New work at Meyer East Gallery. I am very busy painting for my upcoming Santa Fe solo show. I will be posting works for the show as they become available leading up to the opening on August 30th.
Also today, I will be painting on Canyon Road at the gallery. I will do a sort-of demonstration in the early afternoon (I’m bringing in a work currently in progress and attempt to make more progress on it). This is to support the Canyon Road Passport to the Arts annual event and join in on the fun. So stop by and say hello if you’re in Santa Fe.
I am very pleased to announce my upcoming solo exhibit at the Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, Texas―“Private Revolution” opening Saturday, April 6 with a reception from 6 to 8 pm. The show runs through April 27th.
“Private Revolution” 30×24 inches, oil on linen SOLD
This new series of work is a celebration of the various private revolutions that my imagined personages launch: rebellions against indifferent beloveds, oppressive thoughts, and real or perceived injuries. There is a context for the ongoing themes of symbolic or literal wounds, mingled with the optimism of youth, lovers and dreamers. Stylistically I have been inspired by the works of Jacques Louis David and the neoclassical period following the French Revolution alongside formal portraiture in colonial Latin America. I am amused by the juxtaposition of traditional compositions with the ambiguous yet oddly humorous situations of injured or attacking cupids or children in military dress or exotic persons with their animal entourage.
