The Final Night Of Preparation

Tonight is the last night of working in the studio for this exhibition. Tomorrow I load up the panel van and drive everything to the gallery. Once again, I survived the multitude of battles that take place in the studio of the artist. I plan to write more thoughts on that subject at a later date. For now, it’s showtime. Finally.

The Title Has Been Chosen

I finally decided on a title for my upcoming exhibition at Jacksonville State University (February 5-26, 2015). Titles are important to me, regardless of whether they’re mine. Developing a title is an organic process that I usually enjoy. Typically, my goal is to find a title that relates to the content of the artwork. However, good titles sometimes have autobiographical aspects to them as well which can still relate to the content of the artwork itself. After all, art imitates life and life imitates art. That’s the case with my title for this exhibition, The Edge Of Convergence. The Edge Of Convergence is the perfect title for this collection of artwork. It relates to the content of the work, the process in which it was made and the many moments of convergence that have occurred during the time the work was created.
