I haven't been able to update my blog for sometime because I had coding issues, but finally had some time to call technical support and straighten everything out I am finally able to post again! Anyway, thank you so much to all the people who came to my Art talk on Wednesday, it was really wonderful to see you there. In case you haven't received a personal invitation and are in the New York area, I will be holding an open studio event this weekend as part of Long Island City open studio weekend. Come visit me and hundreds of other artists! My studio will be open Saturday and Sunday from 12:00pm - 6:00pm and is located at 43-01 22nd street, studio 305, Long Island City, NY 11101
If you are in California, you can see my work in "Breach of Privacy" a group exhibition, at the Carmichael Gallery, 5795 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA, opening this Saturday at 6pm. Two of my paintings will be on display. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the opening but it should be a really good show. Here is an excerpt from the press release:
"Life is filled with glimpses of private moments and the artists in Breach of Privacy capture these experiences of curiosity, attraction and idleness by employing various forms of visual realism to depict a fleeting instance in their subjects’ lives and create a non-linear narrative in which the viewer is encouraged to be complicit. In their fluctuation between delicacy and darkness, the works of art both reference the poignant beauty implicit in the nature of voyeurism and brazenly confront the societal mores that condemn the shameful exhilaration such an act can provoke in the human being’s mind and body."
