I am preparing for my October show at the Blue Wing Gallery, I continue to paint, think and observe the world around me. My initial conversation with Al Eby contained 15 pieces, of which I was very proud. My process is fairly rigorous, I try to paint at least one hour every single day and since that initial conversation I added two more pieces that I am proud of (not to mention the 5-10 studies and failed explorations). These two pieces represent a number of studies and thinking, going back to mid 2014. Often, I have ideas that roll around in my head for weeks, months.....they may disappear for a little while, but I always come back to them. My thought process when creating art always starts with a fairly serendipitous moment, sometimes it is in the shower, sometimes it is while I am driving home from work over the causeway, watching the sun fall over the coastal mountains. I enjoy creating art that can play a role as a simple aesthetic mechanism, and at the same time a metaphorical, thought provoking piece. I explore encoded social commentary, simplicity, big brush type paintings; I've been told my style is 'loose', but I just think it is 'me'.
This evening I delivered my 17 pieces of art to Blue Wing Gallery for archival scanning and framing, I am very content with the body of work I have built over the last 6 months. These works represent all of my subject interests, still life, abstract, and Urban Architecture. Please come out to the opening on October 2nd, from 6:00pm-9:00pm. I will be at the gallery the whole time, I have many stories about the pieces, the circumstances that they came from and my process for exploring art; This is a good opportunity to see an artist as an open book, and I hope to see you there.
