And now for the big question I know you are all dying to ask: "Where oh where can I purchase these lovely paintings for my personal collection/museum/gallery that I curate?" The answers are as follows: "Mod Girl" is being auctioned off at the Grosse Pointe Academy Action Auction on May 8th, more info here: http://www.academyactionauction.org/
All of the other pieces seen above will be for sale at the upcoming College For Creative Studies end of the year student show, Friday May 14th. I will have quite a bit up seeing as this is my last semester at CCS! My studio is also full to bursting so expect the prices to be within reason ;) More information here: http://www.collegeforcreativestudies.edu/seo
It's been fun but I am excited to move on to greener pastures. U of M's School of Art and Design for my MFA? Yale? Chicago Academy of the Arts? Time will tell, o faithful blog viewers..

these photos are from my diverse body of work spanning the last few years as i've progressed as an artist but more importantly a human being, and i think represents a tension in my psyche manifested through my work, which i am more aware of now than i ever have been..
i feel myself constantly torn between the lush visceral attraction of working representationally.. versus the automatic, unbridled expression that celebrates the material for what it is that is embodied in abstraction.. i think i will continue to blur the line as i explore through this life, looking towards gerhard richter and martin kippinberger for mentors..

It has been quite a while since I've posted. I've since finished the painting that was in progress in the last post, as seen above. I've also done a bunch of other work expounding and exploring subjects of voluntary consciousness-alteration. I grew poppies in my studio which were displayed next to the painting, however I never documented it because I am an idiot. I also started and finished this following painting but never got a finished photo before I dismantled the painting to move it:This painting was about 6 feet by 4 feet, one day I will re-stretch it but my imagination has since drifted to other topics. While I am still enamored and fascinated by brains and the way reality and its perception can be altered voluntarily/unwittingly through chemicals my new work is a little more preoccupied with the nature of the gaze and the act of looking, a time honored concern of Art with a capital A. I will do my best to keep this more up to date from now on! signing out for today, dear internet.
