ART PREP..Tuesday, April 16, 2013
The first step with all these nice white canvases I built is to get rid of all that white! All that white is daunting.. and being that I love splashing around color to begin a piece, I started there.. splashing watered down acrylics to create some bkground fields. Some studio snaps from the toning and beginning process on these canvases..
CANVASINGFriday, April 12, 2013
I'm back from California, fresh off the Tragic Heroes show and a little time off in LA.. I'm back in my studio now getting to work on a solo exhibition I have in Portland this summer at Hellion Gallery
. The show is called The House of Uncommons and will be entirely comprised of new paintings on canvas. Yes, that's right, paintings. I've stepped away from paper in the past, taking small forays into painting and what have you for group shows. This will be the first time I'm dedicating an entire solo show to painting and i'm a little nervous and very excited. Painting has always been daunting to me, so I decided to face my fears and just dive in.
First step.. make canvases...
TRAGIC HEROES OPENINGSunday, April 7, 2013
Tragic Heroes opened at As Issed last night. I spent most of the evening in conversation and, as usual, snapped very few photos of the actual goings on.. I got some photos of most of the work hung and it all looked great. I snapped a couple photos of the crowd filtering in before I got caught up pretty much for the rest of the night.. I hope to get a couple better photos from the evening from the resident photographer. For now enjoy these few..
