“Twin solo shows” probably sounds a little weird, but basically I’ve got exhibitions running concurrently at The Dapper Pig and Blick Art Materials, both in Evansville, Indiana. They both run through June!
Each show is all 16×20 canvases, all $85 each which is WAY less than my canvases typically go for. So feel free to go take advantage of the sale! I think it’s something like 20 works in all, possibly more. (I hung the shows in a bit of a flurry.)
FROM THE STURM ARTIST STATEMENT: You’re seeing half of a double show I’m doing here & at Blick Arts for the month of June. The shows are “Sturm und Drang” (Storm and Stress) and this is the STURM part! I’ve had a rough year as a mom and a daughter, but I’m still hanging in there with the ones I love. This show is our victory.
STURM (STORM), hosted at The Dapper Pig, includes The Pretty Sun and Lunar Rainfall, two works centered around the idea of natural storms and destruction (world-ending in the case of The Pretty Sun).
Blick Art Materials hosts DRANG (STRESS), the more deeply personal half, and includes a portrait of my youngest son, who’s bravely facing some challenges, and 100 Keys, a scene from the recurring nightmare of a close friend of mine.
Jon and I work great together and often find inspiration in each other’s art! Jon’s beautiful watercolors with their brilliant prismatic colors and playful subject matter (like “50 Shades of Greyhound,” pictured on the far left of our HARMONY flyer) go perfectly with my own bright digital paintings.
Plus, I just love working with this man!
Our art hangs at the Alhambra Theatre at Haynie’s Corner Arts District, Evansville IN thru June. We’ll also be displaying out front this June First Fridays, June 3rd 6pm-9pm. Come see us!
Shots from my August 2015 solo installation centered on the poem “Darkness” by Lord Byron. I talk in more detail about creating the show here.
“Mutual Hideousness” detail, this diptych is made from “Dream Three” and “Humankind”
“Hour by Hour” (center) was created using imagery from “Endless Forest” and “War Angels.”
“Burning Cities” (bottom) contains imagery from “Tales from the Clarkside” and “ABOVE” as well as “Down Your Street” sketchbook, “The killing of Dreams” comic, and other work.
“War did glut himself again” includes imagery from my comic The Ocean as well as parts of “The Sleep of Reason”
“Unearthly Aspect,” detail. I decoupaged layers of colored tissue paper onto the painting, then did thin washes of black paint.
