I just want to share a bit of good news! A painting titled, Expansion has been juried into Art St. Louis‘ annual regional exhibition! Expansion is my first Carrollton piece to portray the lonely homes: broken and well-lit interiors, ghostly figures that exist between solidity and mere memories, with a binding, looming plane shape outlined like a grand plan over the whole scene. I’ve recently started using Carrollton imagery in my paintings, and the works so far are still in a very early stage for a series. I had suspected that other paintings of mine would stand a better chance of getting into the show. However, my efforts of incorporating Carrollton into my works do seem to be paying off and I am very excited to be a part of this show nevertheless!
Art St. Louis XXIV opens Nov. 3rd and closes December 30th, 2008. The opening reception is November 15th from 7PM until 9PM, with a pre-reception talk with the juror Mark Masuoka at 6PM.
Let me know if you will make it to the opening!
