Working Small

After finishing my first year teaching the city,  moving into a new apartment, and getting a new kitten named Gypsy Danger, things are finally winding down and allowing me to work again! Well, I've always been working, but now I'm back full throttle. I have been starting to work smaller and will be updating the site soon, so please be patient. In the meantime, I have included a work that did me well this last month, "A Foolish Sheep Makes the Wolf Her Confessor".

Thanks again for supporting my work!

Checking in

It has been a while since I have last posted, but fear not!  I have been working on drawing over 1,000 ears of corn for my next piece so I am, pardon the pun, up to my ears in it!  It has been slow going and the finished work seems as if it will be roughly 10 feet long and in three pieces! Wow!  I am really excited for this piece called (tentatively) "Rich Men Keep Their Souls Under the Covers of Their Cash Boxes"

Wish me luck! I better get back to work, but here is a snippit of one of the components I finished a few weeks ago.  Tell me if that little lady looks familiar.

Showing this month

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.

UPCOMING SHOWS FOR FEBRUARY

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!

Chattering Triptychs

Whew, What a week!  I am up and working again!  Nothing feels better than ink on your hands and sawdust in  your hair.  I am currently working on a sculptural triptych that will go into my February show.  Since it's still in the early stages, I will leave you with this little beauty I am tentatively naming "Chatter".
