So, I’ve been a bit of a ghost lately.
I haven’t been slacking, I haven’t been avoiding drawing, much as the 100 Drawings seems to have been abandoned. On the contrary, I’ve been grinding and grinding, and grinding away some more on an upcoming solo show at Gallery 1988 in Venice, California.
The show is called Abandoned Menagerie, and the collection is an all-new body of paintings and drawings focused around my influences in popular culture, with special emphasis on my childhood influential imagery. I’ll have more info soon, but all the pertinent data for the show is on the postcard below. I’ve already released a few teaser images on my Tumblr page, but here’s a couple more.
I hope to see you there!
…save the proverbial date!
First up, I’ll have a painting in C.A.V.E. Gallery‘s upcoming two-year anniversary show: “Repeat Offenders” show. The show opens June 4th at 7PM and goes until 11PM. It’s also a benefits show, for “Haiti Healing Arts” with 20% of all proceeds to fund ICAF’s Art Therapy program for child victims of the earthquake that ravaged Haiti.

The piece was a fun one to do, working it in around my upcoming solo show in September at Subtext Gallery. It’s a continuation of the recent themes I’ve been playing with, all pieces acrylic on paper, mounted to wood and of course, smothered in resin. I’m more comfortable painting now than I’ve been in quite awhile, which is not to say that I certainly don’t have room for improvement. I’m always striving to get better, and getting into a painting zone has become more…challenging lately with the birth of Jackson. Anyway, mark your calendars, the show opens Friday, September 10th at Subtext Gallery in downtown San Diego. Look for my ad in the July issue of Hi-Fructose magazine. Enjoy!
…but not at the same time.
I will have a new painting on display at Art Basel in Miami this year, part of the Multiversal Group Show. The Multiversal group show begins on Thursday, December 3rd and runs until Sunday, December 6th. It will take place at The American Legion building, 6445 NE 7th Ave in the Miami Modern District. Admission is free.

Also, I was recently interviewed on Battlemouth.com. A fun little interview where I ramble candidly about art, content and what’s been going on recently. Check out the whole deal here.
More coming very soon, as I am trying to wrap up another exciting new painting for a show in January. December promises to be hectic, but there’s some fun stuff in the works for 2010. Stay tuned.
