After Entropy

monotype with solar etching center, artists proof 

18.25" x 13.5"

$400 value

Scientists have long explored the condition of life from the viewpoint of entropy; things break down over time. Bodies die. What might a world look like after entropy - beyond the power of the entropic principle? This work explores the energy of transformation.

I will be gifting this piece to the winner of this season's giveaway.

The winner will be announced on September 20th.

We Are One 

Fluid Media September 2023 

New exhibit!

Find it here.

All is fluid. In physics, a fluid is a body whose particles move easily among themselves. We artists who are involved with fluid media know this property of fluidity. The substance has discrete particles, and yet they move as one.

Seen from a great remove, this is a good description of life: a situation where smaller parts create the whole. We are a small part of an absolutely amazing world.

Charles and Ray Eames published a brilliant book called “Powers of Ten”, which takes us visually from the galaxy scale to the proton scale of life. In every scale, we see “particles” moving among themselves. We see patterns replicating and changing and motion everywhere..

As Rick Rubin says in the end of his foundational book, “The Creative Act”,

“Art has an ability to connect us beyond the limitations of language.

Through this, we get to face our inner world outward, remove the boundaries of separation, and participate in the great remembering of what we came into this life knowing: There is no separation. We are one.”

The online exhibit is on view through March 8th.

Above: Matter Unfolding

20" diameter, oil paint, mica, Venetian plaster on Yupo with 23k gold mounted on panel, .5" thick. $2,000.

From the curatorial statement:

..... For a long time, we believed the experience of the visual language was located in the brain. As with the new story, we are re-membering the sensual delight of experiencing visual art. Though primarily visual, this experience manifests in all our senses. We show up for the world when we expand our understanding of this broad-based experience. The rich network of sensual delights present in this mix of work does what all masterful artwork accomplishes: it shows up for the world, as the world shows up for it.

Above: Gate of Thanatos, 30" diameter, oil with mica and Venetian plaster on yupomounted on panel, $2,850.

This work is part of a new exhibit at Artsy.net, Thinly and Thickly, organized and curated by Deborah Barlow. From her curatorial statement:

One of the reasons paint has had such longstanding appeal as a medium is that it is spectacularly responsive. From the translucent veils of color flowing across a Helen Frankenthaler canvas to the densely textured impasto of Claude Monet’s water lilies, paint speaks in the parlances of thin and thick, transparent and opaque, free flowing and controlled.

And while these terms describe how paint is applied to a surface, thick and thin can also suggest the aura that a work possesses. Some art has a presence that feels diaphanous and thin, leaning into what feels permeable, numinous and ephemeral.

An Idiosyncratic Studio Visit
Over 4 short episodes, I narrate an exploration of my work across 30+ years. This project illuminates connecting ideas and processes that have shaped the continued development of my work. It identifies key influences and collaborators. The project is idiosyncratic in that it is not meant to be comprehensive, nor overarching. It is a view into an artist's thought process, and how this shapes the work.

All 4 parts are now on YouTube: Click the box to see all 4 episodes. 

Total run time 14 minutes.
