🎀 Hi friends 🎀
Just dropped off three of my pieces that have been selected as part of a big, annual holiday showcase at Bromfield Gallery in Boston, MA.
The show is called Winter Works and showcases the work of over 60 artists.
One of the pieces chosen was on view this summer at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, NH, another shown at Nave Gallery in Somerville, and the third has been hanging at The Gal_lery for the past few weeks as part of their first invitational show Gals n Pals.
The show opens on First Friday, December 2nd, and there's going to be so many good pieces and all for less than $1k! So it'll be a good opportunity if you or a friend have a void on their wall that they're looking to fill 😜
In other news, I'm in the midst of struggling w some new paintings, and I want to give you a sneak peak of what I've been working on. It's a continuation of my recent work, but focused less on memory and more on experiences. Evidently they wind up being like the same thing right? Lol so I guess what the difference here is is that these are like, my reactions to the world right now. The unease, the literal simultaneous killing of marginalized people and the very planet we inhabit. I'm worried sick abt the planet and yet the whole world is so goddamn beautiful. There's certainly a dichotomy and i try to speak to that through color selection and paint application. I don't do sketches for paintings. I work directly onto the canvas, and believe that drawings are their own thing. Therefore, the gestation period for ea canvas varies - like greatly! Resulting in some paintings exposing the raw or gessoed support and others becoming physically weighty w paint! Anyway, here I am reacting.
