This has been such a joy to work on, I'm so happy to have the space to pin it on the wall (even if it is on top of an older piece). Here is the newest pen and ink work in progress. Tenebrae, my faithful assistant is in the picture as well, she is always within arms reach and I've even set her up with her own chair (although she tends to steal mine every chance she gets).
Hello once again from this crazy studio!! I have been working, I swear! The intricate, smaller works are coming along and should be ready to post in a few days. Exciting! So, what else have I been doing you ask? Framing. It's not easy to find a frame for a six foot drawing. My work will be included this month in "A Fine Line: Contemporary Drawing" Exhibition at the Claypool-Young gallery at Morehead University in Kentucky. It was juried in by the contemporary artist Anne Harris.
I had never been to Kentucky before so what did I do? I rented a van and carted the huge piece out there myself! Beautiful state! I loved it so much I'll be back to see the open exhibition and to hear Ms. Harris's talk on the 16th. Nice drive too, those 775 miles flew by! Here is a picture of the framed behemoth when it was sitting in the garage before I loaded it up.
Please join us for two upcoming shows in the month of February! If you are out and about the Carolinas, you are in luck! I will have a few paintings on display for Greenville Tech's painting invitational held at the Riverworks Gallery located in beautiful, scenic, downtown Greenville, SC, (with the reception on the 22nd? more information as I get it).
The month of February also marks the date for the opening the much anticapated
“Standard Deviations”, a gallery show consisting of multiple narratives derived from modified prints. The original two-hundred and fifty engraved
linoleum plates are displayed humbly in the center of the gallery and are
surrounded by a false horizon composed of the roughly seventy narratives they
were used to create. Here, in this
meditative space, everyday objects are rearranged to become elements for
strange figures and landscapes, which ultimately raise the question as to how
we really relate to the objects in our everyday world. WONDERFUL! This show will be held in the museum at Western Carolina University, from Feb 21st-March 1st with an opening reception on Feb. 28th! I'll be there, and I hope you will be too!
