After many years, (25) of the most fantastic diversion, ( a carrier in museum exhibit design and fabrication) after art school,(MFA SFAI) I've started painting again.
During the year of 2017 I painted a painting a day. I started the paintings as a protest of the 2016 presidential election outcome. But it became an artistic process, not a political one. It also became a daily practice, not unlike meditation, prayer or exercise. For me it became the visual meter for my growth and transitions thru the year. A great way to push the cart down the hill, (a metaphor for the momentum of the expressive side of my imagination and precusor to creative thought). All 365 were on exhibit this year at Delphi in Alameda.
This year that momentum created 100 tardigrade paintings,(on exhibit now at the Octopus Literary Salon in Oakland). And I was so fortunate to do media illustrations for Philip Glass's, ‘In the Penal Colony’ New Production with Oper Parallèle.
And now in the new year,(2019) 58 paintings on display at the Canessa Gallery in San Francisco.
I hope to see you there.
