There Are No Survivors

This is a new painting I completed the end of May 2012 entitled There Are No Survivors.  Mixed media on panel, 48″ x 48″  In an unrelated matter, I accepted my invitation to art.sy today and I don’t know why.

The New York Group Show, Rebellion and Empowerment in Contemporary Art, was a roaring success, and I was happy to participate by hanging this new painting.  Many thanks to Kianga Ellis for organizing the show.  The piece on the left is by Brian Dupont.

Marks Need To Be Made

I’m extremely lucky to have wonderful commercial clients for my photography and motion work, and I’ve had some great projects lately, but I miss painting.  Its been awhile since I made a painting, and the reality is that its not something I’m able to do between checking e-mails or photographing some amazing person.  So I’m gearing up to sort of disappear and get back in the groove, because marks need to be made.

Here are some examples of my most recent work, all of which are 43″ square, and the first two ended up hanging in Keith Haring’s old apartment and seen in a fairly recent New York Magazine article thanks to Cole and Garrett:

Many thanks to Golden Paints for the superb technical support and for making the great UV protective varnish I’ve used for a few years!
