2018 has been an outstanding year for me. My artwork was displayed at the Decumanus Gallery in Croatia, Provincetown Art Museum, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Patchogue Arts Council Gallery, East End Arts, Main Street Petite Gallery, and the Memorial Gallery at Farmingdale State Collage. My artwork was also featured on the cover of Dan’s Paper. I currently have work up LI Biennial exhibition at the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington until November 11, 2018. Also, folks s...Read Full Post »

It’s really been a fun and exciting summer exhibition season. East End Arts Gallery did something experimental for their National Juried show this year. The theme was The Gallerist, The Artist, The Critic, & The Kid. So in a nutshell, four different jurors selected four different exhibits from the same pool of 730 entries.
The exhibition will be up until Sept. 21st.
You can check out a great video and more about the exhibition by cl...Read Full Post »

I cannot say enough about Dan Welden. He is a warm and generous man. It's been a privilege to be able to complete a few solar plate prints under his watchful eye. It’s been truly invigorating to create solar plate prints from work that I completed using traditional and digital methods. I was able to output my mixed media digital creations onto acetate paper that was later used to etch my image onto a plate for printing. There was a similar excitement I felt waiting for the print to come...Read Full Post »

Back in January I was part of a 4 person show at the Main Street Gallery in Huntington. Like I said, trying to catch up. The other artists included in the show were digital artist Alan Richards, sculptor Andrea Davide, and painter Ginger Balizer-Hendler. The exhibition demonstrated how traditional techniques and concepts are being combined with digital platforms and evolving techiniques. The artwork I included in the show focused on my interpretive portraits. All but one of ...Read Full Post »

For any artist it would be worth it to take a day to ride the NYC subway in search of great art. I lived in NYC for several years and during that time I shamefully did not take the time to slow down and look at my surroundings when using the subway. That oversight was corrected a few weeks ago while bumming around NYC with some friends checking out a few of the many artworks the subway has to offer. Don’t overlook Penn Station and delve deeper when you hit Grand Central ...Read Full Post »

Just posting some pictures from the invitation only opening of the Rumney Guggenheim in Brooklyn back on October 8th. I was lucky enough to get an invite after becoming friendly with artist BOXHEAD. I met her by accident at a gallery opening in Amsterdam that included her work and 3 other artists. She let me know she would be in New York and was open to anyone who could help her paint the 4-story building directly next to the Rumney Guggenheim gallery as part of the inaugural opening of the...Read Full Post »

I am unhappy that it's the Brussels attacks that has brought me back to my blog after a long hiatus. I was busy creating art, meeting other artists and enjoying life. That was shattered by the Paris attacks. I struggled to reach acceptance that a place I had spent several summers when I was young with my mom now too had the scares of this awful organization. The Brussels attacks have had an even more profound effect. It was the last stop after visiting Copenhagen and Amsterdam. It's irksom...Read Full Post »

It is with a very heavy heart to share that Sparkboom will be no longer. The state decided not to continuing funding. I could get on a soapbox and go on at length about how I feel about this but it really sucks I think sums it up best. I have immensely enjoyed working with Raj Tawney and Michelle Carollo who sought out new and exciting artists. Their events were pleasently quirky and I enyoed attending and particpating in every one I could. SPARKBOOM™ was nobaly created to provi...Read Full Post »

Had a great time hanging out with Chip Kidd. Great personality and advice!
Chip Kidd's advice: Try, Fail, Try Again, Fail Better.
Chip shared some of the works he attempted for various projects before creating the final product. Some of his designs did not succeed because he discovered during goggle searches someone else had done a similar design or simply when the design got to the people making the final decisions had objections, concerns, didn’t get it or flat out didn...Read Full Post »

The SPARKBOOM opening at ARTSPACE in Patchogue was a huge success! Kudos to Michelle Carollo for organizing and curating the show. The artwork was edgy, youthful, quirky, humorous and unique. Such a breath of fresh air! You have to get yourself over to the exhibition if you missed last night. One of my favorite pieces, Dong Hee Lee's sculpture "Fecundity", is made entirely of white hot glue. I love artists who take ordinary materials and elevate them. Another artist who did this was Jeff...Read Full Post »
