Sorry for the absense, I have recently been abroad in the UK touring with my band, NO DEVOTION. If you get a chance, check us out. Our debut album will be released this spring/summer.
Aside from that i have been locked up in my studio making work for my upcoming group show, and in fact my first exhibition with my new LA gallery COREY HELFORD. I have high hopes that this will be a very prosperous and beautiful relationship.
Here is one of the paintings I will be showing titled "The sky will bow to your beauty'.
I thought I would share with you the statement I just composed to go along with the exhibition press release:
"My body of work submitted for the 'Four' exhibition is primarily focused on expressing beauty and creating paintings that are emotionally compelling. In an age of abundance I am beginning to discover that many people are searching for a deeper and often spiritual richness, purpose and meaning beyond what most commodities can offer, myself included. I try to express and share a creative joy and purity through the language of beauty and story in my paintings with the hope that it resonates with the viewer bringing a lightness and space into their being into which can flow passion, virtue and the celebration of life. Through quieting my own mind I create my paintings through a meditative and holistic approach, allowing intuition and a natural sensory intelligence to guide my hand, often making expressive choices by embracing serendipity. The paintings for this show are a celebration of the sensual beauty of human form with a mystical, often fairytale narrative. They are painted with a deliberate creative passion and deep joy with the hope that these experiences are conveyed and shared with the viewer."
