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
Just completed and available in the studio. Sized 36×36 inches, Raul appears enigmatic with eyes that have much to say if only we could interpret them. This kind of painting thrills me with its ambiguity and arresting quality. It makes one think. It’s not just pretty wallpaper.
This enigmatic piece has been accepted into the national juried exhibition of the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in California. The exhibition, “Content Matters,” features “consequential work that tells stories and captures the attention of visitors.”
My painting is the first in my “Corrected Vision” series which addresses feeling and seeing and the moment when one’s ideas have finally clarified. Sometimes we are blinded by misperception, wishful thinking and faulty logic. This series of paintings reflects the moment of clarity when truth is revealed. We have all experienced periods of being mislead or of assuming the best, and I think everyone can empathize with the emotion of finally recognizing the stark truth.
The exhibition’s curator and judge is well-known San Francisco gallerist Jack Fischer. Thanks to Marin MOCA for the opportunity! If you’re in the area, stop by and check out the show. This artwork is for sale.

Corrected Vision 7, 24×24 inches acrylic on canvas, above, has been selected for the collection of Washington, DC via a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. I’m honored for this delightful piece to have been chosen from among the many applicants.
A big “Thank you” to Zoma Wallace, DC Art Bank Coordinator, and Lauren Dugas Glover, Public Art Manager, both with the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Nigel made its way to SCOPE Miami Beach 2018 with me and caused quite a stir at the JanKossen Projects booth. Filled with emotion, the painting features rich, thick, and creamy paint in large gestural sweeps. Drips, drops and smudges all add to a chaotic mix, much like life itself. Thanks to Jasmin Kossenjans and her terrific staff for taking good care of me and mine.
