Lately I’ve been working on new large pieces while simultaneously working on small three dimensional pieces. These small pieces inform the larger ones and are a surface that I can experiment on and try new techniques of paint application. This particular piece has gone through at least five, probably more, total transformations. It is difficult to photograph because the entire piece has a plastic like sheen to it since it’s covered in galkyd medium. The picture below is a detail shot.
Kirsten Hassenfeld is an artist that I found through the Jealous Curator blog. Her installations are stunning and completely made out of paper, they really transform spaces.
Artist Yellena James is a painter and graphic designer who creates imaginary eco-systems through the use of patterned organic forms. This particular piece is a print she made.
Jonas Gerard is a Moroccan born artist who is self-taught. These are acrylic paintings but he does 3d work as well as silk screen printing. Although he’s an abstract painter he creates a space that the viewer feels they can dive into. I admire the immense dimension and depth of his work. The forms that are created remind me of Dale Chihuly’s glasswork.

This is an oil painting I began recently. It is a simplified version of some of the geometric painting that I’ve been doing lately. This particular painting is a deconstruction of a bridge that my grandfather designed.
Found this new artist/designer today named Mika Barr. Their work consists of foldable fabric, think pillows, etc. It’s kindof amazing. For more images and information visit the website: http://mikabarr.com/pages/page_1.aspx?line=Geo
My latest painting titled Casa Del Lago was recently on display in the Meyers Gallery at the University of Cincinnati. I’ll be deinstalling it at the beginning of this week.
