Exhibition ---- Review on Hyperallergic

I was in this show recently at the Gowanus Ballroom. It is a tremendous space and there were many very talented folks in the exhibition.The entire show tended towards performance pieces and installation, although I don't normally do installations, the folks curating it wanted to show my work and we came up with a cool way to make it fit. I wound up building a shell of a child's room. This art site Hyperallergic went by and reviewed the work.

More images are on the Hyperallergic link.

"Cuddle Up.''

"Don't Hold Your Breath."

I have been making wood sculptures. They are all whittled out of basswood.
They are primitive versions of the stuffed animals. Then I am referencing them for painting. Taking things in a new direction.

A good home.

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting with some collectors of mine. Lovely folks who really enjoy art. Truly sincere art collectors in my opinion, people who really care and go to great efforts to present the art they acquire in the best possible way. It is nice to see people who are genuinely excited by the effect art has on day to day life.

Daniel Maidman -v- Art

Daniel Maidman is a friend, painter and thinker. In his blog he has broken down some ideas about the elements of art and how we view paintings. He used some of my work as example of these new elements to consider.

Hey y'all...

I have two paintings in a group show at the New York Academy of Art.
It's a huge small works show, so come on out and get some art...doors open and sales begin at 6:30pm.

Go Get'em!

These two pieces are more experimental than anything else. I have always loved monotypes and reductive paint work. Pulling paint off the surface and leaving gestural evidence of process has always blown my hair back. In my process I really prepare my canvas to such a degree that it might as well be wooden and it takes forever. I have messed around with mylar on wood before and I know I'm not the first painter to do this but for my work it made a huge difference, giving me a push and pull that is rare on canvas. So anyhow, here are two Mylar Head Studies. I was invited to show these in the NYAA small works show (see invite above).

"Mylar Head Study 1"
