Studio Moving Sale

I am sad to announce that I moving my studio out of Golden Belt in Durham at the end of September. I love the space and the community but since the birth of my son Ryland it has been difficult to get here as much as I need to. Most of my recent work has been done at home (in the middle of the night). At any rate, as I transition to the new home studio I am having a studio cleaning sale 9/20 and 9/21.…

some small drawings from May

Here are a few small drawings from last month.  These are two stage drawings, the color first then the black.  These explore chaotic evolution similar to the way my prints compare figures by overlay.

Some ink drawings from May 11, 2013 at 6:32pm.  These are each about 4 inches tall.  I have been doing a lot of drawings in this size lately.  I have been using Prismacolor markers with a brush tip and they have the ability to make these incredibly thin lines.  The extreme pressure sensitivity has lead me to experiment with chair and desk height to get the optimal arm position. I have good results on a low lap desk that allows my whole arm to move.…

Sketchbook 2013

It’s been awhile since I posted drawings from my sketchbook.  Here are some from February 1st, 2013.  These drawings are in preparation for Number 433.  Number 432 is already in progress and mostly finished, those of you who follow my Instagram have seen some progress shots.  If I can finish it in time 433 will be in my upcoming show at The Carrack Modern Art with Ryan McKellar and Joe McDonough March 11-23, 2013.  We have a few special performances planned and I may even be creating an installation… but more on that later.  …

New Painting – Number 431

431

I have finally completed this painting, Number 431.  I started this back in November after completing the three blue paintings (427-430).  After getting derailed by Thanksgiving, then Art Basel, then a trip up to New Hampshire for Christmas it is finally done. This is another wall-sized painting – 60″ x 90″ – that’s 5 ft by 7.5 ft. I have 3 more this size planned.

Here are some progress shots:…
