This piece spilled out of my subconscious onto the canvas. A really POW!-her-full piece if I must say so myself (apparently I must). She was hanging in my living room for awhile and I felt protected and empowered by her. Now she’s hanging out at a bar in a chateau…lucky her!
I once read that Jesus is the most widely depicted figure in artwork and this particular Jesus caught my eye. The various rusty tones and dripping aspect add to his expression.
A series of collages where I showcased sunglasses and masks, using a variety of Origami paper, magazine images, feathers, metal rivets and acrylic paint. The collages feature dream-like sequences and are accentuated by bold lines of paint. Apparently, I was onto something when I dreamt up this exhibition up in October 2019 prior to the Coronavirus pandemic.
This piece was created for my 2020 Expo featuring collages, all, coincidentally(?) with characters donning some sort of mask. In this case, sunglasses (a mask of sorts). This ultra-feminine image appears to be looking toward the future, ready for absolutely anything with her jet black hair, goggle-like sunglasses and her killer orange lipstick.
“Something Blue” inspired by Pablo Picasso created during his self-proclaimed “The Blue Period” to Wassily Kandinski’s “Blue Rider Period” to three of my favorite albums of all time…Miles Davis “Kind of Blue,” Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” (a masterpiece of sadness) and “The Blue Notebooks” by Max Richter, my favorite minimalist composer.
This bar table and stools are a throwback to my furniture line “Signs of the Time” using street signs and steel including “Dangerous Curves Ahead,” “Scenic Route,” and “Bump.” This piece is dedicated to the French people and their love of food. These particular signs are often visible along motorways in France.
