Content, subject, art, nature, self, my leg, this moment, you reading this, the thing-feeling-energy-desire that compels us to do this or that, and of course, the open book of run on sentences that is art and nature into which we can dive as deep as we want. These are a few of my favorite things. #studiothoughts #contemporaryart #cvforcatskillwaters #artandnature ...

Hi everyone! This is a new account I’ve started with catskillwaters exploring connections between art and nature. Think of it as Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy, without Jack Handy, deadly serious and only about art and nature. Now you got it! #cvictorforcatskillwaters #artandnature ...

Scouting potential spots for site specific work for Catskill Waters. I love this place, X marks the spot, and yes, the pay phone works. #cvforcatskillwaters #catskillwaters #chrisvictor #sculpture #installationart #contemporaryart #fineart #cvictorforcatskillwaters

Here’s an initial concept for one of a couple site specific works I’m making with catskillwaters . This one will be planted next to a defunct coke machine. It’ll passively collect water and incorporate the almost certain repeated vandalism that will come its way. I’ll reinvent the piece each time it’s messed with. #vandalismcollaboration #cvforcatskillwaters #catskillwaters #chrisvictor #sculpture #installationart #contemporaryart #fineart #artvandalism #watercollection #waterislife ...

Owner Paul Hnatiw tells us—his store is the only gun AND convenience store in the county. The name of the store, 3 Goldens, refers to Golden Retrievers he used to breed. He no longer does that professionally but he still has his own dogs.

Chris showing his sketch to Paul. I had no idea how he would respond to our idea. Politically he is conservative and a gun rights advocate, with some strong opinions that would place him at the opposite end from positions found in typical supporters of contemporary art. But Paul got right onboard!

Chris will be documenting this process and his interaction with Paul.

I am feeling as elated seeing this image on my feed as I’m terrified. My heart is beating faster as I wonder what Paul will think of this. Feels like this project is doing exactly what it was intended to do, but I wasn’t quite prepared for what it would look like in real life. But that’s what art is all about.
