See New Work from Here to New York!

It's been awhile since I sent an update out. There has been a lot going on in the studio though! I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know what's up.

 I've been working on a new series of work that is exciting and scary at they same time. I recently participated in a critique session for The Studio Visit sharing some of the developing work. Fortunately, it had a great reception which eases my nerves about it a little bit. This is one of the prepatory sketches for the new work. There are big things in the future! Most definitely some oil paint.

As a little sideline to the new project I was playing around with some of my physical therapy direction sheets and created a new series of work titled "Single Fair" specifically for
at Sloan Fine Art in New York.
Exhibition: March 18 to 26, 2011
(there are only a few more days to see this amazing show!)

Single Fare 2 utilized New York Metro cards. The show organizers put up thousands of precious little gems of art on these throwaway cards, some by very well known artists. The press has had a frenzy over the show, including this video shot for Reuters by the organizers. It was a great challenge and fun to participate.
You can see all 12 of the pieces on my artist page.

I've also been working like mad in a little sketchbook as part of Transformer Gallery's upcoming Sketch Show. I've been filling the pages with thoughts, visual ideas, and doodles exploring the next steps in my work. Many of them explore the ideas of ability, incorporate the healing sequences of physical therapy that I've been going through over the last year and half, and challenge the usage my left and right hand further.

OPENING DAY: April 2; 1-7pm
