First, I present, The Crows and Pawns of Expansion, created in 2008. Those who remember the Carrollton Club may immediately see a familiar image jump from the background. I found the sign in 2007 after it was cracked in half and laying on the sidewalk. Seeing that it was beyond repair, I decided to give it new life through art. The work is oil and acrylic on the found sign.
Second, I present a piece I created for the Holga Polka exhibition at the Regional Arts Commission in January 2009. The piece titled, In the Light, is oil on canvas painted from an accidential image found on a roll of Holga film. Holga cameras are plastic toy cameras which often distort the image and if not rolled correctly within the case will sometimes overlap images on the film. In the image for this painting, two separate images of a house on Chartley are imposed in the middle. A fun experiment for a painter. If you are interested in learning more about the Holga camera, I recommend my friend Mark Fisher’s webpage. See my list of links.
If you are interested in seeing more of my paintings which have layers of planes infused into the primary imagry, feel free to look around my flickr page.
