Universe: the Art of Existence at Modern Eden Gallery

UNIVERSE-The-Art-of-Existence

I am so pleased to share that this month one of my paintings is hanging in the group show, Universe: the Art of Existence, curated by Michael Cuffe of Warholian.

My painting, “We shall need each other” is 12″x12″ acrylic and mixed media on a wood panel.

I’m excited and honored to have my work up at such a lovely gallery as Modern Eden, alongside so many amazing artists as this show provides. Michael’s vision was to give all 60+ artists the theme of the cosmos and quickly turnaround a new piece for the show which has been a great success.

The opening for the show was in April and it was amazing! Seeing the work up close and in person is well worth the visit as was meeting so many great people. There is a great write up with lots of terrific photos all by Michael Cuffe of the opening on the Warholian site.

There are still a few days left to view the show, it is up until this weekend, May 3rd with a closing reception this Friday May 2, 2014 6-9 pm. If you’re in the Bay area please get out there and see some awesome artwork!

Imaginary friends

One of the series I am working on in my studio is imaginary friends. There are lots of sketches but not many finished pieces just yet but today I did complete another one. It’s called finger trap and yet again, another creature was abandoned with no one to play with…

No fingers and no friend who conjured him….wonder what this little bun will do to occupy his time. Maybe if enough imaginary friends get together they can have a party….or something. We’ll see.

You might remember this other little friend:

abandoned imaginary friend I

 

This little is Abandoned Imaginary Friend I and this piece was part of the Small Works Show at the 440 Gallery in Brooklyn, NY in December and January. I also created limited edition prints for the Holland Project’s Holland Editions.

I’ve been having some fun with these little beans….you’ll be seeing many more in the future. I’m excited to see how their adventures will unfold.
