Fountain Art Fair, 2013 with the Hullaballoo Collective!

This year I'm proud to announce that I will be showing some of my artwork as part of a group show in the Fountain Art Fair. The fair is located in the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City, it will run during art fair week, March 8th - 11th, on the centennial of the historic Armory Show.

I will be showing 6 mixed media pieces, together with the Hullaballoo Collective!
The Hullaballoo Collective is a diverse group of artists who have come together through social media to present salon style exhibitions of collective strength and intrepid individuality—rowdy expressions that offer audiences the possibilities presented by an inclusive understanding of art. Outsider, emerging, veteran; we are thinkers, and we are makers. We are artists. We are part of the egalitarian zeitgeist, the energy that underlies the new century and that uses new tools to reach broad audiences.

If you are in NYC, please come for the opening day, I will be there on Friday, March 8th. The fair will open to the public at 5pm. The Opening Night Reception will start at 7pm until Midnight. The opening event promises to be exciting, with many performance artists, celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the historic Armory Show in 1913. The Armory Show was the first international art fair in NY that brought ground breaking avant garde art to view for the first time in America.
The fair will also be open on Saturday between 12 - Midnight, and Sunday, 12 - 5 pm.

The Hullaballoo Collective will be in Booths C202, C203, & C204

I'm Back!

HAPPY 2013!!!

I can't believe it has been over two years since I last updated this blog! I sure didn't plan for such a long hiatus, and didn't realize it has been so long... sometimes time seems to just fly by without us realizing it... I know I was busy, and searching, and not sure what is the next step, in terms of the direction my art will take. I've experimented, tried different things. I'm still exploring and experimenting - isn't life about discovery and exploration anyway? So I'll probably continue doing so. But at least now I feel that instead of jumping from one thing to the other, never making a commitment, I'm ready to be where I am, dig deeper, spend some time at this point before moving on to the next one. This is not just another New Year resolution, which have a tendency to be broken a few months or even weeks or days after. I cannot predict the future. All I can do is make my intention heard, and it's all I'm doing. I'll try to be more present. I'll make more, I'll post more. I'm going to post some of the work I've been making since the last time. Happy New Year!

To start, I'll post the mixed-media pieces which I showed in the art fair back in December 2010. They are three dimensional mixed-media pieces, a bit difficult to show well in photographs, because they are not sculptures, rather kind of relief pieces that hang on a wall. I made them using recycled plastic containers and fabric remnants, mounted with photographs of the city and painted/drew over them. Sizes are between about 9'-14' inches, and up to 2.5' inches deep. I called this series Citycycle:
