Well... I'm terrible at keeping up with the news I guess... my last entry was in 2012
Its been quite a year to say the least, and I'm even more excited for whats in store for the next one.
I've had 4 exhibitions this year in Cleveland. They were all a little varied but it was great to focus on local exhibitions.
I was in a duo show with Mark Slankard (photographer) at Heights Arts Gallery last March (Thank you Andrea Joki)
Dana Oldfather at Bonfoey Gallery put together a great group exhibition titled Contemporaries 13 witch also took place in March
This year was also my CPAC grant year, and as a result, I stepped out of my studio to engage in some non-painting related projects.
The first of witch was 'The Tent Project'
With the help of my studio assistant David Freno, we sewed 35 red canvas tents with the intent to do a series of amorphic outdoor installations
With the help of some great friends, we installed this array of a campsites in Corinth VT. The project location expanded with the aid of Boston lutheir and good friend Adam Kology to Sand Dunes National park CO and southern South Dakota as well.
The photographs documenting these installations were later exhibited at Alex Tapie's Gallery Survival Kit
Whilst all this was going on I was also participating in Zygote Press' AIR program, and taking a spin with printmaking at Cleveland's renowned printmaking house. The residency culminated with an exhibition titles 'Cleaveland' Details from the exhibition can be found on the Printmaking
page of my site. Thank you Liz Maugans!
Well, with that all said, I will be hauled up in the studio this Fall Winter and Spring working on a new large series of paintings based my recent travels and experiences. These works will be used for a solo exhibition at Galerie D'Este in Montreal that slated from May22nd - June 8th. Wahoo
I'll do my best to keep the site updated with new works as things progress
