Out of the studio and up on the gallery walls, still need to play with the lighting, but it’s all coming together and I thought I’d share a little taste. Included in the exhibition are eighteen paintings and four of my objects. Please come join me in celebrating the showing of the new work “Conversations From Within The Language Of Nature” at the Walter Art Gallery this Friday, March 14th from 6pm until 9pm. Jonathan and Regula Sanchez “The Upper Strata” will be joining in the festivities with “An intimate acoustic musical performance playing a mix of favorites, alt originals and traditional bottleneck blues.” The Walter Art Gallery is located at 6425 East Thomas Road, Scottsdale AZ 85257. I hope to see you there.
I’ve been away from the lights of civilization, enthralled by the spectacle of the moon’s nightly passage. Waxing Gibbous to Full. Now back in the studio, an attempt to articulate the memory in washes of Anthraquinone Blue, Transparent Iron Oxide and Smalt Hue over Derwent Charcoal. These luscious blocks of burnt wood are the foundation for this nocturne exploration. Ghosts in frenzy of darkness, illuminated.
