Hunkered Down

I’m as focused as I can be. Other than seeing clouds as thought bubbles, my imagination is focused on this new body of work. I’m hunkered down, but I’ve still got a million fragments that I’m furiously weaving together into a cohesive visual experience (or something like that). I’ll be hunkered down continuously until October.

I’ve got some things to say, so I keep on fighting!

The Edge Of Convergence, my first solo exhibition in a long time (far too long) is finally here. This exhibition is the culmination of a huge series of mixed media paintings I started many years ago.

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.
