If you're in Miami, please Join Me Friday Night May 11th, 6-9

Incomplete Screen Capture, Dorsch Gallery Website

I'm excited for this show, to see Miami and reconnect with people there and to see my new paintings in the space. I'm also looking forward to exhibiting with Felecia Chizuko Carlisle and Michelle Weinberg. More and more the paintings feel like drawing, if one allows pours or flat, shaded areas to function as mark. There are drawings as well, which imagery repeats sometimes in the paintings. If you're in Miami, please come by and check it out.

Preparing for a show is a sentimental process-I've taken to holding a canvas or two back as a continuation of the process and thinking that informs this group of work. It synthesizes many ideas in the last few years: pinstriped mountains, pattern, pours and Indian as well as Chinese brush techniques. At first I thought about landscapes like above, relatively straightforward pathways through space, but I got excited about constructing space from projected marks, and soon enough there were trees, mountains, a moon, more pattern.
