I have set up a small on line shop to offer some one of a kind works to collect. I will only be posting limited series and small works at affordable prices. This will be my alternative to numbered and signed prints and posters. Each work will be unique and handmade yet very accessible. The works will also be on specials from time to time, starting with this holiday season when I will be marking stuff down from 20%-40%. This will only be until the 20th of December. Please stop by and have a look see and also, please do tell a friend! GO TO THE SHOP Thank you!

For the past 6 years, David and I have been talking about doing an entire exhibit of collaborative work. Tonight in Berlin , the 9th of November 2012, our exhibit opens. About a year ago to put ourselves to the task of spending as much time as we could together, hashing out ideas and making art. And now we are both in Berlin and 4 days of living in the gallery, we got it done... For those in the area, here is the address info and for those not, I have some links to Strychnin Gallery and progress shots below. Enjoy, we worked ourselves pretty hard for this show, worth every second that I lived it.

Another year has gone by and it is that time of year again to head off to Germany for a few exhibits. I will be returning to Art Fair in Cologne with Strychnin/Yasha Young Gallery for an installation I am calling "Kingdom Of Spirits". It is an ongoing collection of works I have been working on for the past 2 years. Most of the images are of my niece, Carly, who I have been photographing for several years. The narrative has been about memory for the most part. I have been revisiting places I have grown up around as Carly traversed through forests and paths I would play in as a child. As well as my install in Cologne, I will be traveling to Berlin for an exhibition I am having in collaboration with artist David Stoupakis. Stoupakis and I have become close friends over the past five years and have been waiting to have the chance to create a body of work in which we collaborate on every piece. Well, Strychnin Gallery has offered us the venue and for the past year we have been preparing a body of work which we are titling "Requiem:Caretakers of the garden of the Stars". These paintings are a collections of characters that one may encounter while traveling through the realm of Purgatory. It is an homage to the Requiem by Mozart, Dante's Purgatory and to the loved ones who have passed on. We will both be installing the show in Germany which opens the 9th of November at Strychnin. If you are in the area or know anyone who may be interested in seeing this, please pass on the info. This is a rare opportunity to see this collaboration between the two of us.
