New York Group Show

111123 43" x 53" Mixed Media on Panel by James Godman

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.

The Amber Inn

A friend of mine was recently in Chicago for a project we worked on together, and he stayed at this fine establishment.  A few days after he left, I shot this Polaroid and sent it to him so he would always be reminded of the Amber Inn.

New Work

Here is a new painting entitled 110501 (Clotaire).  43″ x 43″ Digital Pigment Print, Acrylic, and Resin on Board.  Hope you like it.

LuckyPix Interview

My friends at LuckyPix asked me a few questions to share on their site.

My Palette Knife

While working today, I noticed how cool my palette knife looks so I took a picture of it.

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!

Holiday Inn Stay You Campaign

The kind people at McCann Erickson New York tapped me to shoot the new Holiday Inn Stay You web campaign.  We had a fabulous time shooting portraits for a few days at the decked out Industria Superstudio in the West Village.  A big shout and thank you to all the Industria staff for being so nice and helping make our shoot go smoothly!

Here’s a few samples of how the images were used.  To see several of them animated, please visit the “motion” section of my site.
