Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my friends. Hope this New Year brings happiness and health to all! I have some good things happening in 2010 and one is that I will be a part of a group show coming up in February. I will be a part of the "Enormous Tiny Art Show" at Nahcotta Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. I love this show and am very happy to be one of the artists participating....more on that soon.
Have a very safe Happy New Year!!!

Katherine Mitchell at Sandler Hudson

Tonight is the opening for Katherine Mitchell 7-9 pm. I will be posting pictures later next week of this show. Her recent exhibition at Sandler Hudson Gallery entitled, Correspondences, Conversations and Texts, deals with the origin of her drawings and paintings which involves text and forms a departure from her past, purely geometric and abstract works. Katherine Mitchell is recently retired from Emory Visual Arts Department having taught there for almost 30 years. She will discuss these works at an artist's talk on Saturday, December 19th, 2pm.

Gone West

I took a trip out west to LA and a little vacation in San Diego with a girlfriend to check out galleries and see what's happening. I was happy to be there when a lot of openings were going on. It was nice to check it all out and get a feeling of the scene there. LA has so much going on that I could have stayed much longer to investigate. I have felt my color sense would be a great fit there. I am hoping that I have made some good contacts and see where it may go. I love the fact that the weather is so amazing, it can only help people get out and go gallery gazing. I was very impressed with the turn out for so many shows. I was also happy to have such a good friendly experience. The west coast is laid back and happier I guess. Below are a few shots I took at some galleries before the openings started. The first one is at William Turner Gallery in Santa Monica at Bergamot Station. It is work by Eric Johnson. Bergamot houses a complex of galleries. This was a great many galleries at one place and easy to get to and from. There were many galleries in here I enjoyed.

Eric Johnson at William Turner

I was lucky to get a chance to see these beautiful structures in person. Please click on this link:
Eric Johnson to see more. Eric creates composite works of pigment, wood and resin. These abstract works merge the passion for depth and structure with an obsession for color and surface. Being a part of the California hot rod culture in the past, he has incorporated industrial products and automotive knowledge into his art making. (this was part of his statement on William Turner's site) Here are a few shots of the show. I will be posting more to come in the next few days of more amazing work.

Working on Larger Works

This is a painting that is an extension of my small works on paper that explores veils of colors. They are many layers beneath with washes in between.

Nature Series Collage

This is a series I am playing around with. I love the abstraction found in nature and the amazing subtle colors vs the crisp punches of color.

Friday, May 8, 2009


I took a trip to WV to visit my brother and really got a lot of inspiration from the amazing natural beauty there. I took a ton of photos and have managed to create a series of some really interesting images that correlate to my new work. I love photography and I am so inspired right now. I will post some of the abstract nature series soon.

more fresh work

Fresh Work

love having a clean studio. I spent yesterday cleaning, organizing, and getting things in order. I am really excited about a new series of work I am doing which is a slight departure for me. I feel like I needed to let loose a bit and let go of some of my own boundaries. I have experimented with some new materials and mark making. It will be interesting to see where this all goes. Happy Painting!

I stopped by to see the show at Sandler Hudson Gallery of Greely Myatt, an artist and professor based in Memphis. Check out his narrative installations.
This piece is is made from reclaimed wood, fluorescent lights, metal and steel.

This sculpture of Myatt's is made of burned out light bulbs, wire, and electricity

Artist Talk with Susan Loftin

Susan Loftin has created "Pink Seat" on the urban courtyard of the roof top balcony of Sandler Hudson Gallery. This is made of found wood and Susan wanted us to experience her pink seat as she is in this picture.
