Going, Going, Gone!

Know Your Ghost has found its forever home. Later this week I will be sending it out to South Coast Massachusetts. I am excited that it will end up in New England where it was created.

Masters of Art Ed

Looks like I'm headed to New Bedford for one more exhibition. My work will be in the 2015 MAE Exhibition this weekend! Come see the artwork of this sensational group of art teachers.

Altars and Offerings

I am excited to make my return to the Mohonk Barn Museum. All of March and April you can see my new work in Altars & Offerings.

Altars & Offerings is a mix of works centering around the ideas of memory and divination.  I am curious about the way our memories unravel behind us as we move through time and I am interested by the ways in which we try to peer into the uncertainty of the future.  As someone who is not particularly superstitious, the notion of omens and portents are intriguing to me.

This body of work started in early 2013 when I made myself a Ouija Board.  This was a project that I had floating through my head for a number of years and that spring the timing seemed right.  I exhibited the board along with some of my other paintings in a show called Negative Space at the UGLY Gallery (New Bedford, MA).  I could not have expected the reaction that the Ouija Board brought about.  People seemed to have a morbid fascination with it and I find now that people have a similar reaction to most tools for divination. Whether through tarot cards, rune stones or palmistry, we love to believe we can gain insight to our future.  Since that exhibition I have continued to explore the ides of foretelling and forgetting in a variety of media.

The Devil Went Down to Georgia

Check out my submission to the Guts N' Glory Ink's holiday artist swap Folklore. It's my take on  the American fable The Devil Went Down to Georgia. If you've never heard the song follow this link.

I thought it would be a fun experiment to post an in progress collage of the piece while I was working on. If you like these in progress photos leave a comment and let me know so I can do it again.

Halls of Our Fathers

    What a spectacular show from Karrie Arthurs! Halls of Our Fathers was a killer collection of her stunning pen and ink work. We were also super fortunate to have Karrie with us for a short visit on opening night. Just as you might imaging, it was a pleasure to chat with such a talented, hard working and down-to-earth artist. As if that wasn't enough !?!? We are exited to report that one of Karrie's pieces sold and will not be heading back to the Great White North With the rest of her work. What a bonus to a great exhibition. Thanks again to Karrie Authers and if you are not following her yet on Instagram, fix that: @thepaperweight
