Recently Published: A Year in Painting

Purchase A Year in Painting by following this link.

The first monograph by myself. A Year in Painting chronicles the Painting A Day project that I undertook that would jump-start my artistic creativity, encourage personal experimentation and eventually change my artwork in ways that were unexpected.

This monograph, traces the project that began life in late 2014 that would eventually become a project to create a painting every day of the year for 2015. The artworks are presented in chronological order allowing the reader to go on the same journey that the artist experienced.

A Year in Painting contains over 370 full color images with a introduction by Chris Martin.

So I gave myself a “snow day”.

I don’t have any real problems with the weather, however, this winter in New York (and elsewhere) was pretty unrelenting. With multiple weeks where the temperature never got above freezing, I found my mind starting to wander about a lot of things. Among them was my artwork. During the 12th or 13th day off due to snow, I thought the studio deserved one too. So I opened my mind to new approaches and ideas. It turned into an avalanche of new work produced over a period of 2 – 3 weeks. This new body of work, became more than 70 artworks on paper in that time and I realized that maybe this was a snow day I would remember for quite some time.

The work represents a shift in the final image of the artwork, but less so about the approach. The images as always are processed based with attention given to the act of constructing and deconstructing the image while pursuing the final image. I view this approach as the result of a process that is questioned, documented, changed and eventually a realization that the entire process is never finished. What is leftover are markers to observe and gauge the decision points of the process along the way.

These are a couple of the new works on paper, paintings are currently drying and will be posted soon. Check my web site for more images.

Article in the Frederick News Post

Lauren LaRocca has written a nice article about the current show at the Delaplaine Arts Center and a bit about my process.

I’ve been bowled over by how positive everything has been in Frederick – from an easy to work with group at the Delaplaine to attentive viewers and artists in the area and thoughtful press. The show at the Delaplaine has been a tremendous experience. – Thanks to everyone.

A few installation images from the recent opening of my current show, The Expanded Field. On display at the Delaplaine Art Center through February 26.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the surprisingly snowy opening. No show is simply a one person affair and I am thankful for the help of everyone at the Delaplaine for everything they did as well as a special “Thank You” to Stephen Boocks for his help and advice on the installation of the show.
