This is my new blog: case you have come here looking for my work and find this skeleton of a website. Forgot to link to it back in the day when I actually switched, but better late than never.

Some New-ish Stuff

Here's a new painting that I finished over the summer that I'm pretty proud of.

As It Was In the Hearts of Men, So Shall It Be, 2010. Mixed Media on Board

The strange business at the top of this piece is a lace tablecloth that I stretched/tore/generally ravaged and distressed to make cool three-dimensional texture. It was really successful and is something that I plan on employing and delving deeper into in the future. It also presents a whole new world of headaches on the reproduction end of things. It was excruciatingly difficult to try to do this piece justice in picture form, as the lighting completely changes the look of the entire piece when it moves around, and it is hard to get a sense of that when you are presented with one, static photograph on which to base your impression. I'll let these other experiments tell the story:

Also, I will be another show at the Soo Rye Gallery that runs over the holidays, which is nice. It's called 'Precious', and is centered around small works of art, so I submitted a couple of my strange collage family people. Everyone that I have shown them to in the past has really liked them, so I hope that they are well-received. Then again, 'everyone' in this case is my friends, and my friend's tastes are, in a word, 'unique'.

On a different note, I think that I'm going to start posting general non-artish things that interest me up here occasionally too, so there will be less art-pressure and I actually start stopping by more frequently. Item the first:

If you have the time/means of transportation, you should scoot over to Rye, NH this Friday for what promises to be a pretty swell opening at the Soo Rye Art Gallery. The show is called 'Taking Flight'. I am showing four pieces in it, and from what I have seen of the other artists being featured, there is going to be some pretty cool stuff. Things start up at six and go till eight, hope to see you there, whoever you are!

I leave you with this for now:

Lemme tell you

Working full-time makes it so hard to keep this kind of business up to date. All of the time that I've had off lately I've either already had plans or errands, or I'm simply too worn out to do anything other than sit around and vegetate. At the very least, I've completely finished three new pieces that will be part of a group show at the Soo Rye gallery in New Hampshire next month. I'm pleased with all of them, but one is waaay better than the others. In fact, it might be one of my favorite pieces that I've made in at least the last two or three years... I will post them here in a couple of days when I actually feel up to fiddling around and formatting them in Photoshop.

Some New Stuff

Here are a couple of new pieces that I just cranked out this week in an attempt to get back into things:

M042010.29.16 (Box), 2010. Acrylic, transfer and collaged street debris on board

M14683.20.7460 (Jack), 2010. Acrylic, transfer and collaged street debris on board

These pieces kind of represent a new direction that I'm beginning to pursue with my artmaking. I get a great enjoyment out of collaging just for the sake of collaging, so I have begun to design these abstract compositions made almost entirely out of found materials, bringing order and meaning to what used to just be garbage. There is a quality to all of these little scraps that I find around that makes it just really fascinating to sit down and play with them until something happens to fit together just right and suddenly make sense.

It's official: I'm no longer an art student, I'm just an artist.


I think I'm gonna go start planning a big painting or something.
