Looking forward to exhibiting at the SCOPE Pavilion in Miami Beach December 4 – 9, 2018 during exciting Art Basel Week. I’ll be one of five artists with JanKossen Projects of Basel, New York, and Venice. If you’re in the area stop by Booth H35 and check out the show. I’d love to see you.
From the opening night party of the LA Invitational at George Billis Gallery. The wonderful John Wisor featured prominently in a collaborative video between myself and artist/videographer/photographer Anthony Dortch (instagram@dortchdesigns). Soon to be posted here. The video highlighted another painting in the Corrected Vision series, and luckily enough John turned out to be the perfect model to represent the living subject of the series. Mirabile dictu!
If you’re in Los Angeles, drop by George Billis Gallery in the Culver City Arts District to see the show, up through August 25.
Excited to have Corrected Vision 5, far right, selected for the LA Invitational at George Billis Gallery LA. A great art city, Los Angeles celebrates contemporary art with a ton of top notch galleries and first rate museums. Kudos to gallery director Tressa Williams for organizing and curating this super show.
Just shipped this handsome guy to George Billis Gallery in the Culver City art district of Los Angeles for the LA Invitational. I’m honored to be in this exhibit, curated by Tressa Wiliams, Gallery Director. If you’re in the area, stop by and see the show.
By the way, George Billis Gallery is also in New York City, located in the heart of the Chelsea art district.

Many, many thanks to juror Annette Polan for selecting this cute painting for the highly competitive regional exhibition on Capitol Hill and conferring it Third Place. A renowned nationally-feted portrait artist, Annette knows her figures. She painted the official portrait of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Thanks also to Exhibitions Director Nicky Cymrot and her staff for making this possible.
The exhibit closes September 23, so there’s plenty of time to drop by and catch the show:

Karl, 30″x24″ acrylic on canvas, is one of 17 artworks that form Flip-Side, my upcoming solo exhibit at Hill Center Gallery on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Many thanks to Gallery Director Nicky Cymrot for the opportunity.
These abstracted figure paintings continue a theme I’ve been developing over the past several years – that is, depicting what is felt rather than what is seen. Featuring ordinary people in states of vulnerability, confusion or courage, the paintings focus on moods as interpreted by facial and body language, vibrant color and bold brushwork. There exists a public side that we present to the world, and a private flip-side that reflects doubt and turmoil. Loss of control frequently pervades, as though the subject has been taken outside his or her comfort zone. Sounds like a modern, topical theme for today’s life, doesn’t it?
On Exhibit May 3 – June 23, 2018
