new work - encaustic on paper

These new pieces are all encaustic monoprints over digital prints, some with collage elements as well. These four are all 18" x 18" unframed. They feel like a looser, freer way to work than encaustic on panel and allow me to experiement with more painterly technique than traditional encaustic allows.

They will be part of an upcoming show at the UM Duderstadt Gallery in February: Nano, Micro, Macro - a Matter of Scale. The exhibition will be three artists - John Hart Anastasios, Sara Adlerstein Gonzalez and myself.

Art on the House

desert lake from on very high, 24" x 48", encaustic and digital

I'm part of an exhibition of Washtenaw County artists at State Representative Pam Byrnes' office. Link to the exhibition here. The piece above is one of those in the show. This show was organized under the auspices of the Art Alliance and will be the first of a series.

New Year and art exhibitions coming soon

Unsurprisingly the holiday month zoomed by crazily fast with family coming and going, kids doing exams, my mother-in-law moving here and related chaos. Mostly good but I'm definitely ready to get back to a routine in the studio and that's a good thing because I have a lot of shows coming up very fast.

In February the two of note are at WSG in Ann Arbor where I'm participating in their family and friends exhibition (Thanks Lynda!). Also in Februrary-March I'm part of a group show with Anastasios John Hart and Sara Adlerstein Gonzalez - Nano, Micro, Macro - a Matter of Scale at the Duderstadt Gallery. John does nanotechnology and Sara is the micro - paintings based on microscopic images - I'm macro of course with my satellite-based images. (best place to see Sara's work online just now is in this blog back a few entries). Duderstadt is a big space and we're planning an exhibition which will include interactive components as well as paintings and prints - I'm excited!
