Art Essex Gallery is currently featuring these two paintings above, James and Naranja, both 40×30 inches acrylic on canvas completed in 2021. Check out the gallery’s Invitational Exhibition available online through May 15 at http://www.artessex.com.
Juried by New York City art critic and art writer David Masello, the exhibition focuses on the unpredictable, the best and most exciting feature of a work of art. “Unpredictable” is a great word – the opposite of expected and boring. Can’t begin to tell you how that word has informed my art practice over the past years. I hope you enjoy these two vibrant and exciting pieces above from this exhibition. We all need to look at the world differently as life constantly evolves and changes. I think these two lively pieces reflect the unexpected from me.
This is the first painting of 2021 completed in the studio. The January chill in the air mandates bundlng up in painted layers of silk, flannel, wool, and down quilting. Perhaps that explains the choice of white and icy blue in Sara, above. The rust-red helps to impart a warmer feel to this free-wheeling painting. I think we should all be celebrating the move into a new year promising hope and change. Fingers crossed!
Very excited to be featured in this article by Robert F. James in the Public Broadcasting Service online journal, Next Avenue. And, thanks to Danielle Glosser, Principal of Client Raiser, for putting us together.
I’m so honored to have my enigmatic painting on the cover of the September 2020 issue of American Psychologist Journal. Now in the custody of one of my collectors, this painting has always been one of my favorites. I like the color, the movement, and the ambiguity. I feel yellow always conveys hopeful and positive emotions
The title comes from a poem by Theodore Roethke, a Pacific Northwest poet much beloved during my undergraduate years. Both poem and painting exude a sense of loss as well as moving on into the future. The image imagines a confidence and purpose as the figure continues on the journey. More on this in a future post.
This is a small sample of my solo Divergent Impulses at Calloway Fine Art & Consultingin Washington, DC, available online through June 5. All new and exciting figurative work out of my imagination. Most of the 15 paintings featured in the show are 36×48 canvases. I think they make any room in the home or office more interesting.
In May 2020 Calloway Fine Art & Consulting features my newest artworks in an exciting solo virtual exhibition @callowayart.com. While the virtual nature of this show is the result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, happily these new paintings on canvas can all be viewed online at your leisure and from the safety of your home.
Titled Divergent Impulses, the canvases in this all-figurative exhibit tell multiple stories, unique to the imaginary individual portrayed. With an array of color, body language and texture, the artworks blur the real with the imagined by focusing on emotions and impulses of the moment.
More details to follow. In the interim, enjoy the above image Scott, 48×36 acrylic painting on canvas.
It’s important to see artwork in a room to envision how it might look to live with every day. I prefer art that commands attention, catches at a glance, and doesn’t blend into the wallpaper. This sitting room is made vibrant and relevant with interesting, dynamic paintings filled with color and attitude. It looks young and filled with potential. Check out my artwork available at Calloway Fine Art & Consulting in Washington, DC’s prestigious Georgetown area.
I like the way this painting tackles the feeling of a man perfectly adapted to his surroundings, fully at ease and intent on his business, dealing with whatever needs to be accomplished despite or because of the weather. It exemplifies the spirit of individuals who are confident and capable — self-actualized. Qualities I greatly admire.
I’m honored to be representing Calloway Fine Arts & Consulting with this painting and one other (see the previous post) at the Current Art Fair in Richmond, VA. The fair runs from October 24-27 — a perfect drive during Fall. These exciting contemporary artworks would look terrific in any space. For more information: http://www.currentartfair.com
