdmom #sandiegomom #sdmomblogger #sandiego #lajollamurals #muralsoflajolla #lajolla #roymcmakin #ig_motherhood #thehappynow #mytinymoments #mynameismama #acupofmotherhood #kidsforreal #storytellingmama #motherhoodinspired #igmotherhood #parenthood_unveiled #lifeasmama #parenthood_moments #joyfulmamas #littlepiecesofchildhood #instamom #momlife #momcommunity #momentsinmotherhood #magicofmotherhood

Ampersand from the Love & Loss #RoyMcMakin piece at Olympic Sculpture Garden
Garth Greenan Gallery is pleased to announce "Three Gallery Artists," a group exhibition of paintings and sculptures at 545 West 20th Street. Opening tomorrow, July 12, 2018, the exhibition features a selection of work by gallery artists Mark Greenwold, Ralph Humphrey, and Roy McMakin. Andrei Bely, the Russian poet, theorist, and literary critic, described the work of his peer, Anton Chekhov, as an assembly of minutiae—“loops from the lace of life.” In the work of Greenwold, Humphrey, and McMakin, every instant is the first and last; a precarious present shot through with the scar tissue of memory. Featured in this exhibition, is Roy McMakin’s “Chest of Drawers with Table” (2016), pictured here, alongside many never before exhibited works. Installation view: “Roy McMakin: A Table,” Garth Greenan Gallery, New York, September 29–November 12, 2016. #roymcmakin
This Thursday, @garthgreenangallery opens 'Three Gallery Artists,' a group exhibition of paintings and sculptures by #MarkGreenwold , #RalphHumphrey , and #RoyMcMakin . Scroll 👉 for a preview. #IndependentGalleries

Happy Pride! Quoted in Genre Magazine in February of 1995, Roy McMakin contemplates the duality of being both gay and a designer, as well as the gendered aspect of his art making: “Whether or not there is a gay sensibility in my work is part of a huge question that I can’t readily answer. Why are a significant number of gay men into things like home decorating? I just don’t know. But, it’s true that who I am is obviously inseparable from what I do as a designer. In design, there are definite issues of gender. I’ve played with that in subtle ways. I designed a set of chairs for a breakfast room. They were great, but they were very boxy and square. They needed something. So I put these really frilly green skirts around seats. It was perfect—they were like chairs in drag.” Image: Roy McMakin, “Nightstand,” 1999. Enamel on eastern maple. 24 3/4 x 19 1/2 x 36 1/4 inches. #roymcmakin #pride
Now that spring has blossomed into summer we can't help but reminisce on the cherry blossoms at the #OlympicSculpturePark !🌸 Park-goer @eunoia_beautiful_things captured the flowers lit up by the ampersand in Roy McMakin's "Love & Loss." Tag us in your photos at SAM and maybe we'll share yours next! _ #FlowerFriday #OlympicSculpturePark #RoyMcMakin
Be proud. Be bold. Be yourself. 🌈 #pridemonth #pride #roymcmakin #favoritecolor “The idea was very simple. I have always, since a child, been intrigued at both my own emotions around color preference, and also others. It has been important, and part of my identity to know what my favorite color is. I often recall times that I discussed color with my friends as a child and the talk always centered around preference. And I have found as an adult that most people still enjoy sharing what their favorite color is."
Join us on Wednesday, June 27 as we walk through the village and see our favorite murals and favorite colors.

“What’s your favorite color?” #RoyMcMakin 🔷✅⚠️🛑🚺🧡
(Matthew Higgs’ Sunday Frieze Art Fair Instagram Takeover #5 ) Hudson’s desk and chair by Roy McMakin, 2001. ❤️ I’ve organized a special section of Frieze New York next week that will celebrate the visionary art dealer Hudson (1950-2014), his gallery Feature Inc. (1984-2014), and many of the artists he championed. Hudson had the most prescient eye. Just as we have the figure of the ”artist’s artist” Hudson was, in so many ways, the “art dealer’s art dealer”. Over the course of 30 years, initially in Chicago (1984-88) then later in New York (1988-2014) Hudson not only changed our understanding of art, he also changed the course of art history. 🙂 Roy McMakin made custom furniture for Hudson and Feature Inc. - inc. Hudson’s personal desk and chair, and (famously) the stairs from the gallery’s 25th Street location. 🙂 The section at Frieze will include eight solo and two-artist booths featuring artists first championed by Hudson including Tom of Finland, Takashi Murakami, Raymond Pettibon, Andrew Masullo, Tony Tasset, Dike Blair, Tom Friedman, Jason Fox and Daniel Hesidence. There will also be a special curated booth presented in collaboration with the ‘Feature Hudson Foundation’ and supported by our friends at Uovo, that will include the work of another 14 artists associated with Feature Inc. (inc Roy McMakin.) If you plan to attend Frieze NY next week - be sure to stop by! 🙃 #hudson #frieze #friezeny #friezeartfair #featureinc #foryourinfotainment @nicellebeauchene #andrewmasullo #judylinn @tomoffinlandfoundation @davidkordanskygallery @davidzwirner @raymondpettibon @takashipom @gagosian @canada.nyc #jasonfox #danielhesidence @kavigupta_ @tonytasset @stephenfriedmangallery #tomfriedman @karmakarma9 @dikeblair #featurehudsonfoundation @victoriamaysiddall @loringrandolphny #judylinn #bwurtz #roymcmakin #lilyvanderstokker @lisabeck58 @sam_gordon_ #luckydebellevue @richardkernnyc #nancyshaver #kayrosen #davidshaw #kevinwolff #davidrobbins #kinkekooi @uovo.art @friezeartfair (Image: Roy McMakin, ‘desk and chair for Hudson’, 2001.
