Coming soon!

shop opening soon with new prints (with art from 2009)!
it's been 3 years since i closed my shop in 2007,
so it wasn't easy to remember how to make a shop site again...
but it's live, though the prints aren't stocked yet.
we're working on it (this time i have help from friends!)

this round of the small limited edition prints will be hand-embellished :

there will be some open edition prints as well as limited,
and more batches will be added as time goes by.

the prints sold by other sites are still on this page until the shop opens for business.
thank you for your patience & please check back!

here are a couple detail images of the piece.

Alter Ego, Detail. (Left)
Alter Ego, Detail. (Upper Right)

this painting took so much detour (i'm not an efficient painter)
and took me on many versions of adventures, i should say.

here are about 28 stages of incarnation during the process :

AlterEgo, the process.

just like these sculpture jibibut pieces i worked on side by side,
i was in an unknown territory, somewhat.
painting is more familiar to me, but i was experimenting with abstraction,
so it took so many turns... some i'm sad that i didn't stay there.

i'll know better next time!

Sneak Peek for the new Thinkspace Gallery.

this weekend is the grand opening (with 3 exhibits!) of Thinkspace Gallery
at their new location in Culver City.
Congratulations, guys!!

i will have a new painting in their group show, Vision, alongside
Anthony Pontius solo show and Hung & Gather group show.

here's a little peek of the piece :

i'm a bit nervous because it's kind of a different painting and this one started sort of
as an experiment (not really intended to show). i've been meaning for to juxtapose
figurative elements with abstract/expressionistic qualities.
i often end up over-refining (to my standards that is), and rue that i didn't leave them all rawer.
still got a lot of work to do to get where i want, but this is a start for me...
full piece with process pictures to come soon!

+ here's a new great interview with the co-owners of Thinkspace Gallery.

work in progress

a midway process photo for the jibibuts sculptures.
i kinda wish i'd left it at that stage, now looking back...

+ see finished products here & the show preview from more artists here!
(and yoskay's amazing candy troup!!)

Post for Jibibuts Customs sculpture

i've gotten some emails about missing out on the blog post
about the sculpture pieces
, or it not showing up on blog feed...

i realized that maybe when i published it - then hid it realizing i had to
keep it under wraps til gallery preview - then reposted, some blog feeds
didn't recognize it as a new item to show as it was originally created the previous week.
that's just my theory - either way sorry about that!

the post about them with animated gifs right here!
