SF :: NYC :: VAN

This post is about the debut of my NYC Collection into the real world (house shows don't count), my SF trip, and recent studio projects. 

I had some fun in San Francisco, it is by far the most colorful city I have ever been to. Also, this is the closest I will ever be to exhibiting in the FFDG. It will have to do.

Select works from NYC Collection, 2011
There's something about framing an artwork that makes it look so legit. I caught an amazing sale so I stocked up on exhibition frames. You can see these beauties at the Water Shed Arts Cafe in Langley for the month of May. 

I am returning to mylar, but on a much bigger scale. In an attempt to create a wider point of contact for the audience, these personal family portraits are intentionally blurred and concealed. The material to be under and overlaid in the pieces are vintage wall papers and fabric patterns, hearkening back to a hazier, less defined time of life.
