CAJA Group Show @ 423West Gallery

16 Jul

Hello friends! I’m back to let you know of a new exhibition I’m proud to be a part of. First, a little back story….

Over the past couple of years while showing in the Sea No Evil Art Show I’ve had the opportunity to show along side and meet some incredibly talented and well known artists. I am very thankful for that. Recently I was asked if I wanted to be a part of an upcoming group show to be curated by an artist colleague I have exhibited with at SNE, Christopher Umana. Of course I said yes and was honored to have been sought out for this new show, CAJA to take place 7-27-2013 at 423West Gallery in Los Angeles. Though I have yet to meet Christopher in person his work stands out to me as being very original and inspiring. This show has also given me the chance to be able to occupy wall space with one of my long time friends, fellow artist and, someone who has continued to amaze and inspire me, Jophen Stein.

The piece I have created for this show has proven to be quite a challenge for me which I have no problem admitting. This is due to the fact that my artwork is primarily 2D in it’s presentation-I paint on wood, a flat surface. This has driven me to take my art and place it in a 3D type of situation. So, “Caja” means box in Spanish and for the concept of this piece I wanted to give the impression of seemingly peering out from some sort of box: to put the viewer inside the box looking out. This could be a window, a door or turning and looking back through some grand entrance. I chose a combination of these but mainly focused on the latter. Hopefully you, my friends, family and, artists colleagues can make the opening and share with me your experience of gazing upon my work and out into the universe.

As always, all my best and I hope to see you there!

SEA NO EVIL 2012

19 Jun

I am pleased to officially announce that I will once again be participating in this year’s annual Sea No Evil Art Show, taking place Saturday June 30th at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium. Last year’s event was such an amazing success for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and was also huge achievement for myself; the two original pieces of artwork I donated to SNE 2011 both sold. This year I will be donating one new piece that is a part of my most recent body of work.

It is truly an honor  to be a part of such a great cause. I am so happy and grateful to be donating to this wonderful show again and to be able to show alongside some really great artists and friends. Please come out and show your support while checking out and, hopefully buying, some great art. All art will be auctioned off with the proceeds going towards keeping our oceans and all that dwells therein safe. See you there!
