"In visual arts it was the face, usually in portraiture, where the viewer found closely rendered depictions of individuals, which sought to reveal something of their character, personality or social position. However, in the post-war era a radical shift took place. Recent decades of art history have put the idea of ever accessing a true or unitary self into question, while at the same time opening up new avenues of expression, freeing artists to explore identities and themes previous kept at the margins. The show presents works, in a variety of mediums — print, painting, photography— from artists all across the world, engaging fruitfully with this new openness.  

While a number of the works are close to traditional portraits, many of the artists focus on the body or physical presence instead of the capturing expression or representational likeness. While the faces depicted are not necessarily in the traditional mode of portraiture, they nonetheless are united by fostering a distinct and memorable encounter with the viewer."

"Faces" at Site:Brooklyn//Opening reception, May 25, 2018

I am thrilled for my painting "German Fairy Tales" to be included in "Faces" at Site:Brooklyn.

A great contemporary space for this exciting, well curated show that explores an expansive definition of portraiture.

Residency// c3:initiative @ Camp Colton

I had the privilege of being the pilot resident for c:3initative's residency program at Camp Colton, Oregon.

With the goal of learning the mystical ways of welding and metal working, I collaborated with sculptor Neal Fegan. Over the course of two weeks, Neal helped bring "Conceptual America" into 3-dimensions. This sculpture (unfinished) belongs to a new and ongoing project of the same name.
