Seahorses!

Working on a big seahorse themed piece for an exciting project, so there have been many seahorse studies lately. Plus, the more I read about them, the more fascinating they are. A quick heads up that I will be exhibiting at Wondercon in downtown Los Angeles in a few weeks with a couple very special brand new…items available for purchase. Secrets, secrets! I’ll have more Wondercon info soon, but for now, know that I’ll be on the corner, at booth #341, along with the good guys at Yesterdays pins.

For now, enjoy “Abyssal.”

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.”

New group show!

Supersonic5

I’m extremely honored to be a participant in the fifth annual Supersonic Invitational at Spoke Art. The show is the brainchild of Zach Tutor and his incredible art site Supersonic Electronic. I have the pleasure of callign Zach a friend, after spending some time with him during last year’s KAABOO art and music festival. Zach has an excellent writeup about the KAABOO event here. The group exhibition features over 70 of the world’s leading New Contemporary artists. You can see the full line up and get more info about the show here.
