New Works, New Themes

Just posted a bunch of new images in my gallery, before to give it a look and let me know what you think! All works have been completed with the last 4 or so months. So the next SNAC show is going to be a series of diptychs dealing with duality. It should be interesting to see what everyone comes up with. My idea is probably going to be around villany and virtue or vices and virtues. Thoughts?

On and a side note, here's a shot from a painting in progress. Lately I've been working on wood instead of canvas. I've gotta say, I like constructing these wood panels far more than I enjoy stretching a canvas. This piece is 24 x 96 all in acrylic. Been working on it for a couple of days now, should be interesting to see where it goes from here. Keep posted for more progress pics!

Work of Art

So I just finished watching this week's Work of Art on Bravo. As much as I despise reality TV, I cant help but to be sucked into this show! Next week is the finale, cant wait to watch! I'm routing for Abdi. That kid has some serious talent.

The challenges they've been posed with have been quite interesting. I constantly find myself asking, "What would I create if I were in their shoes" most of time the time, the answer is "I'd be screwed!" haha I've gotta give it up for them, there are some seriously talented young artists on this show.

New Series Started

I recently started a new series of work that I'm excited to dive into. I wouldn't say my NOLA series is finished, just on hiatus for now.

Been experimenting with a new color pallette, trying a few new techniques. So far I'm pleased with the progress. I've got 3 new paintings started, hopefully will have some pictures up soon.

The new series of work (yet to be named) will probably have 2 very different palettes. One palette will be very warm with a lot of reds/browns/oranges while the other will be very cold with a lot of blues and whites. Can't wait to get some finished pieces up on here!

The new body is going to revolve around this Russian folk tale that I've been near obsessing over for the past few months. It's a tale about a parapelegic boy who longs to walk again and dapples in astral projection. Its nuts! There's also a sub-plot with Rasputin and how his destiny is intertwined with the boy.

Not the typical subject matter I tackle, but I think it'll be a refreshing break for me. I'm going to try and post some in progress pics soon!

I'm working on some new upcoming shows. Stay posted for details!
