Requests the Pleasure is a series of 45 unique prints made in 2006. Each print is a personalized invitation addressed to specific gallery's staff, dealers, and owners in the current operations of 2006. Requests the Pleasure emphasizes the artists naiveté about approaching the commercial art world industry, about the social protocol, the political dynamics and how to get one's foot in the recently windexed gallery door.
The series is comprised of the following invited guests:
Larry Gagosian, Julie Machado, Kathy Grayson, David Maupin, Rachel Lehmann, Courtney Plummer, Marion Goodman...to be updated.

A little backstory: The artist created the Request the Pleasure series after her recent migration to New York City post graduate school. She was placed in a temporary job at the conglomerate, Conde Nast, where she was completely forgotten about by her superiors, leaving her alone in the Southeast section of the cubicle-divied up building to make artwork every day. She utilized all the wonderful technologies of the workplace, including the hi definition laser printers of her abandoned cubicle section.
