Lot’s of new stuff happening. unnamed

I will be in a group show, Wherefore Art? at the West New York Gallery in Jersey City:

Village West Gallery
331 Newark Avenue
Jersey City, NJ 07302

The show runs from February 25-May 5, 2019. There are currently two early receptions planned for the show: JC Fridays reception: Friday, March 1, 2019 – 5-9pm. Opening reception – Thursday, March 7, 2019 – 6-9pm.

Here is an interesting article I read about artist Arthur J. Williams. Talk about entering through the gift shop, so to speak. If you are a painter, the Dana Schutz show over at Petzel Gallery in Chelsea is worth seeing.

That’s it for now. Still grappling with the world situation, but don’t have the time to complain, which is I suppose a good thing. Anyway, stay tuned! Lot’s coming down the pike….

For The Love Of It All…

New group show happening in February:unnamed

As you know I’ve been a bit lax about blogging. Come the end of the residency, I will hopefully get back on track. Not that I don’t have much to say, just have to budget my time. Since school is starting, I’ve been inundated with revisiting and rewriting syllabi which as you know, can be very time consuming.

On an up note, the residency (ESKFF at MANA Contemporary) is going great. I’m producing a new series titled: Commit to Memory: The Precipice of Extinction. I committed to producing 8-10 paintings on paper that embrace the topic of extinction (hence the title.) My plan after the residency will be to create an animation of the work that will illustrate the poetry of Nicelle Davis. That’s the plan and hopefully once it’s done, I will be entering the animation into the festival circuit. Sounds a bit ambitious but this topic is extremely important. Nicelle and I have metaphorically linked this topic to the disappearance of our culture and political climate. Powerful indeed but we as artists have the responsibility to record our times and tell the story.

Lullaby of Karpland the process book is now available.

Stay tuned more to come…..

The next few months I will be creating a  body of work that focuses on extinction. I’ll be turning it into a video poem (animation) after the residency is over. I’ve already created a few pieces on the topic. New show in May so stay tuned….

Opening Friday:

AFFORDABLE ART!!!

Art House, 262 17th Street, Jersey City

November 16, 6:30 PM.

107 Bowers will be having their AFFORDABLE 25 Days of Holiday Art Market show soon.

I’ll be back at the ESKFF Residency, MANA Contemporary this coming January to the end of March. I’ll be hard at work with this huge project titled: Commit to Memory; The Precipice of Extinction.

The project is starting to grow. So far the venues are as follows: a 2 person show with Andrea McKenna coming up in May at The Eonta Gallery here in Jersey City. I’ll keep you posted as we get closer. As it stands now we will be showing some of my animations as well. Very cool. The project will also involve the poetry of Nicelle Davis. Animation, exhibition and Catalog to follow.

The title (or working title) Commit to Memory; The Precipice of Extinction is a common phrase. I came across the term (commit to memory) in a video tutorial. I find it fitting since memory is all we will have left once extinction becomes more apparent.

 

In the meantime stay tuned….
