New Works In Progress

“Open Source”, 54″ × 42″ × 2″, Acrylic and reflective pigment on canvas, 2012

On top of a number of projects on the horizon and new engagements, several larger-sized canvases are in the works. I’m very excited about the evolution of these new pieces. Stay tuned to hear about the next show, as well as ‘meet-ups with the artist.’ Plus, I will be spending quite a bit more time on my blog this coming year, posting exciting news and continued sneak peeks of my work, and more. In the mean time, please add me to your RSS newsfeed—it’s simple, it’s easy, and you don’t even have to think about it to keep on top of what’s happening.

Several New Directions

I’ve been working in several directions lately. This large detail from a recent piece represents one. My use of reflective and interference pigments is employed to address concerns of ‘worlds within worlds,’ occlusions, modifying purchase and perspectives. However, some of these images are making their way into new media, and with that shift, another sort of emphasis on these concerns is being made. I will post more on these exciting developments as they happen. (Please click the image below for a larger version.)

Thank you for taking the time to look at this work in progress.
