Free To Be Me!
Framed on Fifth Gallery April 2-27, 2019
Isn’t that a crazy name for my 7th solo show?. I have been searching for its name for a while, but today it hit me! I have been making all this new work for my show, but rather than a cohesive whole where all the paintings resemble each other, the body of work seemed to separate itself into 3 varying degrees of abstraction: From extremely abstracted to much more representational, yet never going all the way to non-objective or realism. All the work is about the landscape that I love and live in, but just like the weather changes, so does my mood and desire. I have long resisted being pigeonholed into only one style, believing it to be the doom of a creative soul. I have fretted about it, threatened to tear up all my work and rip out all my hair, but I am coming to understand that this is who I have been created to be; fashioned unlike any other; meant to shine with my own Light. So I present to you my efforts and hope that you feel the joy and pleasure I feel when I am lost in my own little world in my studio. Welcome in my friend.
