new artworks.

i am starting to prep for a show in june with alex gruttadaro at joe bean coffee on university ave.
here is the first batch of paintings that i have completed for that show.
i am enjoying working the combined found surfaces, trying to find a balance where it looks as though the works have been excavated from within a wall, found under peeling wallpaper, or put together from objects left behind from the middle of the 20th century.
these works mark a new direction for me as i veer away from straight portraiture into something more painterly and less specifically about the subject. i have been inspired specifically by the work of mid-century painters richard diebenkorn, jasper johns and robert rauschenberg, along with contemporary artists vhils and best ever.

"the glow"
"laying back"
"blue skies"
