"We Dance to Pray"

Day two of working on the wall piece found me making a lot of progress. So much progress that it's complete. I'm going in to look it over today and make any small adjustments that I deem necessary but yes, I'm very pleased to have gotten so far with it. Images of the completed piece will be released after the opening next week-Friday, September 6th, 6-8:30pm at the Bridgette Mayer Gallery

The title of the piece came to me earlier this morning, while I was trying to get back to sleep after waking up much too soon. I'm calling it, "We Dance to Pray", an homage of sorts to my love of house music and the soulful, ecstatic, positive, enveloping warmth that it can bring about.

The show is hung and today I got to work on a site-specific wall painting in the rear of the gallery. I'm really excited about this part. The main work is done, the bulk of the stress has lifted and now I get to have some fun. I'm approaching this work in the same way that I approach the paintings on panels and canvas: act, react and act some more until it's done.

"Presence": Solo Exhibition at the Bridgette Mayer Gallery

"Pink Mirror", 2012, acrylic on panel, 36" x 36"

I'm pleased to announce my next solo exhibition at the Bridgette Mayer Gallery, "Presence".  Presence will consist of paintings completed in 2012 and 2013. The new paintings explore themes related to physical and sensory experiences related to identity and place. There is also a continuing engagement with linear mark-making that defines space and form in my work.

Interviewed for "Ahtcast"...

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Phillip J. Mellen for his artist interview series, "Ahtcast". So, sit back, relax, and listen to me ramble on (and laugh nervously) about the things I do when no one is looking...
