I was so happy to be able to be a part of this wonderful group exhibition at Roman Susan Annex. It was an innovative exhibition, unlike any I had seen (around my area) before. Here’s to more challenging exhibitions and exhibition spaces that are breaking new grounds!
Been a busy time around the studio, working intently on a new series of works on paper. I’m hitting heavy with my fascination for line and the interconnections between exactness and bold color. This is the first time I am delving into the world of gouache paint and i’m enjoying it so far! It’s taken me a long time to find a paint that I actually like working with, I believe this is it.
Looking forward to the new year!
This is the final run for this exhibition and it’s going to go out with a bang! I’m really looking forward displaying my small installation.
To celebrate the final exhibition, curator Sergio Gomez has personally invited a selection of artists who have exhibited within the last ten years. This exhibition titled “Curator’s Choice” celebrates one decade of contemporary self-portraiture. It opens on July 18th in the spacious second floor gallery of the Zhou B Art Center.
I couldn’t be more happy to be a featured artists in the #11 Nude issue of iARTistas. So many talented artists in this world, I am ecstatic to be showing my work with some of the greats!
Spring is one of my favorite seasons and I’m always happy to see the new life beginning to show; especially after the record breaking snows of this Chicago winter.
I find that in this mix of new beginnings, so am I starting on a new beginning of my own; one that delves into the quite solitude of my surroundings and the deepest concentration of my current art studies. This year (although it’s just begun) has marked the shift into a new evolution of thought and creation; following a more natural path of beginning, middle and end. This mantra is as consuming as it is freeing, but a necessary component for a healthy and strengthened growth.
