I am very pleased to be invited by the lovely Lillan Munch to participate in a show at her gallery, which opens this January, 2012.
The show is titled "Next To The Sea". It is a 3person show and the first extensive showing I will be doing in NYC in 5 years. I am thrilled to be premiering a few of my new large format Polaroids.

Japan Relief

I am pleased to say that with the assistance of the wonderful crew of Strychnin Gallery and my exhibit there in June, Kaidan Shu, I was able to donate 700 Euros(aprox $950) to Japan relief from their devastating earthquake this year. It is not much but there is no way I could have raised this much without the help of Strychnin.
Thank you Strychnin and I love you Japan.

Art Fair 21 Cologne 2011 day 1, 2, 3

Well, as I expected, we are all exhausted from travel, installation, anxiousness, beer, and other extra curricular activities. Soooooo, I am not going to write too much and just post some pictures of the past 3 days.
Just a quick explanation, I arrived 5 am on Tues, went to drop my stuff at my buddy Tobias's flat and meet up with Marcus so we could head over to the venue and install. It is always great to meet up with old friends, meet new ones and see what they have been up to with their art.
No sleep for 2 days, lots of coffee, and just plain old work work work...The opening is tomorrow. Time to catch up with some sleep.

October is here and it is once again time to travel to Cologne Germany for the Art21 fair. This will be the 5th year I will be attending the fair with Strychnin Gallery. It runs from Oct. 29 to Nov. 1st
I am very excited to have the gallery showcase my newest work. I call this group of 5 works "Underwater Empire on Fire". I feel this is the first part of a larger body of work called "Burden of Dreams". I am looking forward to seeing my comrades and fellow artists as well as the beautiful city.
I will be hanging with the likes of Miraschi, Daniel van Nes, Elena and Ekaterina Popovy, Marcus Poston, David Stoupakis, Eric van Straaten, Raf Veulemans, Benjamin Vierling to name just a few the fantastic artists that will be presented by Strychnin Gallery in Art21 in conjunction with the Blooom creative industries Art fair.
Fingers crossed for a successful art fair for all!

These are the works I will have hanging.
