Gallery Exhibit Tonight (10/28/15) At Seven Minus Seven

Hello again art lovers,

I hope you are well.

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.

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.

Less Than Zero: Group Exhibit + Indiesart.com

Hello all,

I just wanted to do a quick press announcing the next exhibit that I will be participating in.  The show will be held at Seven Minus Seven in St Thomas US Virgin Islands and will also feature work from Jaybo Monk, Indigo, George Morton Clark, Joseph Loughborough, Ben Slow and more.  I am very pleased to be a part of this exhibit and considering the talent that’s on board for this one, I would recommend anyone who’s going to be in St Thomas to attend.

 

In other news, I recently ran across a website called Indiesart.com and discovered that they did a feature on a selection of my 2011 collection.  Check out my feature and while you’re there, explore.  They have some of the hottest talent around gathered together on their site.

Two New Pieces on Builder’s Paper + Seven Minus Seven

Besides completing the two LARGE scale works on Builder’s Paper shown above, I have been hanging out with my pal Clay Jones while he’s been in town.  Clay is a founding member of Seven Minus Seven, a non profit art collective in St Thomas, which is located in the US Virgin Islands.  I sent some works on paper with Clay a few months ago, and judging from the result of the show…..St Thomas islanders are ready for for urban contemporary art!

All week Clay and I have been taking care of business.  Thanks to Clay, I have plenty of canvas and bristol to last at least six months.  We’ve also shot high resolution photos of my 2011 works on canvas with his Cannon Ultrasonic.  The camera captured all the thick layered detail of the new paintings.  It was the first time I had used a camera of that caliber, so when I saw the huge picture files in photoshop, I flipped!

Clay selected a slew of new works on paper and bristol vellum to take back to the island.  We also boxed up a few of my 2011 works on canvas and had them shipped to St Thomas yesterday for an upcoming viewing.

If that wasn’t enough, Clay and I have  also been working out plans for a summer exhibit which will bring the works of some of my favorite contemporary artist from Canada, England, France, and Berlin to Seven Minus Seven.  More details to come.

Well, until next time,
