I'm thrilled that my exhibition "Islands in the Stream" is opening this week at Sue Greenwood Fine Art in Laguna Beach, CA.
My work comes from thoughts about people and places; about permanence and impermanence; about notions of home and belonging. These thoughts are depicted in images that combine simple representations, layered abstractions, and plain-spoken materials.
I’m always fascinated by people’s relationship with the land and time - how the landscape becomes a record of people’s movements and stories. Especially the way that the things we regard as solid and permanent are actually temporary, in flux, and part of a continuum much larger than ourselves.
Much of my recent work ponders life's transitions, and features images of boats, houses, and travelers, reflecting on life’s journeys, arrivals, and moorings.
The show features fifteen paintings, mostly made in the last two years, and the gallery is currently open for socially responsible viewing. Also showing concurrently - work by the always fascinating Arizona artist John Randall Nelson.
I'm delighted and honored to have my painting, A New Perspective, on show at the 2021 Crocker Kingsley exhibition.
The Crocker-Kingsley Exhibition was first juried in 1940, and over the past 80 years, this prestigious show has included many premier names in American and California art, including Robert Arneson, Elmer Bischoff, David Gilhooly, Gregory Kondos, Mel Ramos, Ruth Rippon, and Wayne Thiebaud. In the past, this competition has featured solely California artists. However, starting this year the exhibition was open to submissions from all artists nationally. Works selected by this year’s juror, Carrie Lederer, is on display in all four galleries at Blue Line Arts in Roseville, CA.
Exhibition dates: January 8th to February 20th.
Virtual reception: Saturday, January 16th at 3pm.
