Osama Bin Laden's Funeral/Sneak peak update new work/Articles



Two articles my work has been mentioned in the last month. I'm currently at the Summer Painting Intensive Residency in Philadelphia right now. Getting ready for a show in two or three weeks. The work I have been doing since I've been here will be online at the end of this month.

I am Searching For Field Character

I have been in residence for the last week helping Sarah Cowles and Jim Voorhies out with the Beer Garden @massMOCA. It is one of the many public performance and relational aesthetic type art that will will be happening this summer with B.F.O.C and MassMOCA.  If you get a chance to get out to the Berkshires you should drop by. I'll be here for another week.

"And Through The Chaos The Gods Spoke" 6.5ft x 7.0ft Oil on Canvas
Two new paintings. "And Through The Chaos" is really different from the normal way I work. I was trying to go about things in a very different way to see how it would pan out. I don't know what I think about it. I'm really pleased with "Work Hard, Short Life". The title was inspired by this song by the band //Tense// i've been listening to alot:

A year ago around this time I went to Los Angeles for my first time with some friends. We decided to make a Spring trip to the city of angels every year around this time if our funds allowed. Fortunately, this year I had the funds and got myself out to southern California. Here are some pictures from the trip. If you know the name of any of the artists I did not name, please tell. Because I cannot remember them all. Cheers!
