3 tempera paintings from my “Not to Be” series complement a compelling work of fiction by Ryan Douglas in the Spring 2019 issue of “Open Minds Quarterly.” The venerable Canadian journal publishes work dealing with “mental health challenges, mental illness, madness, and/or neurodiversity.” openmindsquarterly.com/
A short print residency at Cerritos College gave me the opportunity to become reacquainted with silkscreening and etching. Thank you Sergio Teran.
Grateful to be included in Issue Nine: The Cleve, of Full Blede. Thank you Sacha Baumann. http://www.sachabaumann.com/full-blede
Happy to have linocut prints included in the ambitious collaborative print project: ImMigration at the 2019 SGCI/Texchange event in Dallas, TX.
Several artists have been given the opportunity to create art at Pasadena’s Armory Center for the Arts to occupy 8' x 8' foot spaces. I am making a number of items entirely from scrap materials, mainly wood, and I’m partnering with Greg Jezewski, who is also making his portion from scrap, mainly bottlecaps. Greg is a madly inventive artist whose primary subject is usually baseball.
If you find yourself near Pasadena between Dec. 22 – Jan 5, perhaps you can check out these “scrapworks” and the other installations. The Armory Center website has the dates and times when they will be open. Please note that they are closed Dec 24-26 and Jan 1.
“Tower” in the Remembrance catalog from the recently ended show at the Autry Southwest Museum.
“Adrift” in Fallbrook Village!
Thanks to Apéro for including “Babel” in their “Gather”-themed September 2018 catalogue.
Card for the NELAscapes exhibit at Avenue 50 Studio, August 2018, showing “Arroyo Forms 1.” LA Artnews has been generous in their coverage of my work, including last year’s show at Future Studio and NELAscapes this year.
Thanks to The HAND, the magazine for reproduction-based art. They kindly published Skylight, Vault and Planks in their July Issue 21.
Studio view – as clean as it gets!
Pleased to have a 2-color linocut, “Grove”, included in AIR, WATER, and EARTH, curated by Kim Abeles, at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center. Apr 22, 2018 – Jun 10, 2018
Thanks to Artillery Magazine for selecting my drawing, "Stagger," the winner in their Art of Drawing Spring 2018 Instagram contest!
Master of Light Robert Hale sat me down for a portrait when he visited my studio during the Arroyo Arts Collective Discovery Tour last weekend. “Bullpen” is behind me. Thank you Robert! Check out his work on his website: www.rhalefoto.com
Karrie Ross' anthology, “Best of 2016 – Art & Story” features more than 30 artists writing about the most memorable piece they completed in the year 2016. I have one included with a b/w repro of “Tower Ex-Voto.” The book is available through Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Our-Ever-Changing-World-Through/dp/1546652450/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496636513&sr=8-1&keywords=karrie+ross
Thanks to those intrepid enough to make it to this portion of the site. I don’t anticipate posting here regularly or with any frequency, but I did want to mention a couple of things.
At the moment I’m participating with a couple of works in an exhibition at Los Angeles' first museum, the Southwest Museum, which is now under the auspices of the Autry Museum. “Fort the Love of the Arroyo” a very nice show,. Curated by Raoul de La Sota, and it runs through June 18, 2017. At this time, the Southwest Museum is only open on weekends.
I’m hard at work preparing for a solo exhibit at Coagula Curatorial, located in LA’s Chinatown. I’ll be showing the new “Woodworks” paintings. July 8 – August 13, 2017, are the dates. Anticipation and anxiety are my current companions.
And I’m grateful to PoetsArtists magazine for a 2-page spread in Issue 85 | June 2017. The painting, “Racks” is featured. Interestingly, they altered the painting a bit by eliminating a blue tint in the windows. Presumably this was done so that the work will adhere more closely to the issue’s theme, “Idiosyncratic Monochromes.” Not sure yet how I feel about that.
