Hello again art lovers.

Summer is here and to celebrate, I have decided to have a “Summer Sale” on art works. Works in the “Summer Sale Facebook album will be temporarily  discounted From Wednesday July 13, 2016 until midnight on Wednesday, July 20th, 2016.

Next up, I have two new “Siren” pastel studies completed.  I have quit a few more left undone, but I think they’ll have to wait a while.  That being said, I have really enjoyed working with the medium and imagery.

And finally, by popular demand, I have decided to offer high-quality. limited edition prints of the “Venus#1” watercolor study.  The edition size extremely limited at only 15 prints mid-sized made available.

 I have a feeling these editions will go quickly, so please contact me via ckirkart.com for inquiries.

New Figure study “Siren” + Old Visceral Charcoal Drawings + Print Orders + Sold Archetype

Hello again art lovers,

I hope all is well in your worlds.

I’m well.  I sold a few works, landed a nice commission, and began some new pastel studies on builder’s paper which I haven’t quite finished yet.  Among the pieces recently sold was a favorite of mine.  It was an early 2013 addition to the Apoko-Lips series titled “The Occupation” and in retrospect, it showed that the Trickster archetype that Carl Jung wrote about was in full swing.   Before boxing the piece up for shipping, I took the opportunity to snap a higher quality photo which you can see below.

I also have some new print inquiries.  I figured I’ll take this opportunity to make limited editions available once again for a limited time.  I will be taking new print orders until Wednesday May 4th, 2016.  You can see pieces available in print form by clicking here.  If you’d like to order a limited edition print, please email me from the “Contact” page of my website.

In other news, I recently went through my art storage and came across a few different collections of studies from 2010.  These studies were created with charcoal, and chalk on 18 x 24″ paper.  They are very visceral and moody.  I shot high quality images of the work and have listed them on the “Shop” page of my website.  I attached one of the pieces below, but if you liked to see the other three, please visit my shop.  If you would like to see high quality or detail photos of the 2010 studies, please contact me from my website.

I’ll end by mentioning that I have completed my 4th pastel study on builder’s paper.  I have no idea exactly what I will do with the images.  Maybe I’ll use them for reference on future oil paintings.  Right now, I’m just enjoying the process of creating the figure studies.  Its been a long time since I’m worked on toned paper and I have to admit, I really love the contrast between the monochromatic figures and the warm brown of the paper.  Below is the recently finished pastel study “Siren #1”.

I’m just dropping in for a quick post.  Tonight, a large selection of my work will be exhibited at Seven Minus Seven in a grand reopening event.  The gallery is located in ST. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  My work (In the showing) has already sold out, but don’t fret.  The gallery will be taking orders.

That being said, if you find yourself in ST. Thomas tonight, drop by and enjoy the show.  Also, I’d like to extend my best wishes and a thank you to the gallery, the patrons, and the other artists in the show.  I will be a wonderful night.

Command – Shift (~) HAD-STEP-CRBL

Hello again art lovers,

1 hope all is well.

1 am.  1 finally finished up the long process of completing a new piece.  Honestly, I think finding a way to personify my ideas took up the most time.  The art work is the 19th addition to the Apoko-Lips collection.  1 was able to utilize a few new techniques and had quite a bit of fun designing and applying the make up prior to the photography process.  The mixed media work is titled Building Gods – HAD-STEP-CRBL and is the first in what will be a new sub category to Apoko-Lips.

Tossing Litter From The Synchronicity Highway

Hello again art lovers!

I hope you’ve all had a great week.

I did.  I took a break from restful days and spent a couple of them hammering out an eclectic mixture of overdue tasks.  The new-found access to different aspects of my personality (A sort of controlled schizophrenia) seems to have major benefits.  Selecting the proper program with the proper function for the proper situation has reduced stress, increased productivity/fun, and helped communication exchanges become more transparent and effective…at least for the time being.

Anyway, I finished up the art work and scans for “The Tale Of Moby Dickhead: A Heart Warming Story Of Life Finding A Way Despite Evolution”.  Originally, I intended for my 5 year-old son to do the art work but he refused to cooperate.  Go figure.  I attempted to have the drawings viewable in 3D, but it didn’t work out quite the way I hoped.  Despite the art not going exactly to plan, I do enjoy reading the story quite a bit…especially when orating as the acclaimed English actor/narrator John Hurt.  Oh, that’s right!  I forgot to mention that as long as the readers imagination is healthy, the story is interactive!

“The Tale Of Moby Dickhead” will be available for your reading pleasure next wednesday, June 24, 2015.

Also this week, A long time collector of my work named Lisa has commissioned me to paint over the faces of a commission she commissioned from me years ago.  She’s become enamored with painting over parts of paintings so I’ll oblige her and paint.  More news on this later, but for now, I’ll mention that I spent considerable minutes tweaking the information on the information page of my website.  Information is now as accurate as possible in current space – time.  If you love to eat information and desire more click here.

In other news, I packed up the pieces of a major sale!  That’s right, a 30 x 40″ canvas and a limited edition Deluxe Set  of Apoko – Lips 2014 prints will shortly be in route to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.

If that wasn’t good enough, the mass of art was purchased and will be exhibited by Clay, a long-time friend and collector of my work who has returned to the island to reopen the Seven Minus Seven Gallery!

I’ll post more news about exhibit dates as soon as I have them.

I’m thrilled.  In my experience, it’s pretty rare nowadays for the gallery to purchase an artist’s work prior to exhibiting it.  Clay dances to the beat of a different drum in a lot of ways though.  That being said, the limited edition Apoko – Lips Deluxe Set is a collection of 13 high quality prints and was meant to come in a customized container of some kind.  Because of the fast approaching exhibit, the collector needed the art before I could get the specs for the container worked out.  I originally envisioned a decommissioned bazooka missile painted pink to contain the set of prints.  I’m not sure if this is doable though.  I’ll find out and let you know.

Some People Are Just Assholes But GRID Loves You

Hello again art lovers,

I hope the week has been good to you thus far.

assholes_one_scan-2

I’m great.  I just finished up a new triptych that I’ve been working on for a while.  The idea originated back toward the end of 2013 when I did three quick sketchbook watercolors while in Los Angeles.  The concept was much simpler at the time, but over the last several months, some things were stripped away while other brain candy was added.  The new version is not as raw as the original and much more design oriented.  It’s also missing a devil penis but I doubt anyone will fault me for that.

Family Portraits, Vagina Commissions, & Gozer Limited

Hello again dear readers,

I hope you’ve all had an excellent week.

I have been absolutely swamped as you may remember me mentioning in the last blog entry “There & Back Again By Dildo Braggins”.  Since then, I’ve finished up a commissioned family portrait of a couple of standup comedians and the poor women who puts up with them on a daily basis.  This presumably saintly women is named Kenna and it was her birthday last week.  Soon after her husband Steve picked it up the canvas from my studio, he sent me a photo of her holding the canvas and mentioned that it would be taking up prime real estate in their bedroom.

Happy Birthday Kenna

After the family portrait was finished, I immediately started on the next commission in line.  It’s an interesting one where I am charged with the task of making a composition from five separate vaginas.  This is all at the buyer’s request, of course. Some of you may want to stay tuned for it.

I’m calling it “V5” for now.

In other news, we shipped out a box full of original art and a couple of the “Gozer” limited edition prints to the United Kingdom earlier today.  Actually, there’s not many of the “Gozer” prints left, so if you’d like to grab your very own “Gozer” before they’re gone forever, feel free to email me at info@ckirkart.com
