Buddy and art legend Jason Edmiston has teamed up with Nuvango and curated a dream team of talent for an upcoming show in Toronto entitled “In Our Veins.” Proudly featuring original works from: Jason Edmiston, Camilla d’Errico, Alex Pardee, Paul Jackson, Colin Christian, Sarah Joncas, Steven Daily, Scarecrowoven, AlexanderKirzhner, N.C. Winters Sam Wolfe Connelly, Bruce White, Justin Hopkins, Randy Ortiz, Isabel Samaras, Gary Pullin, Kevin Tong, Dave Correia, Brin Levinson and Rob Jones. Opening on  at the Nuvango Gallery in Toronto, Canada. The gallery experience will be augmented with installation decor that will highlight the influences for each artist. From Nuvango:

In Our Veins is a collaborative installation which highlights the pop-cutural influences of over 15 North American artists. Nuvango Gallery will be converted into an intimate and curious space, imagining the salon-style home of our most devoted collector. Moody décor, kitsch accents and nostalgic trinkets will transport visitors to the past while viewing contemporary representations of this cult aesthetic!

In addition to my custom hand sculpted framed original painting, prints of my piece for the show will also be available in extremely limited quantities. The show opens Feb 11th, 8-11pm, but for those that can’t make the opening, there’s even a pre-sale option, for those that can’t make it to the opening in Toronto. Full details on the whole show here.

Color.

Been really enjoying this series of work which hinges on the abstract and spontaneous nature of ink flow and other suspended pigments within water on a paper surface. There’s a real joy to only give the mildest direction to the flow of inks on the paper and adjust to the random delightful forms that result. Then it’s a matter of building up washes into thicker layers of acrylic paints but still leaving the wash elements, with all their hard edges of ink blooms to take on various errata textures. I can, and have, just spend hours working on these pieces.

For now, enjoy “Dissociative Qualities of Memory.”

Awwww, so creepy and cute…

Started this little sphynx cat painting a few months ago and broadcasted all progress live on Persicope. In case you weren’t aware, Persicope is a live broadcasting platform where one can take live video of whatever they’re doing and share it with the world, live. I’ve been trying to do more videos of my work, but as I don’t own a decent video camera, I’ve been using Persicope to record what I can with my phone. The catch: the videos aren’t of the highest quality and they are only available online for a day or so. Oh well, that’s what you get for a free service to share events live with your phone!

I wrapped up this little one the other day and have it up in the shop now. Enjoy “Little Pretty.”
